Debbie Gibson — Ode To A Would Be Lover lyrics

Lay your head down by my side
Look that way just one more time
And promise me... nothing
I know time isn't ours to keep
But that doesn't mean I can't watch you sleep
Listen to the strength of silence

There's a sweet sensibility
And darling that is enough for me
I know you are taken
But, do I get to you just a little bit
I know I'm as close as I'm gonna get
And though my heart is close to breaking

Oh if you're any kind of man at all
You know the woman I am
So darling don't be afraid I won't break plans you've made
I will be just a friend

Flowers grow in the month of May
And they brighten my every day
You're here for me now and I'm laughing
And though I crave your soulful kiss
I can deal with it as it is
Two tall ships passing


I don't doubt for a moments time
The heart's not a mirror of the mind
But think it through anyway
And if you wake up a lonely child
And want to escape for a little while
Come to me and we'll dance out in the rain
Friend or lover we can dance out in the rain

If I said I'm in love with you
Tell me what then would you do?
