Confessions 03:15
I must confess to you Like a young man should I knew the day we met That my heart would be good Enough to win your heart He never stood a chance So I wrapped up all my love Waited for you to come back When you come back to me back to me oh I must confess to you About a little child She came along one day And made us so proud We never planned on it But our love was true So I made a pact that day To make our one love two When you come back to me back to me oh And another confession is coming out of me Just like the last one Another girl makes three We both agreed to make our family grow Like that our house Went from 3 to four When you come back to me back to me oh So I’ll hold you close Kiss your cheeks at night Keep you warm Squeeze you oh so tight Lock the cold outside the door Hold you up and be the man you like The man you like When you come back to me back to me oh
