Crack the Shutters

Charted: 43
  • You cool your bed-warm hands down
    On the broken radiator,
    And when you laid them freezing on me,
    I mumble can you wake me later.
    But I don't really want you to stop,
    And you know it so it doesn't stop you,
    And run your hands from my neck to my chest.

    [Chorus]
    Crack the shutters open wide I want to bathe you in the light of day,
    And just watch you as the rays tangle up around your face and body.
    I could sit for hours finding new ways to be awed each minute,
    Cause the daylight seems to want you just as much as I want you.

    It's been minutes it's been days.
    It's been all I will remember,
    Happy lost in your hair
    And the cold side of the pillow.
    Your hills and valleys,
    Are mapped by my intrepid fingers,
    And in a naked slumber, I dream of this again.

    [Chorus:Repeat x2] Writer/s: GARY LIGHTBODY, JONATHAN GRAHAM QUINN, NATHAN CONNOLLY, PAUL WILSON, TOM SIMPSON
