The song is one we’ve known for years, and though The words may come from you, I am the one Who knows them all by heart. Your fingers dance On vinyl strings, and my blood pumps in time With every strum. How long did we see eye To eye, and breath a single pair of lungs? A shar’d eternity within a glance, Kaleidoscoping moments into one. You knew, by then, how much in love I was; And still you held my gaze, across the room, As though we did not sleep in sep’rate beds And always would. And still I let myself Believe one day you’d look at me and see Things of which I never could be worthy.
