The thought is over
You step out to the street
Street light shining down
Casting shadows at our feet
Things that need to be said
Are the words I cannot find
Cannot bring myself to
Empty the weight of my mind

What do you do
When you need to share yourself
When the words you mean to say
Aren't coming out of your mouth

How does it feel
When it tears you up inside
Do you love me back
Do you know that I'm alive
(Do you know that I'm alive)

Baby, I love you is what I've said
Why can't you notice how I feel inside
What if you don't feel the same way
My heart would burst
And I would simply die

We talk as we stroll along
The morning shining veil
She says, "I like your sweater."
I told her, "Structure had a sale."
Are you flirting with me
Are you just being nice
If I could see inside your head
I'd be able to sleep at night

What do you do
When you need to share yourself
When the words you mean to say
Aren't coming out of your mouth

How does it feel
When it tears you up inside
Do you love me back
Do you know that I'm alive
(Do you know that I'm alive)

Baby, I love you is what I've said
Why can't you notice how I feel inside
What if you don't feel the same way
My heart would burst
And I would simply die

And what would you say
If I told you how I feel
You never noticed me before
Why can't this just be real
The things I do just to make you smile
I could talk for hours
Won't you listen for awhile
Listen for a while...

Baby, I love you is what I've said
Why can't you notice how I feel inside
What if you don't feel the same way
My heart would burst
And I would simply die

I WOULD SIMPLY DIE
(Repeat 4x)

I would simply,I would simply, I would simply die
I would simply die...
I would simply die...

    General CommentThis band is made up of former members from The June Spirit and The Early November. They have such a good sound that I just had to share what I thought they were saying. I'm not 100% sure if these lyrics are correct because their site isn't up yet. But anyway SUPPORT FINDING WESTERLY!!!

    General CommentHey, on Kazaa some one had it as Jodie and Renee. So I've been lookin' all over cause this is my favorite song of all time.
    The things I do just to make you smile
    I could talk for hours
    Won't you listen for awhile
    Those relate exactly with my life.
