I see you sitting there
I wondered where you came from
I walked over and felt so dumb
You looked up at me and I had no words to say
I looked away and heard the word hey
I turned and said hey back
I felt like I was having a heart attack

Chorus
You was the one wearing a light blue sweatshirt
It had the name of where your from on
You told me what you want and then you'll be gone
I realised your just a tourist
Tourist
Tourist

I only knew you for a few years
I had a few beers to get rid of the tears
For only a short amount of time, my heart became yours
And I'd love to come with you on your tours
But I know you wouldn't stay in one place
You treat it like a race
You think to far ahead
You say that you care

Chorus
You was the one wearing a light blue sweatshirt
It had the name of where your from on
You told me what you want and then you'll be gone
I realised your just a tourist
Tourist
Tourist

I realise your near the end of your tour
And I realise we'll be no more
Iv never felt this before
It's like I'm the body and your the sole
But we never get put into a mixing bowl
You'll soon be gone
As your just moving on
Your just a tourist

Bridge
You told me what you want and then you'll be gone
I realised your just a tourist
Tourist
Tourist

I only knew you for a few years
I had a few beers to get rid of the tears
For only a short amount of time, my heart became yours
And I'd love to come with you on your tours
But I know you wouldn't stay in one place
You treat it like a race
You think to far ahead
You say that you care

Chorus
You was the one wearing a light blue sweatshirt
It had the name of where your from on
You told me what you want and then you'll be gone
I realised your just a tourist
Tourist
Tourist

I realise your near the end of your tour
And I realise we'll be no more
Iv never felt this before
It's like I'm the body and your the sole
But we never get put into a mixing bowl
You'll soon be gone
As your just moving on
Your just a tourist
