'Til the day that I die

You would keep the compliments I throw ya

But you're so full of sh*t, uh
               Bm
Tell me it's a bit, oh

Say you wanna quit, don't be stupid

I don't think I could love you more

Might not be long, but, baby, I

 I knew you in another life
                               Em
You had that same look in your eyes
                            A
I love you, don't act so surprised
