All I want is a quiet simple life,
but for you, the calm will simply not suffice.
You want the flames of a fire I can't abide
in every step; every sigh; every blink of an eye.

All I want is good memories with friends,
but you aren't happy without a problem to mend.
You want to be the hero with your chivalry to lend,
throwing yourself bravely straight into the deep end.

All I want and need and love is you,
but you get distracted - and you don't have a clue
how it hurts me. Don't deny it when you know so well it's true;
so now it's time to stop. Start afresh. Start anew.

Please don't be upset - you'll always be the one,
but to cage a free bird like you would simply be wrong.
