Lyrics: You give me something by James Morrison


Part 1 - Tony

You want to stay with me in the morning

You only hold me when I sleep,

I was meant to tread the water

Now I've gotten in too deep,

For every piece of me that wants you

Another piece backs away

He was in deep shit. Really really deep shit this time. Of course, he'd been told this before. His math teacher in high school, his father, Gibbs, Kate, Abby even McGee had told him so a few times. Everyone had once told Anthony DiNozzo how much trouble he'd gotten himself into. Okay, maybe not real trouble. Like in life threatening. But still, emotional and social trouble may be a better definition. He groaned and kept channel surfing. He couldn't concentrate on any show tonight. He's mind were somewhere else. Or more exactly, with someone else. Kate. That's why he was in trouble this time. Recently, he'd busted himself of having very strange thoughts about her. Very strange images had popped up in his head. Not strange for being him, but strange for being about Kate. He kept saying to himself that he was just being silly. How would someone like Kate fall for him? They were two completely different people. But he couldn't help it. He wanted her. Not just in that way. No, he wanted to be there for her, protect her and just…enjoy the feeling of having her in his arms. And there was this problem…how could he trust himself that he wouldn't hurt her? Because ruining things between him and Kate would be like digging your own grave. Gibbs would kill him.

'Cause you give me something

That makes me scared, alright,

This could be nothing

But I'm willing to give it a try,

Please give me something

'Cause someday I might know my heart.

He wanted to try. But knowing himself and knowing Kate, how the hell would that happen? They were like night and day. They rarely talked about things like these. Serious things. They teased each other about their dates and love lives but never talked sincerely like two adults. In Gibbs eyes, Tony was certain they were teenagers. At the same time as this feeling him made him extremely content, he felt scared. He could never afford to screw things up with Kate. She was his closest friend. Even if he would never admit that out loud. And getting together with your friend, it was just as bad as they said on TV. But still, his mind tried to find a reason for stopping all these rational thoughts and just go for it.

You already waited up for hours

Just to spend a little time alone with me,

And I can say I've never bought you flowers

I can't work out what the mean,

I never thought that I'd love someone,

That was someone else's dream.

This really sucked. First, he didn't deserve her. Not as his girlfriend. Someone good enough to put up with him, was too good for him. But that's what drew him to Kate. He'd been physically attracted to her almost since she started working with them. He couldn't deny it, she was good looking. But then, when she'd stayed with him in isolation, he realized the emotional fondness he had for Kate. He knew he shouldn't. For two reasons, Gibbs would kill him and he didn't deserve her. Yeah, sure. He was a gentleman and bought her flowers once. But he'd gone through her PDA for the number so it didn't count. But Tony DiNozzo couldn't help it. He'd fallen in love. With a woman. Not a girl, which he usually "dated". Kate was probably the dream of many men. Doctors, lawyers. Men who deserved her.

'Cause you give me something

That makes me scared, alright,

This could be nothing

But I'm willing to give it a try,

Please give me something,

'Cause someday I might call you from my heart,

But it might me a second too late,

And the words I could never say

Gonna come out anyway.

But. He. Still. Couldn't. Help. It. There was something with Kate, he couldn't pin point what, but something! It both scared him and made him just want to have her all to himself. Some days, he thought it was just his imagination but the next day he almost wondered if Kate flirted back with him. Although it was on the hard days that Tony was certain that he loved her, more than anything. Hard days when they were involved in shootings and put themselves in danger. In those moments, he wanted to grab Kate and make sure that she was safe. The moment when he'd realised that he would give his life for her, he knew he was in so deep trouble. The fact that he, Tony DiNozzo, wanted to say the words I love you, to someone and mean it, meant a lot. It meant that he was in so deep shit. Finally he shut off the TV to go to bed. Maybe he could sort things out tomorrow. Maybe he got the guts to talk to Kate. Maybe…

'Cause you give me something

That makes me scared, alright,

This could be nothing

But I'm willing to give it a try,

Please give me something,

'Cause you give me something

That makes me scared, alright,

This could be nothing

But I'm willing to give it a try,

Please give me something

'Cause someday I might know my heart.

Know my heart, know my heart, know my heart
