lyrics

Started in a dream
I was breathing for the very first time
Visions of a scene
I was free to make the choices all mine
All I could believe
I was through with him and he was on my mind
Life is shorter than it seems
Get to living or you'll be busy dying

I can't stand it
Will our life Begin
and our trouble see the end
I can't stand it
Will our life begin
or the devil settle in

Simple life it seems
So damn easy, why do I still find it hard
I'm a portrait of a woman
Who has taken all the heartaches and is scarred
You can take me out
You can take me out of comforts that I've known
Baby dare to take a chance on me!
I can feel you in my bones

I can't stand it
Will our life begin
and our trouble see the end
Ohh I can't stand it
Will our life begin
or the devil settle in

I want to say to you'
Say to you
I really love you you
you you you
You keep me up all night'
all of the night
I can't escape this thought
we could live this life
