Darling, you are my only love
Behind my truth lies everything you want”

No, my friends won’t love me like you…”

10. “‘Cause when I’m missing you
I’ll stop eating food
And I’ll squeeze into a dress

And say that I love you
I think that I love you.”

Diving in too soon
And I’ll owe it all to you
My little bird”
