I Choose You

Wow! I can't believe it's been more than a year since I posted some new lyrics. Well, let's just say I've felt a bit inspired lately. The first few lines of this one came to me as I was brushing my teeth last week -- random, right? We've all been in a situation where we have confusing feelings for someone and we're pretty sure they have some sort of feelings for us, but neither one of us had the courage to come right out and say it. So we dance around the issue...for...a...long...time. Although this isn't completely autobiographical, I can definitely identify with the lack of courage stuff! xoxo
We've danced around this for such a long time
We've memorized all the moves
You go left, I go right
But one of us is going to have to choose

I don't mind taking the lead
As long as I know you'll follow me

Whichever way your arrow goes
I wanna let you know I'm gonna follow
Tell me, can't you see it in my eyes?
We're better together
Than our hearts would ever be apart
I know it might seem like such a big surprise
But no matter what we have to go through
This is me saying it out loud I choose you

It's like I woke up one morning and my heart's changed
It beats to every word you've ever said
Wondering if you feel the same
Or if these feelings are all in my head

'Cause it's not every day that someone comes along
Knowing all the words to your favorite song

Whichever way your arrow goes
I wanna let you know I'm gonna follow
Tell me, can't you see it in my eyes?
We're better together
Than our hearts would ever be apart
I know it might seem like such a big surprise
But no matter what we have to go through
This is me saying it out loud I choose you

And I knew we got it right
Knew we got it right
When you showed up on my porch that night
Showed up on my porch that night
You looked me in the eyes and said...

Whichever way your arrow goes
I wanna let you know I'm gonna follow
Tell me, can't you see it in my eyes?
We're better together
Than our hearts would ever be apart
I know it might seem like such a big surprise
But no matter what we have to go through
This is me saying it out loud I choose you

Whichever way your arrow goes
I wanna let you know I'm gonna follow
Tell me, can't you see it in my eyes?
We're better together
Than our hearts would ever be apart
I know it might seem like such a big surprise
But no matter what we have to go through
This is me saying it out loud I choose you
