1Justify My Love

I want to hold your hand in Rome
I want to run naked in a rainstorm
Make love in a train cross-country
You put this in me
So now what, so now what?”

My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you”

3I Do

“It’s always been about me, myself and I
I thought relationships were nothing but a waste of time
I never wanted to be anybody’s other half
I was happy saying I had a love that wouldn’t last
That was the only way I knew til I met you”
-Colbie Caillat

4Say You Won’t Let Go

“I’m so in love with you
And I hope you know

Look how we’ve grown
And I wanna stay with you until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go”

When we lose our winter coats in the spring
‘Cause lately I was thinking I never told you
That every time I see you my heart sings”

Maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you,
If you know what I mean”
-Ingrid Michaelson

Wilshire Boulevard if we choose
Or whatever you want to do
We make the rules”

And felt the fire of your sweet embrace
I swear I knew
I wanna love you forever”

19Just Luv Me

“Just luv me
If you think that I’m saying that because I’m high maintenance

Well you’re wrong ’cause I don’t need nobody when I’m breaking
All I need is your love and a little bit of patience”

20Crazy In Love

“I look and stare so deep in your eyes
I touch on you more and more every time
When you leave, I’m begging you not to go

How I’m feeling and my pride is the one to blame
‘Cause I know I don’t understand
Just how your love can do what no one else can”
