lyrics

When you asked me for the moon
I said ok cause I had no clue
How many ill-fated fools had failed before.
And when you asked me for the sea
I said yes because I didn’t meet
All the hope-filled has-beens who had sailed for shore.

And this is not all you wanted,
But it is all I’ll ever have for you.

When you asked me for the stars
I knew they’re not meant to be ours,
But I was desperate not to disappoint you.
So I climbed and I clawed my way into space;
Still they were much too far away,
So I scooped up some rays and hoped they’d be enough for you.

But they were not all you wanted
And they were all I’ll ever have for you.

So you can blame it on me,
Say I tried half-heartedly.
You can blame it on me
That I dropped the ball again.
And you can blame it on me,
But still it’s true
That we are not who we used to be anymore.

When I asked you to be mine
I should’ve known that all this time
You were wanting something more from me.
And when we held each other’s hand
How could I know you had a plan
To steal away when there was something more to see?

And this is not all you wanted
But it is all I’ve ever have for you.

Once I tried to surprise you with
A bottle full of angel’s breath,
But you laughed at me when I said it was so.
So I’ll search and I’ll try to find a gift
That’s not common enough to be meaningless.
Will I find it before you say you have to go?

I’m not all that you wanted.
But I’ll keep trying to be more for you.
