  • You say you're coming over
    Is it okay you're coming over?
    I hear keys fumbling
    I hear words stumbling
    I can't help but think it's cute

    When you say that you're nervous
    You look away when you're nervous
    Hands digging deep in your pockets
    Heart taking off like a rocket
    Moving your eyes to your shoes

    You don't have to say that you want me
    With anything but your eyes
    I can tell that you need me
    By the quiet in your smile
    And the way that you wait
    To kiss me goodnight
    I hear everything, everything you can't say

    You say that I'm crazy
    That it's making you crazy too, mmm
    How you can't get me off of your mind
    And you say that it's getting kinda late
    Should be getting out of here
    But you hesitate and I'm gonna take it as a sign

    You don't have to say that you want me
    With anything but your eyes
    I can tell that you need me
    By the quiet in your smile
    And the way that you wait
    To kiss me goodnight
    I hear everything, everything you can't say

    Something 'bout tonight
    Something 'bout your lips
    Something 'bout the touch of your fingertips
    Something 'bout the way you're pulling me closer

    You don't have to say that you want me
    With anything but your eyes
    I can tell that you need me
    By the quiet in your smile
    And the way that you wait
    To kiss me goodnight
    I hear everything, everything you can't
    I hear everything, everything you can't say
    You can't say Writer/s: Barry George Dean, Jimmy Robbins, Racheal Lynn Woodward
