I see you nearly everyday.
I see you, but you don't see me.
I wish I had something clever to say.
And I wish I had something better I could be.

We touched hands by the coffee machine the other day.
I know you've forgotten already,
But I'm gonna take that moment to the grave.
To the grave.

Cuz I just wanna walk you home.
I just wanna walk you home.
Oh, yea.

I see you nearly every night.
I see you when you're down in your house.
With my night vision binoculars
I creep quiet as a mouse.

And I get jealous when I see you stroking his hair.
But it's okay, I tell myself 'cause I know
It's only I'm not there.
I'm not there.

Cuz I just wanna walk you home.
I just wanna walk you home.
Well I just need some time alone.
I just need some time alone.

I'm the boy who watches the phone.
I'm the boy who eats lunch on his own.
I'm the boy with the monotone.
I'm the boy who still lives at home.

I'm the boy with the ironed shirt.
I'm the boy who watches you work.
I know where you keep your skirts.
I know where your secrets lurk.

I'm the boy that's calling your house.
I'm the boy that's freaking you out.
With my thermal flask of tea.
Up there in your neighbor's tree.

I'm the boy that's crossing borders.
I'm the boy with social disorders.
I'm the boy with restraining orders.
I'm the boy, yeah.

Cuz I just wanna walk you home.
I just wanna walk you home.
And I know that's it not right to creep.
But I just wanna watch you sleep alone.

Cuz I just wanna walk you home.
I just wanna walk you home.

    The song is from the point of view of this socially strange guy, who has an obsessive infatuation with a girl he knows. He loves her so much, but its truly in an innocent way. But because he has a social disorder, he doesn't express his love like a normal person would, and comes off as a creeper. It is rather sad when you think about it.

    Really want to meet this girl and go on a date, but i think she's dating a guy. I'm not very popular, but i don't care.

    Creeping on a girl that he really likes and creeping like a boss at that. Like he knows where her skirts are, that's boss.

    He's not watching a girl. He's watching another boy. That's why he says "i know where you keep your skirts. " the boy he's watching likes to dress up as a girl in his room when he thinks no one is watching... Little does he know...

    He has a mad crush on this girl & can't get her out of his head. She is the only thing he sees to distract him from his sad, pathetic life. She is something he wants, but can never have. It's safe for him to watch her and wish for her from a distance. His thoughts are irrational when he fantasizes about her which may lead to him one day acting on his crazy fantasy of watching her "sleep alone". If this happens, she will be dead & he will have crossed the line.
