I'M SEARCHING FOR THE WORDS TO WRITE
IF I DON'T FIND SOMETHING I REALLY LIKE
I'LL ERASE EACH LINE AND I'LL JUST SING YOUR NAME
I DROWN MY INSECURITIES
WITH A BOTTLE FULL OF MEMORIES
AS I TALK TO YOU INSIDE A PICTURE FRAME

CAUSE I JUST THOUGHT I SAW YOU ON MY TELEVISION SCREEN
THERE'S NO CHANNEL I CAN CHANGE TO FILL THESE SPACES IN BETWEEN

AND IF I WAS FINE RIGHT NOW
THEN DARLIN' I'D TELL YOU HOW
YOU LOVED ME SO COMPLETELY
OUT OF SIGHT AND OUT OF MIND
AND IF I WAS FINE RIGHT NOW
THEN I'D SIMPLY SHOW YOU HOW
MY HEART IS IN RETREAT
FROM THE ENEMY THAT I DID NOT MIND
EXCUSE ME, BUT I HAVE TO CLOSE MY EYES
YOUR BEAUTY MIGHT JUST MAKE ME BLIND

IF ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR
THEN WHAT ARE WE STILL FIGHTING FOR
I'LL TAKE WHAT'S MINE, IF YOU TAKE WHAT'S YOURS, OKAY
I CALLED YOU BUT, BUT I COULDN'T LEAVE
"I LOVE YOU" ON YOUR DAMN MACHINE
WE DON'T TALK, YOU SEE, SO I GUESS WE WERE PLAYING FOR KEEPS

I JUST THOUGHT I SAW YOU ON THE CORNER OF 16TH
I CAN'T HELP BUT SEE YOUR FACE ON EVERY STRANGER THAT I MEET

I JUST THOUGHT I PASSED YOU, MAYBE, WALKING DOWN MY STREET
I CAN'T HELP BUT SEE YOUR FACE, NO, I CAN'T HELP BUT SEE YOUR FACE
