lyrics

I know I barely know you
We've only said hello
And this, some silent greeting
I thought I saw you throw

I know I'm rather quiet
Whenever you're around
I choke on all my words
I hardly make a sound

I know I must seem silly
Just staring at my feet
In some dim and dusty corner
Where I'm swaying to the beat

I know it's kinda crazy
The way you make me feel
Turning shades of grey to color
You make the common so surreal

Yes I know you barely know me
So there's no way that you could tell
That you were summoned from my dreams
You're a wish called down a well

And I know that you may doubt me
When I say that you're the one
I've been waiting all my life for
And now it's only just begun

But I know you might not want me
All the ways I'm wanting you
So I try to shut such thoughts out
And I pray this isn't true

Because I know that in your absence
The hole that would remain
Would swallow me completely
How could you make me feel such pain?

And I know I seem dramatic
But you've really no idea
Of how bleak it'd be without you
Of how dark the night would seem

Yes I know there's nothing colder
Than somewhere without your fire
And without the breath you bring me
I would hastily expire

And yet the hearth I thought your heart was
I mustn't on its warmth depend
And the air that I've been breathing
I shouldn't think I'll ne'er expend

Because I know this song I'm singing
Doesn't mean a goddamn thing
For if you love me then you love me
And if you don't, you don't - the end
