Sunlight In Your Hair

I saw you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair
I saw you standing there,
Completely unaware,
That I saw you standing there--
That I was standing there,
Watching you standing there,
With sunlight in your hair

I saw you standing there,
Talking to someone you probably know,
Smiling, and laughing,
face all aglow,
I saw you standing there,
Completely unaware,
That I was standing there,
Watching you standing there,
With sunlight in your hair
Smiling, and laughing,
face all aglow,
Talking to someone you probably know

I saw you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair
But didn't talk to you,
It's just not something I would do
I saw you standing there,
But didn't know what to do,
So I just kept standing there,
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair,
Completely unaware,
Of who I was or that I was there,
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair

I saw you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair
Completely unaware,
Of who I was or that I was there,
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair
Hoping maybe someday you'll glance my way
Maybe someday,
you'll be aware
Of the girl who is standing there,
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair

Maybe someday,
You'll be aware,
of the girl who is standing there,
The girl who is quiet and awkward and oh, so “shy”
Of the girl who is standing there,
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair

Maybe you won't glance away
From the girl who is standing there,
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair
Maybe something will make you stay
Maybe you'll come up to me and say
Something that won't make me run away
Maybe you'll understand why
I saw you standing there,
With sunlight in your hair,
But didn't talk to you
And didn't know what to do
So I just kept standing there,
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair

I saw you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair
Completely unaware,
Of who I was or that I was there,
Or that I was standing there watching you,
with sunlight in your hair

I saw you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair
Hoping that someday
You'd be aware
Of the girl who is standing there,
Of the girl who is quiet and awkward and oh, so “shy”
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair
And maybe someday you would glance my way
And maybe you wouldn't glance away
Maybe something would make you stay
Maybe you'd come up to me and say
Something that wouldn't make me run away
Maybe you'd understand why
I saw you standing there,
With sunlight in your hair,
But didn't talk to you
And didn't know what to do
So I just kept standing there,
Watching you standing there,
with sunlight in your hair


This is completely random & unfinished. I just wrote it as it came to me, so it's got a lot of flaws.

I don't think it would work as a song lol. Though there are a lot of songs that are more than 3 minutes-- most are, in fact.

anyway, this is the 2010's, it's the job of the lover to approach the loved no matter what gender either is :-D

You could turn this into a song, but I'm not sure would fit into 3 minutes...

I really liked it lyricalongings. I like the repetitive rhythm ... it's like an inner conversation where you keep reinforcing your thoughts ... building on them and finally putting them all together at the end. Very nice ... I agree with koyptakh ...

Hi lyricalongings

well I thought it was good. I read it all the way through and wanted to know what happened. I think you capture the sense of passivity very well. It is like a stream of consciousness. It goes in circles which is just fine. No flaws.
