I stop to catch my breath
And I stop to catch your eye
No need to second-guess
That you've been on my mind
I dream days away, but that's okay

It's like I want to hear a silent sound
And then hold it in my hand
But a rose won't blossom from a ground
Of desert sand, but I like to pretend that

[CHORUS]
One day I'll turn around, I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, oh yeah yeah yeah
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now
I'm only fooling myself yeah yeah yeah
I'm only fooling myself

Well, now it's etched in stone
That I can't survive alone
You have the missing piece
That I need so desperately
Yes, I slip away to a day that'll never come

It's like a splash of water to my face
When I suddenly realize
That you could never find a place
For me in your eyes, and I don't know why I keep thinking

[CHORUS]

It's love in disguise
I'm lost in your eyes
Lost in your eyes

[CHORUS]

    i think that this song has to do with, she's just broken up with her boyfriend and in the back of her head she thinks that he'll come back, but she knows that she's "only fooling herself"

    This song is talking about a girl who is in love with guy, who probably doesn't even realize that she's alive. She pictures that one day they will finally be in love.Every girl has a love that doesn't even know they exist

    Oh, my god, this is my song. She loves him, but there is no chance at all with him, yet she keeps hoping, knowing all along that it is only going to hurt her more, because it will never happen.
