I'm not wrong, I'm just an asshole

Falling in Love 3: Closer

Let's not get our ideas out of children's books.
When we catch each other when we stumble
When we paw each other late at night
And hold each other in the morning
Let's call it love.

Let's call it love when I make you coffee.
When you wait outside my hospital room,
And then make yourself busy
Opening windows and fluffing pillows
And ignoring the elephant in the room.

When you order me what you think is my favorite beer,
When I kiss you the way I think you like.

Turning our scarred backs to the world,
Or clasped together in amplexus,
Maybe this thing we have made
Deserves the name.
