We started off across a room
locking eyes and subtle clues
Connection then devotion grew
closer than our mothers knew.

It's hard to fill the middle in
What triggered Cause to the Effect
Suddenly you exited

With a subtle look we would communicate
Now all the words we saved return to curse your name
With a subtle look

I'm jumping off this moving ground
needing just to levitate
I'm landing now, forgetting how
Your gravity ruins everything

You fill my head and weigh it down
My clouded heavy vision sees
your arms, once mine, now wrapped around
a different boy who looks like me

With a subtle look we would communicate.
Now all the words we saved return to curse your name
With a subtle look we would communicate
Now all the words we saved return to curse your name
With a subtle look

    General CommentWhy does no one comment on Now It's Overhead? They are such a great band. They have great songs and beautiful lyrics. "I'm landing now forgetting how. Your gravity ruins everything" Great stuff....
