I Still Adore

I see myself sitting alone in your chair
as you take your time and you make your hair
I’ve never been so happy to pass the time

I could listen for hours and you sing along
to the verse and the chorus of your favorite song
I’ve never heard a lyric sound so fine

But you never let me listen to you
you never let me put up a fight for you
now i am standing so far from where i stood before
and you’re the one, you’re the one I still adore

I know you’ve seen your share
Of suitors who say they care
I’m not nieve to believe I’m the only one

But this much I know only I can shine
the light of a heart, a heart that is mine
and it doesn’t always shine for everyone

But you never let me shine it on you
You never let me perfect the art of loving you
now i am left wanting so much more
cause you’re the one, you’re the one I still adore

How long will you linger
I’m a veteran of the ringer
When i asked you to stay
I didn’t mean this way

The part of me that’s in love with you
Won’t go away like I want it to
It needs a reason to leave

But you only gave me a reason to drink
you only gave my heart a reason to sink
I wish you were easier for me to ignore
but you’re the one, you’re the one I still adore
