Oh so the words have been said
The feeling's old but it's new to me
I guess I'm scared to death but
Oh I just love you Oh I just love you

Telling my friends, "I gotta go"
That I need rest
bit I'm running for the phone
I think Casey knows but
Oh I just love you Oh I just love you

A watch now on my wrist, a collard shirt
and hair clean cut sculpted
I'll iron out the flaws
come meet your new in-laws
oh here's the awkward pause

When I look at you,
I've caught myself off-guard a time or two
Those funny times I realize that I've been staring
way too long and you're done talking
not to mention I've stopped breathing

I'm such a mess
Rushing to open your car door
You lean and open mine
before I can turn the key and
Oh I just love you Oh I just love you

Calling to say hi on your break
In less than twenty words you made
my whole damn day and
Oh I just love you Oh I just love you

In the coffee shop you sipped
your drink and we all sat and talked
My mind it wandered off alone
to find a thought as beauty
poured out when you talked

Stand still in my sight, a switch got hit
somewhere back in my mind
Just then I realized there what I have
to do, because I couldn't stand to look
at you across another crowded room
and know that you would not be mine

Time drags its feet
but somehow you sneak it past me
Night after night
At this rate if you stay with me
I'll go to bed at twenty-three
and wake up sixty-five
Well next to you that would be
just fine, that'd be just fine

    General Commenttucanwarrior... you're an idiot.

    i was at that show and he turned to the rest of the band (four guys) and said "...well next to these four guys that'd be just fine..."

    sorry to say, but everyone likes to convince themselves things like that happened... i bet you think he kept making eye contact with you too... rubbish. tsk tsk.

    General CommentOh man.
    When I listen to this song it reminds me why they're my favorite band. :)

    I love everything about this song. I like that it doesn't really have that many metaphors and symbols. He's so in love and this song seems like he's blurting it out. Like he hasn't had very much time rehearsing it.

    Haha, aww. Especially when he yells " OH, I just love you. "

    He doesn't even know how to put it into words.

    General CommentI agree with stuckatsea. This song is like a stream of conciousness. It's like the feeling is so overwhelming he can't even put it into words so he just settles for explaining all the little silly things that make his heart beat extra fast, that make him feel like he can do anything, that make him fall in love with her everytime he looks at her.
