You Had Me

How you sing,
how you smile,
it all makes me stop and stare for a little while

the way you walk,
way you dress,
oh, you're such a beautiful mess

you don't care
'bout a thing
you just walk,
hold my hand,
I don't think I'll ever understand

there was a lock
on my heart
you broke through it with ease
now you've got me, here on my knees

how you did it, I don't know
it breaks my heart every time you go
I wonder if you see
how much you mean to me

you broke through the lock gracefully,
in one fluid movement,
you had me
