lyrics

I keep talking to myself when I should be talking to you
like I’m supposed to,
but these words won’t do what they’re supposed to,
so I guess I’ll show you.

A feeling so strange,
I’m not ready to change for you or anyone.
And if you’re willing to listen,
I’ll tell you what you want to hear;
You were right, I was wrong.
You were right all along.

Talk to me, say what you mean.
I’ll tell you what you mean to me.
I’ll tell you things you won’t believe is true,
like how the sun shines in your eyes
and I fall for them every time - it’s true.
I’ve already found you, I tried to tell you

Blame it on terrible timing.
Focus on the silver lining.
In the end, the sun is shining a light in your eyes.
The same eyes that shine in moonlight,
so let’s just stare at the sky.

I still pass the pavement where we wrote our names in 2009,
it’s engraved in my mind.
That night in October,
the last time I saw you sober.
It was a sight to be seen.

And if you’re willing to listen,
I’ll tell you what you want to hear;
You were right, I was wrong.

Talk to me, say what you mean.
I’ll tell you what you mean to me.
I’ll tell you things you won’t believe is true,
like how the sun shines in your eyes
and I fall for them every time - it’s true.
I’ve already found you, I tried to tell you

Don’t get me wrong,
If you get me at all, it’d be too soon,
cos I can’t look you in the eyes
and tell you what I feel inside - it’s true.
I’ve already found you, I tried to tell you.
