Verse 1:
I'm lyin' here awake at night waitin' for the sun to rise
Tomorrow seems so far away as I dream of the look in your eyes
The clock is countin' backwards now it knows I can't keep still
My mind won't free you from my heart and I guess it never will

Verse 2:
The time is getting longer now the minutes just won't pass
I'm staring blindly at these walls they hold me in like a cast
Your whisper breaks the silence as I hear your voice in my head
The shadows torture my soul in the dark cuz I'm all alone in my bed

Chorus:
Tell me why I love you the way that I do
Tell me why I would do anything for you
Tell me why I need to feel you here tonight
You hold the key to what's in me
Now you've opened up my heart and set it free

Verse 3:
I think of all the times we share and how you make me feel
I know that I'm a lucky man cuz all my dreams are real
You're everything I need and want and you're everything I crave
I'm drowning slowly in your mind but I donít want to be saved

Chorus:
Tell me why I love you the way that I do
Tell me why I would do anything for you
Tell me why I need to feel you here tonight
You hold the key to what's in me
Now you've opened up my heart and set it free

Bridge:
A wooden door and cracks in the floor
A ceiling and four walls
An empty place a hollow space Filled with nothing at all
You came into my world and lifted darkness from my soul
I was broken but your love made me whole

Chorus:
Tell me why I love you the way that I do
Tell me why I would do anything for you
Tell me why I need to feel you here tonight
You hold the key to whatís in me
Now you've opened up my heart and set it free

Outro:
Youíre everything I need and want youíre everything I crave
I know that youíre that one for me you set me free
