I see your face across the room with those eyes
You stare me down and take away every little lie
I'm tripping down a hall and ten miles tall and hidden in a haze
You remind me of the moments when I wandered through the days
I'm perfectly aware of how we seem to other minds
But I collapse within the sound your body makes when next to mine
They will think and they will talk and they will say the words they know
But what they know, what do they know about us anyhow?

And there's a living feeling fired up and it's calling me away
And if I stay then will you stay and if I share it will you cave?
There is a light along the winter's breath it shatters me like ice
And I am careful not to touch you for all fear of every price
But that's just what I want to do I want to fall in love with you
But I'm not sure if it's so just and I'm not sure if it's so true
And if somehow I'd train my skin to keep itself from fear
Then I would do it just to do it just to do it for you, dear

There's a fistful of allowance where the finger-touchings lay
And every day when I arrive I never know just what to say
Your eyes are jewels in a white sea and you're looking into mine
But I'm still floating on my raft and I'm still drowning in your time
I have a twisting to be careful and to keep us from ourselves
And from the shadows where we follow all the captives on the shelves
And if I had to choose a silhouette to pull me from the night
It would surely be the one you have there hiding from the light

I have a dream that you are near me nearly every single night
Where I can hold you and protect the things that make our bond so tight
Can you imagine what we'd be if we could have ourselves as one
I think we'd stay so sharp and claim a tiny spark inside the sun
Can you imagine what we'd be if we could have ourselves as one
I think we'd stay so sharp and claim a tiny spark inside the sun

    General CommentI saw her across the room,
    I had to get a better view,
    She eyed me like I was fire,
    And I saw something to aspire to.
