I've seen your face a thousand times
Have all your stories memorized
I've kissed your lips a million ways
But I still love to have you around

I've held you too many times to count
I think I know you inside out
And we're together most days
But I still love to have you around

And you're the one I want
And it's not just a phase
And you're the one I trust
Our love is the real thing

Don't go away
My love, my love
I want you to stay
In my life
Don't go away
My lover, my love
I'm happiest when we spend time

You're a salty water, ocean wave
You knock me down, you kiss my face
I know the storms will always come
But I still love to have you around

And Heaven knows what will come next
So emotional, you're so complex
A roller coaster built to crash
But I still love to have you around

You're the one I want
And it's not just a phase
And you're the one I trust
Our love is the real thing

Don't go away
My love, my love
I want you to stay
In my life
Don't go away
My lover, my love
I'm happiest when we spend time
(It's only you and I)
It's only you and I

It's you there when I close my eyes
And you in the morning
I never thought you'd still be mine
Or I'd really need to have you around

Don't go away
My love, my love
I want you to stay
In my life
Don't go away
My lover, my love
I need you, you're my love supply

Don't go away
My love, you're my love supply
I want you to stay
In my life, every day, every night
Don't go away
My lover, you're my love supply
I need you, you're my love supply
