In the morning light she laid there in the grass She was till dressed in her white homecoming gown I helped her back to her room She was cold against my shoulder I tried not to wake her up as I laid her down Then I sat there and watched her sleep for a while I've admired her for so long from far away If I could hold her in my arms, then maybe she could love me, If I could only find the words that I want to say
Sullen like a dream that I once had Made me feel scared and lonely She'll never know how she got back What her eyes had shown me And I close the door and walk away I close the door and walk away... But I want to stay...
The leaves below my feet crumbled at my steps And the sun has risen higher than it was before I step into my car and I drive for a while I can't stand the same scenery anymore
I stop along the bridge, and I close my earthly eyes And I wonder what this world can offer me Cars they move below me and I seem to realize, and I look Up at the sky and call her name.
