Verse (intro x2)

It's been a long, long time since I've memorized your face
It's been four hours now since I've wandered through your place
And when I sleep on your couch I feel very safe
And when you bring the blankets I cover up my face

Chorus (same as intro)

I do, love you
I do, love you

Intro

Verse

And when you play guitar I listen to the strings buzz
The metal vibrates underneath your fingers
And when you crochet I feel mesmerized and proud
And I'll say I love you, but saying it out loud is hard

So I won't say it at all
And I won't stay very long
But you are the life I needed all along
I think of you as my brother, although that sounds dumb
