lyrics

I told you that I want to be a better man to please you,
And you said I don’t have to work that hard.
The best of love I’ve found is just to feel the way she sees you.
And know that she will always pardon you.

I used to kiss you with my eyes half closed, so I could see the way
You see me with your eyes closed all the way.
And when I close my eyes now, there’s a tiny slit left open,
And I get a glimpse of what you see today:

I see my shadow getting darker every day.
You painted me a portrait; then you made me feel like Dorian Gray.
You say that love’s denial, and I’ll pretend to agree.
But love is like a mirror… and god you make me hate what I see.

You told me in the morning, when you’d step into the sunlight,
You’d close your eyes… and say my name.
Holding you was one thing that I knew I’d always get right;
Don’t see how I’ll ever feel the same.

In your eyes, desert sun that never goes and hides behind the clouds anymore.
And the shadows getting longer and the sun is getting higher
And I’m crackling in this fire as the flames are getting stronger
If I face it then I’ll burn but when turn around

I see my shadow getting blacker everyday.
You painted my portrait, then you made me feel like Dorian Gray,
You say that love’s denial and I’ll pretend to agree,
But love is like a mirror… and god you make me see my shadow.
