Faded Red – Longboard lyrics

Sometimes I sit alone and watch the sun go down
Sometimes I get the feeling I want someone around
And suddenly you came to me in a funny kind of way
With a longboard over your shoulder and a small vanilla latte
I need to take a chance, and make you understand that

CHORUS: Talking to you makes me feel cool again
So much more awesome than I’d ever been
But I’m never going to make you more than a friend
If I’m singing to myself
Just open up your eyes and I’ll make you see
I’m every little thing you’ll ever need
But I’ll never take a step towards ‘you and me’
If I’m singing to myself again

Some days I wake real early to watch the sun come up
It’s beautiful and magical, but that alone is not enough
I’m sitting here, you’re so, so near, and yet so, so far away
With a longboard over your shoulder and a small vanilla latte
I need to let you know, and find a way to show that


If you don’t have the time, no worries baby
I’ll still feel cool because I tried
If you don’t want to, well that’s no problem baby
But I think you’ll come around in time

If I’m singing to myself
