Where I sit, I dream for days
Tracing your name in the carpet
I miss the things they took away
I beg you, help me not forget

Why can't you be here now?
Can't you see I breathe for you?
Love, my love, don't lose me
My paper flower, through and through

With you, I'd hide forever at last
If you wanted me to love you,
All you had to do was ask

The distorted kiss of the frequencies
Such a beautiful noise
So out of step, so lost, so sweet
Its just the smile of your voice

Why can't you be here now?
Can't you see I breathe for you?
Love, my love, don't lose me
My paper flower, through and through

Stop stop stop before you claim me crazy
Nothing real should make sense anyways
With you, I'd hide forever at last
If you wanted me to love you,
All you had to do was ask

Can't you see I breathe for you?

    General CommentI think that this song asks us to just make a move, because the person who you have feelings for might like you too.

    Throughout the entire song he expresses how much
    he likes her and how he wishes she had told him sooner, so that he wouldnt have to "hide forever."

    I like the line:
    Nothing real should make sense anyways.

    Its just more magical/phenomenal when its a mystery, when you just can't control it, but it controls you.
