              In pitch perfect Ben was robbed. Then he popped off in DEH and got his Tony and now he has literally the prettiest album out possible and a bomb Netflix show. THIS MAN IS AN ACTUAL ANGEL LIKE WE DO NOT DESERVE HIM

                                                                Some drinks and then a rose
                                                                Then plans to meet again
                                                                He wrote her poems, songs, and prose
                                                                She knew that he'd propose
                                                                She only wondered when
                                                                One night, before they went to bed
                                                                He kneeled on both knees
                                                                And this is what he said
                                                                I may not be wise

                                                                But look in my eyes
                                                                And know I'll always stay
                                                                And I won't run away
                                                                I won't run away
                                                                Some years went by, they had a child
                                                                He was funny, strange, and mild
                                                                Their love for him ran deep
                                                                Some nights, his dreams would drive him wild
                                                                So into bed, she piled
                                                                To help him fall asleep
                                                                One night, he couldn't get to bed
                                                                So she kneeled on both knees
                                                                And this is what she said
                                                                I may not be wise

                                                                But look in my eyes
                                                                And know I'll always stay
                                                                And I won't run away
                                                                I won't run away
                                                                You say it's safer on your own
                                                                You'd rather sleep alone
                                                                Than grow to need me there
                                                                But I hope now you can see
                                                                What my mom and dad showed me
                                                                I'm not going anywhere

                                                                To love is not to leave
                                                                So hear me when I say

                                                                But look in my eyes
                                                                And know I'll always stay
