I saw you walk
You know you say
Like a ghost you know to me babe
Come back boots make you look slick
Oh now I see you walk home from school
You got so lost on the way
You got me feeling like a kid
But this man is no kid you know
So I'm not goin pull your hair

I fall so hard inside the idea of you
That's why with you can't say what I mean
Wanna to stay but I think I'm gettin outta here
I fall so hard inside the idea of you

Aw there you go again
Oh I don't know
And I see you walk past with your friends
Aw and I saw you laugh and whisper
And I I'll talk I want you here
But you turn back and smile at me
Aw you got me feeling ok with that
So I'm not goin pull your hair

I fall so hard inside the idea of you
That's why with you can't say what I mean
Wanna to stay but I think I'm gettin outta here
I fall so hard inside the idea of you

Bus stop dreamer
The late night
You with me
There's something moving
You can't stop, saying that you love me
You love me, you love me
Enough, enough you make me shy
But baby, I wake up

I saw you

I fall so hard inside the idea of you
That's why with you can't say what I mean
Wanna to stay but I think I'm gettin outta here
I fall so hard inside the idea of you

Oh it's so go on baby say it

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

We're laughin

    I think about this girl who is engaged to my best friend... And i know she loves me as do i her... But the love is forbidden... And i would give anything to tell her how i feel, but worry about the reppricussions. "i fall so hard inside the idea of you" i get tongue tied and and can't tell her what i mean "that's why with you i can't say what i mean" and i know ultimately that it's best i just get the fuq outta there "wanna stay but i think god get me outta here" the love is a beautiful love and that is expressed with the awesome music attached... It's a great love song that's sad but upbeat... A plea to the gods masked in the dissonant chordes, melodies, and lyrics of dave matthews... A true jem... And i love how the lyrics change over time... Only making the pearl more perfect. Jms
