New love, health scares, pop music.

Lyrics: 

I can't believe you still remember
All those messages we sent
All those days of back and forth
The energy we spent
I can't believe you still remember
That day beside the river
Those days of unspoken vows
Every promise now delivered

I want you for my whole life
Not just a part of it
Not just a part of each day
Not just a few of my years
I want you for my whole life
So you have to stick around
You have to take care of you
I want you for my whole life

I can't believe you still want me
All my emotional mess
All my paranoid fear
All my weakness
I can't believe you still wanted this
When we thought our friends were enemies
When you saw your world fall down
When I forgot you in my self-pity

I want you for my whole life
Not just a part of it
Not just a part of each day
Not just a few of my years
I want you for my whole life
So you have to stick around
You have to take care of you
I want you for my whole life

And I knew what I was getting into
But I can't think about losing you
I can't think about it, not for a minute
I knew what I was getting into
But baby I only just found you
And I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't
I can't think about it

I want you for my whole life
Not just a part of it
Not just a part of each day
Not just a few of my years
I want you for my whole life
So you have to stick around
You have to take care of you
I want you for my whole life

it is amazing how your subtle guitar arrangement supports such a big song. most wh ohave the abilityto compose a song this musically broad ,,,laura nyro. tori amos. carole king for example......write on the piano, so in my head i am hearing these big piano swells as your song opens up and unfolds.

There's a nice mix of vulnerability as well as sweet sentiments in this. Pretty vocal. Memorable chorus. Good stuff!
