lyrics

I'd been afraid of love for nearly most my life
And I never knew if I'd find a wife
I guess my own set of fears always kept me
Just at arms length
And I swore to myself I would not repeat
What the previous men in my family tree did
When they cut off our branch to graft it to
Soemthing that never could be

But there you were
With a beauty and grace that made my poor heart stir
You made me rethink my entire life
I just want to have you right here by my side
Oh here you are, oh Mia Stella, my beautiful star
I love all you are, it's true
I don't know what you see in me
But I'm glad you do

I'd understand if your dad don't like me much
'Cause I've got no money or career as such
But what I've got is my heart and my word
And I give them to you
If you can understand my need to write and sing
I can scratch out a living somehow eventually
From these haphazard songs of mine
I began to refine
When I finally found my muse

But there you were
With a beauty and grace that made my poor heart stir
You made me rethink my entire life
I just want to have you right here by my side
Oh here you are, oh Mia Stella, my beautiful star
I love all you are, it's true
I don't know what you see in me
But I'm glad you do

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared
But this time I think that my poor heart just might
Finally be prepared
When love comes through
There truly is no place to hide
Along that lawless border
That forms when two hearts first collide

But there you were
With a beauty and grace that made my poor heart stir
You made me rethink my entire life
I just want to have you right here by my side
Oh here you are, oh Mia Stella, my beautiful star
I love all you are, it's true
I don't know what you see in me
But I'm glad you do
