could have been watching you lyrics – mandy moore

i’ve seen the shadows casting the spells
sunlight was flashing on somebody else
when i could have spent this whole night
watching you
i’ve not seen the city so down in the rain
still i can find an excuse to complain
when i could have spent these hours
watching you

chorus:
i keep on waiting for someone to save me
from wasting the life that i knew

i open my eyes and…
i could have been watching you
i’ve seen the sadness that you’ve always known
i’m falling apart when i’m sleeping alone
and i could have spent this whole night watching you

i keep on waiting for someone to save me
from wasting the life that i knew

i open my eyes and…
i could have been watching you
i’ve not seen the sketch of myself redefined
i’ve never acknowledged what i left behind
and i could have spent my whole life watching you

i keep on waiting for someone to save me
from wasting the life that i knew
