  • I stop to catch my breath
    And I stop to catch your eye
    No need to second-guess
    That you've been on my mind
    I dream days away, but that's okay
    It's like I want to hear a silent sound
    And then hold it in my hand
    But a rose won't blossom from a ground
    Of desert sand, but I like to pretend that

    One day I'll turn around
    I'll see your hand reach out
    I'm only fooling myself, oh,
    But maybe when you smile
    It means you'd stay awhile
    Just maybe you'd save me now

    Well, now it's etched in stone
    That I can't survive alone
    You have the missing piece
    That I need so desperately
    Yes, I slip away to a day that'll never come
    It's like a splash of water to my face
    When I suddenly realize
    That you could never find a place
    For me in your eyes, and I don't know why I keep thinking

    One day I'll turn around
    I'll see your hand reach out
    I'm only fooling myself, oh,
    But maybe when you smile
    It means you'd stay awhile
    Just maybe you'd save me now

    It's love in disguise
    I'm lost in your eyes
    I'm lost in your eyes

    One day I'll turn around
    I'll see your hand reach out
    I'm only fooling myself, oh,
    But maybe when you smile
    It means you'd stay awhile
    Just maybe you'd save me now

    Save me now
    Just maybe you'd save me now Writer/s: KATE ELIZABETH VOEGELE

  • Erin from Faulkner, MdI love this song and I LOVE Kate! She has a beautiful voice, a unique sound, and a talent for writing. This song is totally one of the top five on my character mix. But I might make a correction: as "One Tree Hill" is one of my favorite shows, I have to say it's on the CW, not MTV. Love you, Kate Voegele!
  • Jenna from Williamsport, Pai love this song it's great its about her daydreaming about a guy(i can relate to tht)
