To Want Is To Can

On a foggy night that was when we met
dances here and there, different faces all around
It started though he never wanted it to
I gave him a chance because i wanted to

He helped me, a lot of things i achieved
I trusted him because he's all i've got
He loved me how much i don't know
I loved him because i wanted to
