Lyrics:

Late at night sometimes while dreamin I can feel you next to me.
My conscience out the window, I realize what I am starting to see.
You and I by the window, watchin the clouds and birds go by.
We're playin songs on the jukeboxes in the bars where the pool tables lean. But you were smiling at me.

We shared the same pack of smokes and we drank the same kind of beer.
The bottles were never empty and our minds were never clear.
We talked about the future b ut we could never get past
the thought that what we had was the best and that you and I were gonna last.

All I ever wanted was you in my life.
All I ever wanted was someone to keep my monsters away at night.
No prey tonight.

Cross my heart hope to die with my arms around you.
Good night, sleep tight, don't let my words bite you. Bite you.

When I woke the bed was empty but I could tell that you;d been there.
The bottles all were empty and I found one of your hairs.
The little things remind more than all the songs I write.
They've got a way of piercing just that spot that I keep out of sight.

All I ever wanted was you in my life.
All I ever wanted was someone to keep my monsters away at night.
No prey tonight. Well alright.

Cross my heart hope to die with my arms around you. x4

All I ever wanted x3
wanted x2
was you x4
