ten lyrics – jewel

“ten”

whoever said that love is easy, must has never been in love;
sometimes its a land mine, one wrong step and it blows up;
a word, a look, lights a hidden fuse.

it’s hard to see just what you have, when you’re seeing red;
and it’s easy to do something that you know you both will regret;
better stop, think, count to ten before i leave.

one, i still wanna hate you;
two, three, i still wanna leave;
four, searching for that door;
five, then i look into your eyes;
six, take a deep breathe;
seven, take a step back;
eight, nine, i don’t know why, we even started this fight;
by the time i get to ten, i’m right back in your arms again.

words thrown so callously like weapons when we fight;
but when they cut too deep, i wanna leave it all behind;
that i’ve to count to ten, before i cross that line.

one, i still wanna hate you;
two, three, i still wanna leave;
four, searching for that door;
five, then i look into your eyes;
six, take a deep breathe;
seven, take a step back;
eight, nine, i don’t know why, we even started this fight;
by the time i get to ten, i’m right back in your arms again.

you can lose what you’re not thankful for,
i don’t want that to happen to you and me,
better count my blessings.

one, you still move me;
two, three, you send chills right through me;
four, you keep me wanted more;
five, when i look into your eye;
six, you’re my best friend;
seven, that will never end;
eight, nine, i don’t know why, but thank god it happens every-time;
by the time i get to ten,
by the time i get to ten,
i can see how blessed i’ve been.

i’d chose you all over again…
