I'll Try to Stick Around

It's those deep, blue eyes
That pull me in
They're like the skies
Grab me from within

And that smooth blonde hair
That you refuse to style
It's perfect, I swear
Brings me another smile

As you brush past me
I can feel my cheeks
Fill up with heat
I don't know if I can wait another week

I see the sky in your eyes
Liquid gold as your crown
I can't take the flawlessness
I'll break down

It's the ring to your voice
The glow to your skin
What do I do
When I'm stuck

Staring at your grin

It's your quick, fast pace
Your intelligent mind
I can't follow your grace
I'm far behind

It's your number of talents
Your athletic gift
I can't even count
I'm not that swift

I see the sky in your eyes
Liquid gold as your crown
I can't take the flawlessness
I'll break down

It's the ring to your voice
The glow to your skin
What do I do
When I'm stuck

Staring at your grin

The sky's in your eyes
Liquid gold is your crown
I can try and take the perfectness
I'll try to stick around

There's a song in your voice
The light of your skin
What will I do
When I'm stuck

Staring at your grin

What will I do

Oh, staring at your grin

For the record, it's not creepy, and, as a guy, if presented right, art like this could mean so much. Is he ever going to hear it?

Haha. Before realizing these were song lyrics (it says in the url, apparently), I was going to tell you that these would make excellent song lyrics! However, my comment remains the same. Good lyrics.

Thank you! (: And no, sadly not. After confessing my love to him (haha x) ), he kind of rejected me. ): Oh well! Thank you so much for the feedback!
