This Is What It Takes Lyrics

I watch your troubled eyes as you rest
And I fall in love with every breath

    to me, this song is basically his way of saying “I’m here for you no matter what.” I mean “I’ll break down these walls that are in our way” and “you don’t have to do this on your own.” , “so cmon take my hand, we’re moving on.” tells me that no matter what, he’s gonna help me through this. (this song helped me w my first major break up so)
