You may well become my favorite song,
With a beautiful form and a beautiful style.
Your words are enough to make me smile
And enough to make me want to sing along;
I haven’t felt that in a long, long while.
You may well become my favorite page;
So many-colored pictures scattered there.
Pout and giggle, shout and stare:
Challenging the feeble chains of age
With a gentle beauty I am pleased to share.
So often I have been so close to you—
Supposed to do what I’m expected to—
It’s likely you’ll not know this song’s for you.
You may well become my favorite star,
A little bit of heaven in my night.
If I wish I may, I wish I might
Thank you for just being who you are
And for chasing weary shadows from my sight.
Repeat Chorus, then repeat first line of each verse...
And I haven’t felt that in a long, long while.
