Oil in Water

I don’t know what it is about your pretty eyes 
It’s hard to look away, it hurts to know you cry 
I wish that I could live inside your bedroom walls 
You make me wanna’ run, you make me want to crawl 

You’ve no idea what it’s like to watch you move 
Like oil in water 
A work of art using lies to tell the truth 
Like oil in water 

The seconds ticking by I wait for you to smile 
I couldn’t look away, I’d miss you all the while 
I wanna’ close my eyes and know that you will too 
I wish that I could die and live inside of you

You’ve no idea what it’s like to watch you move 
Like oil in water 
A work of art using lies to tell the truth 
Like oil in water
