  • I broke into your house last night
    And left a note at your bedside
    I'm far too shy to speak to you at school
    You leave me numb and I'm not sure why

    I find it easier to sit and stare
    Than push my limbs out towards you right there
    My heart is bursting in your perfect eyes
    As blue as oceans and as pure as skies

    I struggle for the words and then give up
    My heads up with the birds on the t-hut
    A little piece of mind that I know better
    That the plain disgrace of all my letters

    After that the floodgates opened up
    And I fell in love with everyone I saw
    Please take your time I'm not in any rush
    And it's in everything I ever write

    It's not as if I need the extra weight
    Confused enough by life so thanks a lot
    Lonely written words for company
    Just raise the roof this once and follow me
