    When It Comes To You (Andy Perratt, Ban Banerjee) Verse 1 Life's not been its kindest To my heart over the years, I've closed my doors to emotions And built a wall of steel. Verse 2 I'm afraid I've got no feelings Left for anyone, My life is like a blank page, And happiness has gone. Chorus But, when it comes to you, Everything, yes, everything changes, I see the world anew, Words now written clearly on the pages. I feel a warmth inside I'm happy, I feel pride, I know exactly what to do When it comes to you. Verse 3 I don't get scared of dying, I'm more afraid of life, I feel like I'm in a constant fight Against the tides of time. Verse 4 There's not much that I laugh for, And even less I cry, Sometimes I just want to hide away And watch the world go by. Chorus But, when it comes to you, Everything, yes, everything changes, I see the world anew, Words now written clearly on the pages. I feel a warmth inside I'm happy, I feel pride, I know exactly what to do When it comes to you. Bridge When it comes to you All my doors swing open, And because of you Everything is OK, Now I know I am back And I love you. Chorus Yes, when it comes to you, Everything, yes, everything changes, I see the world anew, Words now written clearly on the pages. I feel a warmth inside I'm happy, I feel pride, I know exactly what to do When it comes to you.
