Her voice flows like music
And her face like the sun
Squinting to take in as much of its beauty that I can handle

I tell myself don't forget to breathe
and force my lungs to take in air

Would he wait up
all night for a glimpse of her
and climb above the trees as
long as she'd always remember him

And I would do anything for one second with her
and one second would do
everything for me
But for now I'll observe from a distance the girl
that words are too meek to portray
Take in the captivating beauty that never ceases to
steal my breath or drop my heart
from my throat to the floor

Would he wait up
all night for a glimpse of her
and climb above the trees as
long as she'd always remember him

But I know I'm invisible in her eyes
And maybe if I just played it off as a dream
things could be better than they seem

Would he wait up
all night for a glimpse of her
and climb above the trees as
long as she'd always remember him

    General CommentThis song is so good. I can't believe no one has commented, although I think I got this song from MP3.com way back when so Overlook is probably kind of obscure these days. Great song, self-explanatory about a guy who loves a girl/has a crush on a girl and she doesn't notice him or reciprocate. These guys remind me a bit of Saves the Day. :)

    General CommentOops. I forgot to add that you forgot the last stanza of the song, which I interpreted as:

    Would he succumb to...
    his love was about to bleed
    Crying out her name
    I would in a heartbeat.

    But I'm not sure about the first & second lines...
