Things that could've been
If you only looked this way
If you only heard me say

I never tried to make a scene
Just think of all I gave as
you watch it wash away

All my life I feel it getting faster
Cuts right through me like I'm alabaster
Oh, I've tried to get away

And you say to me, It's me girl
Tried to get away from me girl
But I hold you back here
Black eyes are never dry

My vision's in the way
And all it does it provocate
Deadly feelings, I desire

Black eyes are never dry
Like going through elliptical,
Round, rampant and physical

All my life my lungs were getting colder
Time was strong but I was getting older
Oh, I've tried to get away

It's love that I want,
And It's my heart you flaunt
