She crosses your mind in the morning
She stays there most of the day
She makes you long to see her
No matter the time or place

She talks about you to her friends
Her family gets to meet you, too
She makes you want to show the world
Images taken of the two of you

She gives you reasons to claim her
With no pressure for any title
She brings out the best in you
If you had to, you’d fight for her

She wasn’t who you thought she would be
Maybe she was exactly what you needed
She’s closer to your age
She silences you when you feel defeated

She makes you want to be a better man
She probably loves you but she shouldn’t
She must be everything you wanted
She’s done all the things I couldn’t.
