Lyrics – You, You, You

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

Everywhere I look I see a memory of us

Everywhere I go I hear a laugh

It makes me smile to think it could be you

Then I realize I’m losing any clue I ever had over you

Every time I’m out I hope I’ll come across you

At the perfect time

And then I’d tell you how I’ve thought about you every day

And every word I heard you say

Replaying in my mind hoping I’d find

*

You, you, you, your smile is all I see

A distant memory of

You, you, you, I’m laughing with you too

While people wonder why

I never knew I’d need you quite like this

I wonder, will I ever have the chance to tell you

Face to face

Now it seems we’re living worlds apart

*

Every time I see your photo I’m transported to a fantasy

Which makes me think have I created my own Cinderella?

Escaping life – I’m tragic

Well I pray that all my hope is not betrayed

*

You, you, you, your smile is all I see

A distant memory of

You, you, you, I’m laughing with you too

While people wonder why

I never knew I’d need you quite like this

I wonder, will I ever have the chance to tell you

Face to face

Now it seems we’re living worlds apart

*

I’m waiting for a fantasy, avoiding my reality

I’m staring at the mirror asking

What it is I’ve tried escaping

All this time obsessing something new

Well I’ve tried to work out what I have to do

But every time it keeps on coming back to you

*
