lyrics

I never knew that you were s’posed to say I love you.
I never knew that you were s’posed to really care.
What’s wrong my dear? Why you still here?

Is it fear keeps you here tonight beside me.
Is it pain that drains the soul from under you?
Vixen be gone. Stayed way too long
 or maybe...
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.

All those times you came to find me drunk and willing.
Not a shilling paid for one mere afterthought.

Why can’t you see, us could be we?


Well perhaps you put a potion on my table.
Barely able just to break on past those eyes.

To my surprise, I don’t despise 
that maybe...
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.

Can’t you see that we can never be?
We’re too far apart.

Love was void from the deal. We were doomed from the start.
Yet you’re stuck in my thoughts. Fought the battle in vain cause it’s plain.
Just a tease! Meant to please! Just a floozy who was in it for the fun.

In my dreams, now it seems.
You’ve somehow snaked your way and now it’s done.


I’ve tried to fight this feeling that I never knew would come,

Tried to see you when I’d need you just a dame under my thumb.

But now you’re stuck in my thoughts, weighin’ heavy on my mind.
Never thought you’d bend my knees, send hot shivers down my spine.
But now I do. All thanks to you.

‘Cause I’m growing to stand the sight,
although I try so hard to fight it,
That I might just be excited,
slightly scared not quite delighted.

Cause you’re stuck in my thoughts, fought the battle in vain, cause it’s plain.
I’m growing to stand the sight of,
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.
