countless songs lyrics – lex land

you seek quality, not quant*ty, that’s what i’ve accepted gracefully.
so i smile happily
as you slip a pretty girl your number right in front of me.
and i’d like to see you lighter, a little less gloom in your face,
and as much as i would have loved a chance to try, it’ll never be my place.

so i stop to wonder what this feeling would sound like for sure,
but i know that my countless songs
don’t compare to a stranger’s simple word.

one step and you were taken, a smile was all she had to do,
and you know i can’t really blame you ’cause i’d noticed her before, too.
and if you never want what you have, then you’ll never want me,
regardless of who i am or the things that i think.

so i stop to wonder what this feeling would sound like for sure,
but i know my countless songs
don’t compare to a stranger’s simple word.

and you know if i were a little different, things might be a little different,
but then i wouldn’t be myself, and this might not seem as real.
and you know the closer i get to you,
the farther away i feel.
and the only question in the mix was if you felt the spark
not for your permission to kiss you in the dark.
but i guess i was just deluded, so forget everything i said.
it must have been some fantastical dream
that i thought up all alone in my head.

and if i stopped wondering what this feeling would sound like for sure…
