As You

Take the last bit of cake
I’m breaking this bread
to toast to you

The summer behind
I fell back to this shabby earth
but the city seemed new

We collided that night
the Magic disguised
It was not sensational,
but that’s how it grew.

This just has to be as lovely as you
This just has to be as cool
This just has to be as awesome as you
This just has to be as cool

’ll make my last leap for space -
you’re breaking my will
- and holding me still

At 7am, the thump of the club still beating in the street
the siren calls and white noise.
With chaos around, surrounded by sound, could not silence the question you asked of me
As I kissed your face
And said

This just has to be as lovely as you
This just has to be as cool
This just has to be as awesome as you
This just has to be as cool.

This just has to be as lovely as you
This just has to be as cool
This just has to be as awesome as you
This just has to be as cool
This just has to be as cool.
