Graham Colton – Telescope lyrics

Up here alone in this room
Watching you come into view
Off in the distance where I want you to stay
Can't get you out of my mind
I'm tired of passing the time
I've got your picture and all I can do is try to look away

You're in my telescope
You don't wanna get too close
It's easy to stay where you feel safe
You circle around at night and shine like a satellite
It's easier when you're far away

You disappear in the crowd
I scream but don't make a sound
I never know when you might come back again
So close but don't let me in
You still get under my skin: and it's showing
And all I can do is try to look away


I'm a fool for every move
For coming back to you
I'm a fool afraid of love

You're in a telescope
You don't wanna get too close
It's easy to stay where you feel safe
