See how people jump on the dance floor at the sound of their favourite music
Even if for just some few seconds or minutes
They can put the world’s burden behind them and dance to their heart’s content
And just like that, I want to be able to jump into your presence
Or just a thought of you
And then be reminded of how happiness feels like
Like music, I want to be happier in your presence

I want to be able to run into your arms
Engulf myself with your presence like you are music
Because like music, you’ll always be here for me as I am for you
I want a love like music

When it’s almost deadline for an assignment and I don’t even know where to begin
My brain is running multiple searches for possible solutions to no avail
Like music, I hope you can be a good distraction
Maybe you can use your sweet voice
Or your beautiful, mature speeches could do the trick
I want to be able to run to you when I have to run from me
I hope your arms will be welcoming as fast as my legs can run

I want to be able to run into your arms
Engulf myself with your presence like you are music
Because like music, you’ll always be here for me as I am for you
I want a love like music

When the goal is to go for an hour long jog
It wouldn’t be advisable to go alone
But with some music as company, I can surely meet my goal
With you by my side, I hope to do it effortlessly
Not because I want to impress you
But because your presence motivates me
I want to be more productive in your presence than I’ve ever been anywhere else

I want to be able to run into your arms
Engulf myself with your presence like you are music
Because like music, you’ll always be here for me as I am for you
I want a love like music

I hope I am not asking for too much
I hope I am able to do same or more as you would need
Most importantly
I hope we are prepared when the days we’ll each need music’s help to distract us from the other person’s deeds comes
