i was watching your eyes lyrics – of montreal

i want to write something beautiful,
something so beautiful
that i just can’t sing it
without getting that incredible feeling,
the one that just overwhelms my senses.
because it’s the only thing i have,
it’s the only thing that makes my life worthwhile.

i know there aren’t too many people
who allow themselves to say what they feel,
so i was watching your eyes,
in case they just might say something.

i want to think someone’s beautiful,
that they’re so beautiful it’s a thrill to be near them.
fill my stomach with b*tterflies,
have me floating on air,
bring something out of me i didn’t know was there.
but it’s such a torturous thing
that i am not excited by anyone.

i know there aren’t too many people
who allow themselves to say what they feel,
so i was watching your eyes,
in case they just might say something.
