Wanted to love you more

lyrics

When I look back on things honestly
I was wooed by how you looked at me
And I fooled myself from that very first night

They say Adonis would have envied you
You were cut from stone that much is true
And you were so hard to know
But we got tangled up together

It went on twice as long as it should
I kept hoping it would turn for the good
But when love exaggerates your highs and lows
It’s a matter of time before it implodes
I guess I wanted to love you
More than I really did

We lived on separate sides of the same room
But still lost track of who was whom
It’s amazing what you can assume

I remember once when you were angry
About that stupid room too messy
And I asked myself “Do I wanna marry this?”
No hesitation slowed my no

It went on twice as long as it should
I kept hoping it would turn for the good
But when love exaggerates your highs and lows
It’s a matter of time before it implodes
I guess I wanted to love you
More than I really did

When it was done I remember thinking about
How easy it was to get out
I guess loved never burrowed in too deep

Still I’ll never have such a lover again
And if that’s what counts you were the best of men
And I’ll save a thought of you for when
I get to the other side

It went on twice as long as it should
I kept hoping it would turn for the good
But when love exaggerates your highs and lows
It’s a matter of time before it implodes
I guess I wanted to love you
More than I really did

I guess I wanted to love you
More than I really did
