Lyrics

Do You

Written By: Mailani Makainai

I know you love me
baby, I'll always love you
but I know deep inside we can never
ever be together.

Even though its easier said than done,
even though I'll always be the one
that gets you twisted, honey you act like you missed it.

When you say goodbye
I still can let you go
Although I do not cry
I secretly wished you'd show
still there's one thing I gotta know
is Do You?

Chorus:
Hear my name whenever you hear hers?
Taste my skin when the sunset burns?
Feel my hair blowing in the wind?
Can you still hear my voice every time I sing?

Cause I don't wanna say goodbye
I don't wanna see you cry
I just wanted to be the one for you and you the one for me
na na na na na na...

V2
And she shouldn't have to make pretend
She shouldn't have to feel threatened
She should know I let you go
and everything that happened happend a long time ago.

She should know I set you free
ooooh honey I let you be yea.
She should know you're in love with her and not me.

Chorus:
But when we say goodbye, I still can let you go.
I swear that I don't cry, I won't ever let it show.
Still there's one thing I gotta know

is Do You?

Hear my name whenever you hear hers?
Taste my skin when the sunset burns? Feel my hair blowing in the wind? Can you still hear my voice everytime I sing?

Cause I don't wanna say goodbye,
I don't wanna see you cry,
I just wanted to be the one for you, and you the one for me.

nanananana....
