Lyrics
Verse 1:
Open my eyes and look around
Woke up in bed I was sleeping sound
I didn’t know I was never going to go, oh
Get outta bed and go downstairs
Singing my songs like no one cares
I’m so in love, Ain’t nobody bring me down
Won’t bring me down and
I won’t ever look back
Remember that


Hook:
Every time I’m with you it just feels right
And every time I’m not, my body don’t feel right
I’m so in love with you, You know I’ll always do
I’ll do it all for you no matter what it takes.
Now you see that I’m the last one standing
I proved myself and now my heart’s demanding
I gotta find my place, I gotta win this race.
I’ll do it all for you no matter what it takes

Verse 2:
Come wake me up this can’t be true
I’ve always thought too good to be true
But being here with you is just too unreal
Just too unreal and
I will never look back
Remember that

Hook:
Every time I’m with you it just feels right
And every time I’m not, my body don’t feel right
I’m so in love with you, You know I’ll always do
I’ll do it all for you no matter what it takes.
Now you see that I’m the last one standing
I proved myself and now my heart’s demanding
I gotta find my place, I gotta win this race.
I’ll do it all for you no matter what it takes


Bridge:
And even though I’m scared to death,
I won’t throw this dream away
Your love has always been enough,
Always been there everyday.

really good voice!
Although the lyrics of this song is old-school ballad, you have a distinctly contemporary sound. Your vocal styling and arrangement really transforms this otherwise typical ballad into an interesting romantic pop song. I've listened to your other songs in the past and I have also noted that you have diminished the digital effects on your voice and the true colors of your lovely voice comes out more vividly. I think you are vocally gifted, and it shows in the manner that you have approached this song.

Very good job!
