This Year Will Be Perfect

I finally found the person I've been looking for.
I've been walking round the earth,
With my head below the ocean,
Always been something there,
Always been scared of devotion,
In my head it's sitting pretty,
While the action is so gritty,
What's the use?
But it took me by surprise,
The sound of your delight,
Lit the world for me,
And I'm containing everything.

I don't know where you came from,
And I don't care where you've been,
Because you're no longer stranger,
And I'm glad that I let you in,
Everybody's got a story,
And I've got them of my own,
We might be haunted by the sounds of our past,
But only if we show them,
This year will be perfect,
I'm hoping to say the least,
Just hold on to these heartstrings,
Take a breath and jump with me.

I was walking through the crowds,
And all I thought about was the days,
We'd joke, we'd laugh, we'd dance and all,
Picnics in the park and we'd drive away,
Every day a new journey,
Every moment a new sound,
More inspiration,
Than just looking up towards the clouds.

You wanted all the world,
And I gave you everything,
My heart was yours,
And whatever you said I would believe,
Nobody wore the relationship,
With a heart upon their sleeve,
The sarcasm was perfect,
And the dreams that we would share,
Made me fall deeper into love,
And the place that you were,
I wanted to be there.

I don't know where you came from,
And I don't care where you've been,
Because you're no longer stranger,
And I'm glad that I let you in,
Everybody's got a story,
And I've got them of my own,
We might be haunted by the sounds of our past,
But only if we show them,
This year will be perfect,
I'm hoping to say the least,
Just hold on to these heartstrings,
Take a breath and jump with me.

Hold on to my hand,
It's long way down,
This will be our year,
No more chasing stars on the ground,
Because I soar amongst the beauty,
That you just supply,
And I hope that it never ends,
Because a person like you is hard to find.
