The way your hair swings over your eyes
The motor in my head turns
Wanting you for such a long time
In my mind, a hard lesson to learn

Do do do do do do do do
You'll never know I'm after you
Do do do do do do do do
You'll never know

And you smell like
How angels ought to smell
And you look like
You're ready to go

So hold my hand
I'll take you everywhere
Anywhere
You wanna go

The way your words keep me in line
I know what I'm here for
Waking up to the green of your eyes
It's something I'll get used to, oh!

Do do do do do do do do
You'll never know I'm after you
Do do do do do do do do
You'll never know

And you smell like
How angels ought to smell
And you look like
You're ready to go

So hold my hand
I'll take you everywhere
Anywhere
You wanna go

So come on and hold my hand
(Hold my hand)
I'll take you everywhere (Everywhere)
Anywhere
I'll take you anywhere
You wanna go

The way your hair swings over your eyes
The way your words keep me in line
I'm telling you for the very last time
You better know

And you smell like,
How angels ought to smell
And you look like
You're ready to go

So hold my hand
I'll take you everywhere
Anywhere
You wanna go

So come on and hold my hand
(Hold my hand)
I'll take you everywhere (Everywhere)
Anywhere
You wanna go

Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do

So come on and hold my hand (Hold my hand)
I'll take you everywhere (Everywhere)
Anywhere
You wanna go

So come on and hold my hand
(Hold my hand)
I'll take you everywhere (Everywhere)
Anywhere
You wanna go

    General CommentIt is "green of your eyes." And it IS "In my mind, a hard lesson to learn."

    A brief analysis by even an amateur comes to the conclusion that the speaker has fallen madly for some girl, and it's on the brink of telling her again and again, but not in a direct way. She doesn't seem to be getting it, and he's overflowing with emotion, wanting her to know.

    He promises her everything, anything. He wants to be with her. Typical, but awesome.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the end of the first part is actually "In my mind, a hard lesson to learn". Really great song though.

    General Commentit is soo simple to understand, yet so addicting...

    i think the piano balances out the cheese a bit, and makes it easier to digest...

    General Commenti love this song, but the first time i heard it i thought it sounded a bit like a stalker... you know, in the 'you'll never know i'm after you' bit.... but maybe that's just my own perverse view :) XXX
