Your eyes are full
Full of the future of us
The air changes as you look across
At me in that wondering way

It is as if
I knew you before we spoke
Do our hearts know something we don't?
Conspiring, converging, without giving us any say

[CHORUS]
You sing me to sleep
Talk down my walls
Look through my windows as I wait
You could be the thief
I give the key to

You're ruining me
With secrets and gestures and looks
With sonnets in second-hand books
Playing the chords in me nobody knew how to play

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE]
It fits in your hand like the water in rain
Unlocks our two different selves
And shows we are the same
Rather than wait 'til I
Put me out for the taking
You're breaking
You're breaking into my heart
And I'm letting you

Your eyes are full
Full of the future of us...
