Description: An "I love you so much i get hives" love song.

VERSE:
I turn around
And you're in the doorway
Looking at me
There's nothing that I can
Say to you here or
I'll disappear right in the
light of the day
When you're around me
Everything else goes away

VERSE:
Suddenly
I'm in a bad way
Tragically
I have not a
Clue what to do
But stare like a fool
So I study my shoes
The rest of the world goes away
When I'm around you

CHORUS:
This ain't the way it is
In the movies
I ain't a star of the screen
I ain't a rich man
Ain't got no big plans
Ain't got no limousine

(Again but instrumental)

VERSE:
Eventually
My heart'll slow down
After you leave
After the showdown
What I should have said
Will pop in my head

Naturally
When you're around me rest of the world has to
I can't think straight, the rest of the world has to wait

CHORUS:
This ain't the way it is
In the movies
I ain't a star of the screen
I ain't a rich man
Ain't got no big plans
Ain't got no limousine

All I got is these
Empty hands, babe
And my heart on my sleeve
No claim to fame
Ainít got a brand name
Ainít got no property

VERSE:
Deep breaths
And I figure that someday
We're all gonna die
It'll even out some way
This time around though
I don't think so
Obviously
'Cause when I'm around you
It's like you surround me
And when you're around me
The rest of the world goes away
