We agreed I’d be gone by the close of the year,
but I’ll miss you more than what I’ll leave behind.
You tell me no one ever wants to talk with you,
but I use your selfless magic to unwind.

When the demons penetrate my tormented mind,
your wise words make the world feel tender and smooth.
When my brutal past haunts me, and fills me with fear,
your hugs protect me from those who were cruel.

We have so much in common; no one comes close.
Who could love someone like me?
I believe you’re the only one man enough.
If I’m being honest, no man has reached as deep.
We have so much in common; no one comes close.
Could you love someone like me?
I believe you’re the only one tough enough.
Love someone like me and you’ll be loved forever.

You were the last to enter my elite circle,
but the first to reach my sacred energy.
For a touch of your warmth I’d end my icy reign,
but you also fear treating me tenderly.

I’ve set previous lovers sailing to safe ports;
none were brave enough to drop their anchor here.
Our lips have not caressed; our bodies haven’t opened.
My heart tells my mind that you would never fear.

We have so much in common; no one comes close.
Who could love someone like me?
I believe you’re the only one man enough.
If I’m being honest, no man has reached as deep.
We have so much in common; no one comes close.
Could you love someone like me?
I believe you’re the only one tough enough.
Love someone like me and you’ll be loved forever.

Tears of laughter flow more when we are together.
No one’s absence pains my heart as much as yours.
The world feels quiet and peaceful laying with you.
You stop my demons and keep me safe from wars.

Don’t let fear deny us the greatest love offered.
Those other married kings and queens don’t compare.
We are lone wolves in an over connected world;
Our need for solitude mustn’t cause us despair.

We have so much in common; no one comes close.
Who could love someone like me?
I believe you’re the only one man enough.
If I’m being honest, no man has reached as deep.
We have so much in common; no one comes close.
Could you love someone like me?
I believe you’re the only one tough enough.
Love someone like me and you’ll be loved forever.
