Confession

I’ve a confession I’ve long thought you guessed
I fall in love with you now and again
I never felt like I’d fallen
Never looked over my heels
But one thing I know about love is
It’s got to be more than the way that it feels

Thousands of fireflies light up the sky
A moment’s romance for the taking
That’s all I’ve caught, but I’ll try one more time
'Cause somewhere the stars must be waiting
I never dared to reach higher
Fearing I’d fall from my ground
But if there’s a star to be reached for
It’s not to be caught reaching down

So please give me your leave to love you
Please give me your leave to love you

I look around at the mess in my room
And I know there’s one that’s just like it in yours
The questions all piled with the clothing and shoes
The answers all hidden in closets and drawers
So if you don’t mind stepping over
Maybe we’ll find them together
So shake all the crumbs from the covers
And just let me open the door

And please give me your leave to love you
Please give me your leave to love you
Please give me your leave

I’ve a confession I’ve long thought you guessed
I fall in love with you now and again
And I love the way that you’ve loved me this far
And I don’t need anything more
But if you’d like to reach up beside me
Just open the door
'Cause I’m knocking
So please let me in
