    Lyrics:
    You walked into the room and now my heart has been stolen
    You took me back in time to when I was unbroken
    Now you're all I want
    And I knew it from the very first moment
    'Cause a light came on when I heard that song and I want you to sing it again
    I swear that every word you sing, you wrote them for me
    Like it was a private show, but I know you never saw me
    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there to sing it again?
    Could I be the one you talk about in all your stories
    Can I be him?
    I heard there was somone but I know he don't deserve you
    If you were mine I'd never let anyone hurt you, no, no
    I wanna dry those tears, kiss those lips
    It's all that I've been thinking about
    'Cause a light came on when I heard that song and I want you to sing it again
    I swear that every word you sing, you wrote them for me
    Like it was a private show, but I know you never saw me
    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there to sing it again
    Could I be the one you talk about in all your stories?
    Can I be the one
    Can I be the one
    Can I be the one
    Oh, can I, can I be him?
    Won't you sing it again?
    Oh, when you sing it again
    Can I be him?
    Oh, sing it again, yeah
    Oh, when you sing it again
    Can I be him?
    I swear that every word you sing, you wrote them for me
    Like it was a private show, but I know you never saw me
    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there, will you be there?
    Can I be the one you talk about in all your stories
    Can I be him
    Can I be him
    Can I be him
    Can I be him?

    I fell in love with my best friend but she's in love with her boyfriend, and I'm so happy for her...But this hurts even more because I got to know her, she finally realized it but it wasn't a fairy tale ending. Now I've lost her, even as a friend and love just is a cruel mistress...

    You walked into the room
    And now my heart has been stolen
    You took me back in time to when I was unbroken
    Now you're all I want
    And I knew it from the very first moment
    Cause a light came on when I heard that song
    And I want you to sing it again
    [Chorus]
    I swear that every word you sing
    You wrote them for me
    Like it was a private show
    But I know you never saw me
    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there to sing it again
    Could I be the one you talk about in all your stories
    Can I be him
    [Verse 2]
    I heard there was somone but I know he don't deserve you
    If you were mine I'd never let anyone hurt you
    I wanna dry those tears, kiss those lips
    It's all that I've been thinking about
    Cause a light came on when I heard that song
    And I want you to sing it again
    [Chorus]
    I swear that every word you sing

    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there to sing it again
    Could I be the one you talk about in all your stories
    [Bridge]
    Can I be the one
    Can I be the one
    Can I be the one
    Oh, can I, can I be him
    Won't you sing it again
    Oh, when you sing it again
    Can I be him
    Won't you sing it again
    Oh, when you sing it again
    Can I be him
    [Chorus]
    I swear that every word you sing
    You wrote them for me
    Like it was a private show
    But I know you never saw me
    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there, will you be there
    Can I be the one you talk about in all your stories
    Can I be him
    Can I be him
    Can I be him
    Can I be him
