Say it with a glance

May 10, 2020

I like your name
The way it rolls off my tongue
I like your eyes 
They warm me like morning sun
Your laugh stays with me long after the joke
You’re a lung full of air in a room full of smoke

And that just makes me want to hold on to you
For as long as it’s possible to
I like it best when you’re whispering near
Whatever you say is what I want to hear

But…

Tell me you’d like to hold my hand
Tell me you like the way that we dance
Don’t bother with words
Say it with a glance

Don’t bother with words
Say it with a glance

Oh lord, I like the way you sway
I’m locked in and I can’t look away
Oh yes I like the way you feel
Like Chrismas morning, just before the reveal

We can dance until the lights turn on
Into the night, drifting to dawn
You can tell me I was in your dream
You can tell me what you think it means

Or…

Tell me you’d like to hold my hand
Tell me you like the way that we dance
Don’t bother with words
Say it with a glance

There’s really no end
To what I like about you
Annoying my friends
Talking all about you
They’ve seen a change in me
I’m not like how I used to be

I used to run away
From the way that I feel
Until I realized
I was only standing still

So now I’m choosing
To believe this is real
Tell me do you feel it too
Or say that you will

Tell me you’d like to hold my hand
Tell me you like the way that we dance
Don’t bother with words
Say it with a glance
