With you, time means nothing and the space between us vanishes
Your delicate soul takes me to a world that makes reality feel like
And my mind elopes into your soul
I love you in ways I cannot explain
And my heart beats for you without my consent
Every time I breathe, it’s because you give me a reason to live
And you do not need a stick for my heart. For you, it already beats
Without a torch, you light up my world
With your touch, I feel like the only girl in the world
With you, I promise our reality will look like a fantasy
You will go to sleep every night with me by your side
You will wake up every morning to see a smile on my face
I promise everyday will be better than the one before.
