Look at me, do you see anything you want?
I do, when I look at you
Three words unheard
A verse that I should say to you
But there’s just no use

Cause I’m shy around the edges
‘Til I know what I should mention
And my thoughts are still on catchin’ up
to leave my mouth
I’m thinking I should wait
But it’s getting kinda late
And I sure would really hate to leave
the same old way tonight

(bridge)
And I want you,
And I need you,
And I don’t think I could leave with this in mind
So oh this time
Mentally I'll count to three
and then I'll speak it, hopefully
The product of my mutter will be somthing that no other has said
But, oh instead
I’ll say the wrong words
And you’ll move onward
Cause I’m a coward
I don’t know how to work this out

(chorus)
But I’ll save it for later
Cause I’m a terrible moderator
On what’s happenin’
I don’t know where to begin
I’ll save it for later
‘Til I get a little more creative
Cause just sayin’ it, won’t make it right

So look at me, do you see
That everything you want is here?
But it’s far from near
And I'm a little more redundant then I ever could have thought I--
Then I ever could have thought that I'm a little more redundant tonight,
and I deny that I had ever really tried to give a three-word-line to you

(bridge)
(chorus)

ooh tonight
ooh tonight
Well I tonight, deny that I
Had never really tried
To get a three word line to you

    General Commentwhat?! no comment? for me, it's a guy who wants to say i love you to someone he loves but can't seem to get the courage to say it. hmm.. same with lifehouse's hanging by a moment?
