      I’ve found a way to make you
      I’ve found a way
      A way to make you smile.

      I read bad poetry
      Into your machine
      I save your messages
      Just to hear your voice
      You always listen carefully
      To awkward rhymes
      You always say your name
      Like I wouldn’t know it’s you
      At your most beautiful.

      I’ve found a way to make you
      I’ve found a way
      A way to make you smile.

      At my most beautiful
      I count your eyelashes secretly
      With every one, whisper, “I love you”
      I let you sleep
      I know your closed eye watching me
      Listening
      I thought I saw a smile.

      I’ve found a way to make you
      I’ve found a way
      A way to make you smile.
