Just imagine a world of beauty and peace And a song so sweet, cuts you down at the knees Put 'em together, you got some idea Of how I feel about you, my dear I'd like to think one day you'll find out But I'm beginning to have my doubts Cuz you don't know, you'll never know what it feels like loving you Take the winningest hand you've ever been dealt Now throw in a smile that just makes you melt Now my hazy days all seem clearer You want the reason, take a look in a mirror You're getting warmer, doc, yeah you're red hot But a reflection is all you got Cuz you don't know, you'll never know what it feels like loving... You have no idea, what's running through my mind If all in love is supposed to be fair, then I'm just robbing you blind See the happiest man that you've ever known Without the greatest love he's ever been shown Cuz that's what happens when you go away I sit alone in my room all day You could be near or far, you could go fast or slow But you'll always have a hundred miles to go Cuz you don't know, you'll never know what it feels like loving you Loving you

Say you will, yeah I know it's a little late And your car's as warm as your blue eyes But we probably oughtta wait Both not looking for the other half Just a hand on an arm and a stolen laugh And a lifetime to kill Say you will Yeah it's true, I got a tendency to jump the gun Won't you pull this trigger with me and let's be on the run They'll try to catch us and tell us we're wrong We'll show 'em what's what by the bridge of our song And sing til we get our fill Say you will Come on come on, our little world's getting hot as an oven You know it's true, couch it how you want, It's a while not better than nothing So much better than nothing Say you will, never look back again We knew right away that it wasn't if But only a matter of when So take my word, you take me apart And let my sun into your heart And shine on your windowsill Say you will
