lyrics

Sometimes she smiles when she reads
She enchants me
And I wish I could be that book that holds her so
Our world is always moving
I’m always waiting
But our journey takes me places she won’t go

I’m a person who switches confidence for fear
At the sight of a risk that might be worth rejection
So I sit in silence
With my headphones at my ears
And I permit the view to be lost to her reflection

And I hope she doesn’t see me staring
I wish that I could stop this staring
But she looks so amazing when the sun bathes in her eyes
And if I had a lack of patience
I could, maybe, spark a conversation
But I forgot my confidence
And she gets off in Nottingham…

One time she smiled straight at me
I was singing
And she could tell I couldn’t tell that she could hear
And if I ever had a chance
To speak to her
It was then, but I just watched it disappear

Now I sing louder
And a little more clear
But it’s no use she never hears in my direction
So I’ll wait for her
To realise I’m here
Until I’ll just get lost in her reflection

And I hope she doesn’t see me staring
I wish that I could stop this staring
But she looks so amazing when the sun bathes in her eyes
And if I had a lack of patience
I could, maybe, spark a conversation
But I forgot my confidence
And she gets off in Nottingham…

The view’s always the same
Running far too fast to frame
So that means I can’t be blamed for my focus
But if she noticed I’d be hard pressed to explain

And I hope she doesn’t see me staring
I wish that I could stop this staring
But she looks so amazing when the sun bathes in her eyes
And if I had a lack of patience
I’d have maybe, sparked a conversation
But I forgot my confidence
And she got off in Nottingham…
