words fall out of my mouth
and i can’t seem to trace what i’m saying
everybody wants your time
i’m just dreaming out loud,
i can’t have you for mine and i know it
i just wanna watch you shine.
tripping up on my tongue,
it’s all over my face and i’m racing
gotta get away from you
burning all the way home,
try to put it to bed but it chases
every little thing i do
when the light falls on your face,
don’t let it change you
when the stars get in your eyes,
don’t let them blind you.
just the way you are
and i love it all
every line, and every scar
and i wish that i could make you see
this is where you ought to be,
come down to me.
spell it out in a song,
bet you never catch on to my weakness
i’m singing every word for you.
here i’m thinking i’m sly
then you’re catching my eye, and just maybe
you’re thinking what i’m thinking too
when you see it on my face,
don’t let it shake you
i know better than to try and
take you with me.
