Lyrics: 'How did I fall in love with you' by Backstreet Boys


//Remember when

We never needed each other

The best of friends

Like sister and brother

We understood

We’d never be alone //

Xander Harris sat on the uncomfortable hospital chair, praying from the bottom of his soul, praying for the petite red head lying on the bed next to him, lying unconscious.

Xander and Willow. Willow and Xander. That’s the way it had always been, the two of them together, he couldn’t imagine his life without her, he didn’t want her to leave him alone.

//Those days are gone

Now I want you so much

The night is long

And I need your touch

Don’t know what to say

Never meant to feel this way

Don’t wanna be alone tonight //

Sure he had Giles as a friend, he had Oz as a friend, he had Buffy as a friend, he had Cordy as... as his girlfriend, yeah that was it; his girlfriend, and he loved her, sure he did; but did he love her enough? And he had Willow, his Willow, the one person in all the world who he trusted with his secrets, his fantasies, Yeah he admitted to himself I’d trust the Willster with my life.

//What can I do to make you mine

Falling so hard, so fast this time

What did I say, what did you do

How did I fall in love with you //

Xander lent forward and held his best friend’s hand tightly. He couldn’t lose her, she’d always been there for him, she was the one who comforted him every time something went wrong. He’d already lost Jesse, he couldn’t lose Will as well.

//I wanna say this right

And it has to be tonight

Just need you to know

I don’t wanna live this lie

I don’t wanna say goodbye

With you I wanna spend the rest of my life //

“Come on Will... Look, you don’t have a choice here. You gotta wake up. I need you Will. How am I gonna pass trig? Who am I gonna call every night to talk ‘bout what we did all day? You’re my best friend... You’ve always... I love you.”

//I hear your voice

And I start to tremble

Brings back the child

That I resemble

I cannot pretend

That we can still be friends

Don’t wanna be alone tonight //

“Oz? Oz?”

Oz, her boyfriend, walked into the room.

“I’m here baby”

Xander left the room quietly, thanking God for bringing back the most precious person in the world back to him, well not back to him exactly, but she was there for him once again, and he’d always be there for her.

//What can I do to make you mine

Falling so hard, so fast this time

What did I say, what did you do

How did I fall in love with you //

Xander had no idea what he was going to do now, he’d always loved Willow, just never realised how much he loved Willow. He didn’t want to lose what he had with Cordy, what Willow had with Oz, but he didn’t want to lose Willow, he wanted more of her.
