crack the shutters lyrics – snow patrol

you cool your bedwarm hands down
on the broken radiator
when you lay them freezing on me
i mumble can you wake me later
but i don’t really want you to stop
and you know it so it doesn’t stop you
you run your hands from my neck
to my chest

crack the shutters open wide
i want to bathe you in the light of day
and just watch you as the rays
tangle up around your face and body
i could sit here for hours
finding new ways to be awed each minute
’cause the daylight seems to want you
just as much as i want you

its been minutes, it’s been days,
it’s been all i will remember
happy lost in your hair
and the cold side of the pillow
your hills and valleys
are mapped by my intrepid fingers
and in a naked slumber
i dream all this again

[chorus x2]
