once around the block lyrics – badly drawn boy

you quiver like a candle on fire
i’m putting you out
maybe tonight we could be the last shout
but i’m fascinated by your style
your beauty will last for a while

you’re feeling instead of being
the more that i live on the inside
there’s nothing to give
i’m infatuated by your moves
i’m got to search out for your clues

i want to repair your desire
and call it a gift that i stole from
just wanting to live
now i see the vision through your eyes
your innocence no longer fuels surprise

trying to outrun your fear
your running to lose, heart on your sleeve
and your soul in your shoes
take a left, a sharp left
and another left, meet me on the corner
and we’ll start again
