We were best friends but now that age has come to an end If she won't choose then we'll decide who is the better man Anna-Rose, sweet Anna-Rose please If you can't decide then let us know That he who has the heart of a man Will be the one to earn her hand Where there is love there is an equal pain It's not enough to be your friend, pretend that there is nothing more It's not the way that it should be All our lives we've been so close, all this time We were best friends but now that age has come to an end Let war begin, who is the better man I am (No, I am)
Can't get it off my mind that loaded smile in her eyes (The target locked in her sights, but was it his or is it mine) I caught her eyes (but I'm the one that made them shine) She will be mine (I’m gonna make her mine) All my life, all our lives I held you close (you never knew) That I have always been more than a friend I've always been more than a friend When we were kids, we would scrape our knees and play for hours in the street (Well I was there and held her hand, when she was dumped by her first boyfriend) She captured me (but I’m the one that set her free) She will be mine (I’m gonna make her mine) She knows my heart She knows my head, my heart and everything I have Some have high hopes but all I know is Anna-Rose
I am in love with a certain kind of man There's no win or lose Don't say I have to choose Sometimes the feelings are too strong There are two of a certain kind The one that pays no mind To the worries of the world But to the needs of a girl I’m the one to love you from my heart (But I'm the man to open up my heart) This is no war it's romantic rivalry If you really want me Come to the valley game Call my name Sit down beside me Hold my hand and we'll see This is our story, two decades led to this But the story isn’t done, there’s no conclusion The characters are caught in confusion, woah (Who will she choose)
A death in the family, overdosed and laying flat We're dressed in our funeral blacks thinking over the past and how we let him down again I shoot a glance to my brother and your sister sitting on your left The pain shoots under the skin and over again as I see you crying We can put this girl aside and wake up family Wake up, wake up We communicate silently, staring over the casket I see the shake of your hands and a sorrowful glance as we bury a best friend And we remember each other as brothers, time moves by so fast Her arms lay over my back, on top of your hand, she embraces both of us We can put this girl aside and wake up family The brothers we used to be Wake up, wake up
 This could change everything
[how could I choose between the two I love both you] I could never choose to be apart from you
I saw you riding through downtown on your motorbike But when I stepped out with a wave you didn’t see me, you just looked forward I got on my bike and I rode to you Oh, Anna-Rose I swear I’m gonna marry you But then the turn I swerved, I slid, I lost control, hit the bank and flew If you only knew, I was meant for only you The church bells ring for our love (I was late that day) He's the better man (And I’ll never show) Keep your eyes open (I’m sorry love) Good hearts keep hoping Everybody always said “don’t let yourself give in” But I’m a loser with a win if I can’t call you friend We are wound 'til the end I'm with Jesse, she's my girl But she doesn't make my head twirl No, not like you did
