lyrics

When the sight of you comes into view
I can't focus my eyes freeze up into
Their sockets and all I wish to do
Is stand right here and take in all of you

You're so gorgeous so unmistakable
So beautiful and unforgettable
I forget that these words are malleable
As I stutter it's all regrettable

I can't believe this is what you do
Sneak on me and whisper something cruel
In my ear I hear you breath in through
Your lips your throat deep inside of you

Tell me what you thought you saw outside
I'd like to hear what it is you try to hide
Is it really that bright inside
You squint your eyes your smiles hard to describe

And when you look the other way
I catch my breath I've spoke enough today
Don't want to make you regret you came

And when you turn the other way
I'll stand still won't move an inch today
Just in case you forget why you came

I'm so glad you came back here again
It seems like days, months, years and
Centuries since I last held your hand

Let's go out we can hear the wind blow
Shakes the trees watch as the limbs bow
We can sit here at the steps you know

And when you look the other way
I catch my breath I've spoke enough today
Don't want to make you regret you came

And when you turn the other way
I'll stand still won't move an inch today
Just in case you forget why you came
