Why Me

When I couldn't be found
You found me
When I frowned
You were the only one who could see

You broke down my walls
You burned my past
You heard my desperate calls
And for my hand you asked

What is your fascination
I'm no vacation
I'll cause chaos
And a little self-deprivation 

What's inside of me
Let's run this town
Why in me do you believe
I'm destined to drown

You'll see my flaws
You'll want to leave
Don't put this love on pause
But why did you choose me?
