lyrics

The two of us make an impossible sum
Add us together and we don't add up
But maybe for once we just want to be loved
And that's enough

Maybe you make me happy
And that's all I want to be

They say that we shouldn't set ourselves up
We're asking for trouble and we've had enough
Neither of us has been lucky in love
Yeah, we've had it rough

But maybe you make me happy
And that's all I want to be

They can't see the forest through the trees
But I'm happy now
With your branches wrapped around me
As far as I can tell, you're happy here with me
And that's all we need
Who cares what anybody thinks?

'Cause baby, you make me happy
And that's all I want to be
Baby, you make me happy
And that's all I want to be
Maybe you make me happy
And that's good enough for me

You and I make an impossible sum
