It's finally breaking me down
To my credit I feel like I held on as long as I could
I barely recognize myself now
I'd teach my heart to lie if I thought that it would

I don't need the whole world to think I'm special
I don't need him to hang the stars in the sky
Pay for all my sins or save me from drowning
But wouldn't it be nice if he tried?

It's finally tearing me apart
An impossible mending you can't see from the outside
And no one knows where all the pieces are
Do you love me I say, 'Sure' he replied

I don't need the whole world to think I'm special
I don't need him to hang the stars in the sky
Pay for all my sins or save me from drowning
But wouldn't it be nice?

Oh, wouldn't it be nice
If his eyes would light up when he spoke my name
If he'd run to catch me in his arms
At the end of the day?

I don't need the whole world to think I'm special
I don't need him to pull the stars from the sky
Just to string up my name in tiny sparkling lights
But wouldn't it be nice, wouldn't it be nice if he tried?
