I will do the exaggeration game for you.
Speak with hyperbole that cannot be matched.
Decorate you with words like royal apparel,
Paint your heart with words of love,
Do unbelievable things for you,
I hope my love to make you mine.
I will sing you songs; I will sing it aloud,
I will cross the seven seas for you.
Go on an Odyssey just like Jason
And bring you back the Golden Fleece.
Despite all these I won't be proud
Just to show you I want you as mine.
I have a feeling that won’t be enough
I will crawl many miles to kiss your hands
Trek the desert to burn my hatred,
So that all in me is love for you.
I will sing a song that has not been sang
To woo you my love and keep you as mine.
I will do the exaggeration game for you,
A thing of joy I won't regret.
I will do everything to make you smile,
A life of bliss we will enjoy.
As water is to a thirsty soul,
So is your love to me, my pretty one.
