lyrics

I looked away this evenin’ time,
Looked toward a place that’s so sublime,
I sighed my life away, I stared at shades of gray,
‘Til I looked away this evenin’ time.

I wish I was a painter, ‘cuz my words don’t do you justice,
But if a picture’s worth a thousand, then I’ve painted quite a few.
I’ve written books about your beauty, but somehow within the stricture
Of the weight of all those pages, I can’t find the truth of you.

I looked away this evenin’ time.
Looked toward a place that’s so sublime.
I slept in my shyness, I led a life of dryness,
‘Til I danced in the rain this evenin’ time.

And if I was a talker I would hear the words I’m thinking,
I would see my love and sing it and the thought would be the same.
I’d lick my lyrics from your lips, and feel my text upon your fingertips,
And every other rose would smell exactly like your name.

I looked away this evening time.
Looked toward a place that’s so sublime.
I heard you sing so sweetly, in the dark almost completely,
‘Til I opened my eyes this evenin’ time.

I looked away this evenin’ time,
Looked toward a place that’s so sublime,
I sighed my life away, I stared at shades of gray,
‘Til I looked away this evenin’ time.
