If It Meant..

by shannon   Aug 14, 2005

I would wear my heart upon my sleeve
If it meant you would stay and never leave

I would run away and leave all the things I loved and knew
If it meant you would come with me too

I would live in the shadows of the night
If it meant your sorrow would be replaced with light

I would jump off this building without the wings to fly
If it meant never again would you have to cry

I would drown in the great depths of the abyss
If it meant I could have one last kiss

I would burry my grave deep in this sand
If it meant, one last night I could hold your hand

I would put myself in all great harm
If it meant tonight I could fall asleep in your arms

I would do all of these things for you
Because I know, you love me too
