Every word I say, I mean it
Every single day, I feel it
But sometimes when you talk
It's obvious you want to show it
So don't blow it
Tell me what we got, tell me it's a lot
Tell me it's the real thing
Tell me not to change and always be the same
Tell me that's a good thing, it's a good thing
Tell me not to lie, tell me not to wait
Tell me that you want the same things as me
Tell me that it's fate driving me insane
Tell me it's the real thing
That keeps me hangin' on
I can read the signs between us
I feel it inside when you come nearer
There's a stillness in the air
Like no one else is there
And every moment stays in the moment, yeah
Sometimes it hurts to watch you leave
It feels like you're taking a part of me with you
I never know how it'll be
I guess it's just a mystery
But is it the real thing
(That keeps me hangin' on)
(CHORUS TO END)
