I don't want to waste an entire album on you
I've been there done that yeah
I don't want to put all the anger you caused me back on you
Though I know I'd be justified but I'm in another place
I don't want to put any negative thoughts into this universe
I've done it enough oh
And I don't want to tell who what when where why and how cause who cares
No nobody cares
But I hope you soon find out how to love
Once upon a time you wanted to learn
I thought I could teach you but you were more afraid than willing
So when it comes don't push it away
One day you will find it is the greatest gift
And I hope you don't take advantage of it again
Hold her when she wants to be held
Don't yell at her when she's only trying to love you oh
Take her to her favorite place more often than not don't take her kindness for weakness cause I'm sure she'll love you a lot
Support her in all that she does
Don't tear her down lift her up
Cause that is the worse thing you can do to someone you love
Put her high on a pedestal and tell her when she looks beautiful
Tell her when she looks beautiful
I used to think that I could not bare you to be with anyone but me
But I've been there done that yeah
And since then I've come to think silly of that whole mentality
Cause I want to find love too though it won't be with you
I wish for everyone to one day find happiness and love
Including you yeah
And I don't want to go into details cause I've said enough
And it's not my intent to hurt you no
But I hope you soon find out how to love
Once upon a time you wanted to learn
I thought I could teach you but you were more afraid than willing
So when it comes don't push it away
One day you will find it is the greatest gift
And I hope you don't take advantage of it again
Hold her when she wants to be held
Don't yell at her when she's only trying to love you oh
Take her to her favorite place more offer than not
Don't take her kindness for weakness cause I'm sure she'll love you a lot
Support her in all that she does
Don't tear her down lift her up
Cause that is the worse thing you can do to someone you love
Put her high on a pedestal and tell her when she looks beautiful
Tell her when she looks beautiful
Tell her when she looks beautiful
Tell her when she looks beautiful
