Never before have I met someone like you
And when you confuse me I know not what to do
We were so right, could’ve been so much more
But year after year you’d close that door
I tried and tried with all my might
To keep from crying out in the night
For you

For you I would do almost anything
Dance, laugh, maybe even sing
For you I would gladly risk my life
Put myself through pain and strife
For you I would put my feelings aside
Then huddle up and slowly die
And I’d die a happy man
Knowing it was all
For you

Sometimes it seems you’ll rip me apart
Yet I always feel the pain when we part
I wish I knew what I was doin’ wrong
Or that you could teach me a happier song
Girl, there isn’t much I can do
But sit around wanting
For you

For you I would do almost anything
Dance, laugh, maybe even sing
For you I would gladly risk my life
Put myself through pain and strife
For you I would put my feelings aside
Then huddle up and slowly die
And I’d die a happy man
Knowing it was all
For you

Long years ago you stole my heart
With all your beauty, personality, and smarts
You truly are one of a kind
I can’t get you out of my mind
You’re the opposite of run-of-the-mill
And no matter what you do I’ll love you still
Don’t forget that if you ever need me
I’ll still be standing here
Waiting
For you
