Can you shut your eyes and turn away from me
I'm gonna say some things I've never said before
And I'm feeling kind of stupid and I'm feeling kind of shy.
But they're building up inside of me and I have to let you hear them
Cause you never know, the world might end and one of us might die,
Don't be laughin', but I love the way you smile.

Could you maybe close your ears and talk to someone else
While I tell you things I've never said before,
Cause I'm feeling kind of stupid and I'm feeling kind of shy.
That I've not been used to tenderness and I've not been used to being kissed
Or being held for hours at a time, eating pizza and drinking wine.
Oh I love the way you put your hand in mine.

Could you ever reach behind you and turn the music up,
While I say some things I've never said before,
But it's getting easier to tell you more and more.
That I always dreamed of waking up to singing in my ear, in fact I used to dream of Brian Kennedy
Now you don't even sing in tune, but that's alright with me
Cause I have always loved the way you sing to me.
Now I've always been the scary type,
And I've always felt the need to fight,
My words will pierce the skin and make you bleed.
But you light my fires when I get cold,
You buy me back when I get sold
And you've never been afraid to love me,
And I will always love the way you love me,
I will always love the way you love me.

    General CommentIt's all about the awkward start to a relationship, not knowing how to express yourself in the face of love. Beautiful song, so beautifully sung.
