Your deep brown eyes have woven a snare
I’m captured by your biscuit hair
But you can’t give just one care
To my legs, running, running after you

I see what you have inside
I reached out, you only shied
away, and I cried
when I realized how much I loved you.

I can’t let you go, I already know
I want to see much more of you.
I see the kindness in your eyes, so how is it surprise
That the crush I had has infectiously grew

You know how hopeless I am at love.
I cannot flirt, I poke and shove
You act like a startled dove
And just fly away, away

How do I show you how I feel?
This love, this pain, it doesn’t seem real
Your ignorance just makes me blue
I’ll have to settle for watching you
