sally i can see you lyrics – kimbra

sally i can see you

there’s a heartbeat in the distance, a flicker of light ahead
i’ve been down the street, where they offer good deals
i’m shaking hands with the man who says he’ll give me my dreams
reaching up for a taste from the hand that feeds
i feel it growing from whisper, to a shout and a fist in the air
i could smell the fire from miles away,
but i was always going to run after the chase
i didn’t leave you, i just went my way

i know i’ve been here before
it must have been years or more
like the first the day that i got off of the plane
and n*body cared to know of my name
i think i’ve been here

sally i can see you, i’m not the girl i once used to be
i grown out of my own muse (i feel so out of my years?)
but my heart it hasn’t changed
sally i can see you, you’re not the girl you once used to be
i don’t know how i got here
but my heart it hasn’t changed

there’s a melody i’m missing
but your song travels out to me still
like the eyes of the dusk in the hot of the glow
but i was always going to run after the storm
i didn’t leave you, i just leapt out from the sh*r*.

ooo. it’s not like it was before.
my head is short and my jeans are tight.
time p*ssed in the night time over my head
suddenly, i’m in the sea, and i’m unprepared
i wish you’d been here.

sally i can see you, i’m not the girl i once used to be
i feel so light and naive [?]
in my heart, it has no sense
sally i can see you, you’re not the girl you once used to be
i don’t know how i got here
but my heart it hasn’t changed

i let go of your hand, i knew our time was measured
i sailed out to foreign lands, just to fly together
there’s a child that i left in the town i treasure
i’m running fast but i’m not running away

sally i can see you, i’m not the girl i was
i don’t know how i got here.

sally i can see you, i’m not the girl i once used to be
i feel so light and naive
in my heart, it hasn’t changed
sally i can see you, you’re not the girl you once used to be
i don’t know how i got here
but my heart has changed.
