Lilt (1997)

By James Moats in Thomasville, NC

you don't know how far i'd go
to keep myself from feeling low
you'd say why must you go
you can't understand we have everything to lose

i can't explain
there's something about it
something inside me
something about you
hidden inside you

the distance measured in hundreds of miles
and emotionally further still
but i'm lost in your eyes i smile at your smile
and you've touched me deep against my will

there's no need to explain
it was just a mistake
a simple rush of blushing cheeks
i can't explain
there's something about it
something inside me
something about you
we have everything to lose

you'd say why must you go
you can't understand we have everything to lose
