Darling I want to make the word "love" new cause it's been said so many times
And I don't want to use that old pick up line
And oft' I try to find the words to use but none capture the way I feel
When I gaze at your smile it seems like I'm out flying a sunset skyline
You've stolen my eyes, I stare at what I can't describe. I guess I tried

Look in my eyes. It's not hard to realize I'm the one who loves you
And though you'll never know my heart, my complete feelings
Just know you'll never be alone

Words keep cluttering in my mind as I persist in this futility
But no vocabulary could ever represent the beauty I see
You're everything and more than I could want you to be
And in your face what do I see?

It's like a rainbow in my mind, like when the daylight starts to die
Just like a landscape catching rain or like a snow glazed mountain face
Like Charlie Chaplain, like clapping one hand, my love can not be heard
And all those love songs, they come out all wrong cause there's just no such word, my Annie

Look in my eyes. It's not hard to realize I'm the one who loves you
And though you'll never know my heart, my full emotion
Just know you'll never be alone, my Annie

    General Commentthis song is awesome and at the same time not that great. the lyrics are the best part [my opinion]. it just says something that happens everyday, not being able to express "love" with any other word, and in the end, just using the word "love" anyway.."I want to make the word "love" new cause it's been said so many times"..and knowing that it just isn't enough, and stuggling to say *something*

    hah, i was just repeating the song. gosh, i guess it's pretty self explanatory
