Baby, do you think
You could love me
Just for today?

I won’t ask for much

Just that you hold my hand
sit by my side
and let me feel a little miserable
about the things you keep saying

you know the stuff
I’m talking about

I feel like
My heart is shattered inside
I’m breathing all the same
Smiling and walking around
As if everything’s alright

Well it isn’t

Don’t believe me when I say
I’m doing well
‘Cos I’m not

So do you think
You could love me
Just this once?

Just for today?
