If I’d have held your face

would you have stayed still?

When I looked at you

I should have turned your heard toward me

cupping your cheeks in my hands

to lift your gaze to mine

glimpsing my life coinciding with yours

 

Please don’t turn away

I want you back my way

I’ll hold your chin in my hands

and make you look up to our plans

Eye to eye we’ll get kiss to kiss

 

If I’d explored your eyes first

could I have found that kiss?

When you lifted your head from my shoulder

I should have shown you my lips

that like my arms are open for you

I could hold you close

give you a cushion to land

 

Please don’t turn away

I want you back my way

I’ll hold your chin in my hands

and make you look up to our plans

Eye to eye we’ll get kiss to kiss

 

If I’d have told you you’re wonderful

would you have believed me?

When I brushed my fingers through your hair

and whispered you’re beautiful

I should have shared more

Those unsaid words you won’t know

They’re what I love about you.

 

Please don’t turn away

I want you back my way

I’ll hold your chin in my hands

and make you look up to our plans

Eye to eye we’ll get kiss to kiss
