lyrics

I’ve been turning these words over in my mouth
Writing them down, trying them out

Pretending that they’re mine already,

Making pacts with cupid

What If I spoil it by saying something stupid?



Spent but never wasted
A summer picking brains

We spent the summer catching trains

I can’t explain it and make it sound lucid,

Instead I’ll spoil it by saying something stupid...



A thousand words,

In my head

Three words to put to bed

Drowning in the overflow

I only wanted you to know....



You make me feel

Like home’s a person, not a place

You make me feel

Like life's a journey, not a race

I’m tongue tied, tired and blue

and the only thing I see is true

Is that I only feel like me when I’m with you...

Grass stains and sunburnt shoulders
Candy apples as the bonfire smoulders
When you went home I couldn’t place how I felt
Now there’s a part of me that lives somewhere else



A thousand words,

In my head

Three words to put to bed

Drowning in the overflow

I only wanted you to know....



You make me feel

Like home’s a person, not a place

You make me feel

Like life's a journey, not a race

I’m tongue tied, tired and blue

and the only thing I see is true

Is that I only feel like me when I’m with you...

(you make me feel) - repeated

I had plans y’know before you came and intruded
Now all I think about, now all I think about is saying something stupid...


I just wanna be inside your arms.. x 2

You make me feel

Like home’s a person, not a place

You make me feel

Like life's a journey, not a race

I’m tongue tied, tired and blue

and the only thing I see is true

Is that I only feel like me when I’m with you...
When I’m with you...
