I see you walk in.
It changes everything,
And I almost fall to the ground.
It's a moment that rushes by so fast,
But the entire world slows down.
Never so petty, so depraved,
Never had a look stop my heart.
I'd give up all my past romances,
If they could tell me where to start.

The blood is rushing through my veins,
It's getting harder to contain
The need to know your name,
The need to touch you.
And as I fumble with these plans,
My face is covered by my hands.
It'd be hard enough to stand,
Let alone smile and face you.

And you know what happens now.
I'm sliding two seats down.
We lock eyes and without a sound ­
I'm shut out, I'm shot down.
Is this the way it's meant to be?

Guess there's no chance
You could see anything
In these downturned eyes across the aisle.
Cause you're the girl
Who's always getting everything
You ever wanted with just that smile.
There's no love, no heart, no strength, no art.
Nothing I value at all in those eyes.
Teased with a glance for a moment,
And that's when my resistance dies.
Let it go!

The blood is rushing through my veins,
It's getting harder to contain
The need to know your name,
The need to touch you.
And as I fumble with these plans,
My face is covered by my hands.
It'd be hard enough to stand,
Let alone smile and face you.
And you know what happens now.
I'm sliding two seats down.
We lock eyes and without a sound -
I'm turned out, I'm shot down.
Is this the way it's meant to be?
