lyrics

The strap around your neck
As your hands protect
That old lens on your walk to my house
And on my back step
How you softly said
“We're only here to be good”

Grace has got green eyes
I was so surprised
To be blinded by them
And the sort of smile
Brings the butterflies
As I'm lost inside them
I've been lonely but I'm
Sure she knows
So i don't hope any longer

So I bury seeds
Of all kinds of trees
Across the city as I wander
And in years she'll see
Through the falling leaves
Never knowing they're all for her

Grace has got green eyes
I was so surprised
To be blinded by them
And the sort of smile
Brings the butterflies
As I'm lost inside them
I've been lonely but I'm
Sure she knows
So i don't hope any longer

Looking out across the sea
Like a kid that sometimes dreams
Of the things he won't believe when he is older
Whims; I used to leave them be
Now they're a careless part of me
Spilling words and getting bolder
I can't help it
I put my faith in love
Waiting on someone
Who never found me

Grace has got green eyes
I was so surprised
To be blinded by them
And the sort of smile
Brings the butterflies
As I'm lost inside them
I've been lonely but I'm
Sure she knows
So i don't hope any longer
