lyrics

You may think that you don't deserve it.
I don’t deserve a lot of things, but I thank god for ‘em, and I’m good to ‘em.
So I'll say it again, ‘cause I don’t think you heard it:
No, you don’t have to choose, and I don’t care what you think you have to lose.

'Cause right now you need some lovin',
oh it's the slowpokes need the lovin'.

I'm gonna comfort you up, comfort you right up.
I can do it with words, or I can let you be heard.
Honey, you decide.
Honey, you decide.
Honey, you decide.

Don't feel bad if maybe you like it
and worry you'll get used to it, and then look up and find it gone.
I may get mad and you may deserve it,
about a month from now, or maybe it won't be that long.

And you can't do a thing about it,
so right now don't think about it.

I'm gonna comfort you up, comfort you right up.
I can take you out, or take you in for a little while.
Honey, you decide.
Honey, you decide.
Honey, you decide.

This could all be for naught, the landscape could change, I could move away.
It could be me that needs comfort some day.
I’m not so good at this; you may not even notice it.
It’s not such a clear-cut debt to repay.

I can make you laugh not fakely, live awakely.
I’ll gladly turn my head towards you.
And all your dumb mistakes are forgiven.
I see that as a part of you; I swear I could never be bored by you.

'Cause you're a lovely person, dammit.
And you can't do a thing about it!

I'm gonna comfort you up, comfort you right up.
I can do it with words, or I can let you be heard.
Honey, you decide.
Honey, you decide.
Honey, you decide.
