I hide myself away
Waiting to be found
But nobody knows I'm here
I won't put things right
By keeping out of sight
That much must be clear

I dream and want but I don't try
I just long and long for those dark eyes
Someone I can almost feel
And my life sleeps away
Away as I wait
To gaze into them
Like it's just going to happen

I've a heart that needs a home
But more needs to be done
I'm acting like life somehow owes me
I can't just trust in fate
Let shyness win and wait
Wait for the world to come to me

I dream and want but I don't try
I just long and long for those dark eyes
Someone I can almost feel
And my life slips away
Away as I wait
To gaze into them
Like it's just going to happen

As if she's just going to knock on my door
As if she's just going to knock on my door

Someone I know
Nothing about
Who has a name
Who's doing something
Right now

I dream and want but I don't try
I just long and long for those dark eyes
Someone I can almost feel
And my life sleeps away
Away as I wait
To gaze into them
Like it's just going to happen
