You say my eyes are the prettiest
that you've seen in a while.
They guide you out of the hole
that you've found yourself fallen into.
I hope you might drown in them
for a little while.
You say they fill you with hope
and something wild.
So take them as invitation to my life.
When I smile and your eyes light up
it gets to me like nothing else has before.
The day we met the rain was falling down
not making sense.
You saw something inside me that was hidden.
It came out and blazed into your arms
safe and warm.
You told me of your dreams.
Said your fingers were nimble enough to catch them
not sure your heart was strong enough to keep them.
Just touching you blinds me
with desire for you wholly.
You light up a spark
I thought died out ages ago.
Yeah, you slow me down with your sweet,
I don't know now what to think,
I don't know what I'm doing
with you in my arms.
But it feels like a home
I've forgotten to return to.
