"Twenty-One Lines"

I don't believe all of the things I say
All I can do is promise you we're ok
Well we make it up as we go along
A storybook and a lonely song
We'll stay in bed and dream the day away
I like the way you look when you look at me
Peacefully

Say your prayers before you go to bed
Lay down your world, lay down your weary heard
I don't know a whole lot these days
All my plans have gone their ways
I've lost myself but look for you instead
I still don't know what love is but you feel right
Here tonight

I know that I will always believe in you
As for myself, well that's not quite true
I don't know what to say to you
But twenty-one lines is far to few
I had a thought, I guess it slipped away
