I saw you for the first time August 6th of ’09. The night you took my breath away.
Oh tell me what I have to say, to get you to look my way, Oh wont you look my way?

Im standing all alone now, wishing I could go down praying just to see her face
I’d practice every single word to say, every single second of the day, second of the day.

Each day I’d scale the staircase, wondering If I dare face,well tell me what am I to say?
You’re only standing thirty feet away. Breathe in, I swear I’ll be okay..I'll be okay..

It was that night I saw your green eyes, Staring deep into mine Praying just to know your name. I saw your face, oh God Im feeling faint. I heard your voice I’ve never felt the same, I’ve never felt the same..

Your voice was shy as you whispered, “Im gonna leave and never come back...” While my lips they quietly quivered, a sentence I thought you’d reject

I said, “You’ve got the eyes of an angel, stars align to the curves of your lips...I’ve never seen anything quite as beautiful Or anyone as imperfectly perfect…”

So that night as I made my departure, I cast my heart by that golden oak tree and as I passed the cement by your window, I heard it cracking right under my feet…

And I prayed to God that you’d meet someone who cared for you as much as me…
But for now I just hope that you’re listening. and that you hear every word that I speak…
Can you hear every word that I speak?
Oh God, please hear every word that I speak..to thee.
