"I Saw You" as written by Kerry Shaw, James Neville Topham and Ian Alec Harvey Dench....
you look so happy it fills everyone with dread of the disappointment they can see ahead.
your laughter that you think is so infectious fills them with a panic but they're hoping still,
that all your reckless hopes will not be crushed.
he doesn't try to fathom out your inconsistencies.
it's no wonder you think that he's easily pleased.
he's too scared to tell you of his self-fulfilling prophecies, but marvels instead at your blind trust.
I saw you in your summer dress.
you were sketching out a world that he could only second guess.
your smiles are so intense they only terrify, becoming more unnatural the more you try to show them that this time you have arrived,
or at least for now you're glad to be alive, and all your reckless hopes are justified.
aware of their concern you say they simply cannot bear to see a happiness that more than measures up to theirs,
and he's already wondering if he's missed a trick somewhere, but thinking everyone has doubts at first.
I saw you in your summer dress.
you were sketching out a world that he could only second gues.
he can't help feeling flattered by your strange intensity, so he hides dissatisfactions,
he is curious to see how anyone could want him so incredibly completely and he knows he is not worthy of your trust.
I saw you in your summer dress.
you were sketching out a world that he could only second guess.
I saw you with your hand on the glass that couldn't summon up a future for you when you asked.
