Way too old to crush like a kid
But when the feeling hits
I’m floatin’ ten feet above my head
And I haven’t even met her yet

She’s got me turned up every day
There’s static in my head
I’ll always want her here to stay
But I can’t wait to miss her again

She’s walking, dancing, slidin’ slow
In my universe like a maze
Tripped and fallen, so damn close
From a thousand miles away

She speaks logic through her heart
In the most Suriya way
Travels till she’s broke
But always finds a place to stay

Fights like a feminist for the beaten
Broken and dismayed
She’s the perfect heartbeat in your chest
Like a folk song startin’ to play

She’s walking, dancing, slidin’ slow
In my universe like a maze
Tripped and fallen, so damn close
From a thousand miles away

Now I’m comfortably frozen, no need to pose
She’s got me in a daze
Closer than she’s ever been
A thousand miles away
