Baby, if you ever find me
Amongst a host of everyday thoughts
Don’t feel bad
And if you are wondering
How I got under your skin
When you meant to keep this casual
It’s simple really
I was truthful and sincere
Not something you’ve encountered of late
I could have played mind games
The kind of thing you are used to
But I decided a long time ago
I will be gentle with hearts
They are vulnerable and so easily bruised, like mine,
Love is a lot of power in your hand
And without great care
Can do enormous harm

So baby, if you find me
Amongst a host of everyday thoughts
you’ll know why I’m there
