*I Want*


 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


I want you to want me for who I am

And for you I'll do the same

I want to make you shine brighter then a gem

So you understand I don't want to play this mind game


I want a chance to make you forget your past

I give you my word I won't break your heart

I want us to build something special that'll last

Promise if I agree to be good friends 

Nothing will tare us apart


This is the next to hardest thing to do 

The way I actually feel

Nobody ever really knew

My heart the guys always steal

The next day you talk to them about me 

They'd say "who"

It's like my feelings weren't a big deal

I wish no more of being down and blue

It is taking me so long to heal


God could it really be

That this time I found the perfect one

I guess we will both will have to wait and see

Your heart I hope I won
