When you eye me, I get so excited
To think that I’m the only one you see.
I can’t help it, if sometimes I get jealous
When we’re alone you belong to me.

We could make love but it’s easier to fake love
It’s just the way I’ve grown accustomed to.
I can’t promise that when we’re done I’ll want this.
I need more time because right now’s much too soon.

And I know it’s not fair to you
I feel at home in a room without a view
And if you go I won’t know what to do.
Because I want to be, close to you.

I can’t keep up, with all these thoughts they creep up
On me and I can’t sleep much, thinking of you
And I’m tired of confusing desire, with things that I admire
And feelings that aren’t true
When I’m not with you, all I do is miss you
Though I try, I can’t deny that this is real.

What’s the future got to do,
With who we are and what we’re going through?
And if you let me, well I could be there for you.
But now you’re the one stuck in a room without a view.

Maybe one day we could start our lives
You and me together wouldn’t that be nice?
Right now what we need is time.
Even though you’re mine, I’ve got to let you go.

I’m scared, so scared, of what this means for us.
Should we keep in touch, or should we be alone?
In the end I want what’s best for you
Even if I’m never next to you again.

Maybe one day long after you’ve gone away,
I’ll be happy too.
A piece of you will be here and the skies will be clear.
We’ll finally have our view.
