Staring across the room where you sit,
Tangled in sheets mumbling half spoken words that I can't understand,
And I can't help but question your motives- is something here growing?
Or are we playing pretend?
The look in your eyes can't hide what you're feeling,
But your actions can.

Chorus
And I, I wanna be your light.
The only one in your eyes.
The one that you're kissing goodnight.
And you? A million miles out of reach.
Don't you believe I could be whatever it is that you wanted,
If you wanted me?

You do up your shirt with the buttons all wrong,
But to me it don't matter.
Fixing your hair while you're singing me songs
About happy ever afters.
My heart is melting in puddles, I swear it-
But I don't want it to end,
And as you go on I can't help but to think
That it should be me in those hands.

[Chorus:]

Bridge
I wish you could see me standing here.
I wish every thought would just disappear and vanish.
But I'd stumble and fall if I planned it.
If you opened up your heart just a little bit,
I'd dig up the words I've been burying deep.
We both never sleep, baby.
Sing me to sleep.

Chorus
Cause I, I wanna be your light.
The only one in your eyes.
The one that you're kissing goodnight.
And you? A million miles out of reach.
Don't you believe I could be whatever it is that you wanted,
If you wanted...
If you wanted... (don't you want this?)
If you wanted...

Wish you only wanted me.
