It's her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away,
and the feeling that I'm falling further in love
makes me shiver but in a good way.
All the times I have sat and stared, as she thought fully thumbs through her hair.
And she purses her lips, bats her eyes and she plays with me, sitting there slack jawed and nothing to say.

'Cause I love her with all that I am,
and my voice shakes along with my hands.
'Cause she's all that I see, and she's all that I need, and I'm out of my league once again.

It's a masterful melody,
when she calls out my name to me.
As the world spins around her she laughs rolls her eyes and I feel like I'm falling but it's no surprise.

'Cause I love her with all that I am,
and my voice shakes along with my hands.
'Cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea, but I rather be here than on land.
Yes, she's all that I see, and she's all that I need, and I'm out of my league once again.

It's her hair and her eyes today
that just simply take me away,
and the feeling that I'm falling further in love
makes me shiver but in a good way.
All the times I have sat and stared, as she thought fully thumbs through her hair.
As she purses her lips, bats her eyes and she plays with me, sitting there slack jawed and nothing to say.

'Cause I love her with all that I am,
and my voice shakes along with my hands.
'Cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea, but I rather be here than on land.
Yes, she's all that I see, and she's all that I need, and I'm out of my league once again.

    General CommentOk... but no... in all seriousness... this song may be one of the best love songs ever written. it's so simple... but so beautiful. I love the line "It's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea, but I'd rather be here than on land" The lead singer has such a wonderful voice and the piano only adds to the genuinity of the song. Much love, peace out.

    General CommentAww thanks emo12punk12metal. I am, i really am, but u know that.
    Anyways, i just wanted to say that this song means so much to me. Because I feel that if I loved a girl, this is the what i would be around her about her. For example: just talking about her would make my voice and my hands shake. I love this song.

    General Commentjust downloaded this song and i love it. I had "On My Way" a while ago but i never found anything else by stephen speaks and when i recently saw that the lyrics were posted here i decided to try again. This was the only other song i could find though. Does anyone know anything about this band. From the two songs i've heard so far they are amazing.

    General Commentwow, this song. i dont feel like i can say something that would correctly explain the way the song makes me feel. i think that above all, i hope that one day a boy will feel this way about me. that sounds soo cheesy, but common gurls, who doesnt want a guy who is so truely in love with someone especially in this world of fake ppl.

    General CommentStephen Speaks is a band from Tulsa, OK. They are a christian act, and they dont seem to play too many shows because two of their members go to Abilene Christian University, one is a Medical School student at OU and another is a pastor in his thirties, so I think that they might have some scheduling conflicts with touring. they have a website...I cant post it here, but seach somewhere for Stephen Speaks...it SHOULD be the first entry.

    As far as this song goes, its not necessarily the lyrics or the music itself, but its the fact that this song captures the heart of love. It captures the earnestness of the feeling and the way falling in love and being in love is. It is a portrait of a Christ-based romance that is not self seeking, but fulfilling and that will lead to forever.

    General CommentSo last night at Starbucks I saw "Ripper" (one of the singers) play. I jumped up to buy this wonderul CD and have to say that this is my favorite so far. I should be so lucky to be one of the 6 people (not related to him) see the show last night :-P
