about

I wrote this track all the way back when I was 20! Fans of my college band Under Escape will know this one! It's a great song for all you lovers out there. Scientifically proven to be 100% effective for making out.

lyrics

[Verse 1]
Driving by your place in the morning
We're going dancing in the darkness
I thought I'd never feel
I always think I'll never feel

Singing songs to you about nothing
Because nothing fits this moment
You know I'd love to know
But I am more than just a little scared to ask

[Chorus]
So I'll take a chance
I'm holding my breath so you can't forget me

[Verse 2]
The smell of flowers is your illusion
And morning fog is my confusion
But flowers always bloom in the day
And fog will melt away

And all this happiness ain't leaving
So wake me up I must be dreaming
I know the feeling comes from you
But how do I know it's true?

[Chorus]
So I'll take a chance
I'm holding my breath so you can't forget me
But I am just a man
And I'm never gonna know if you won't let me

[Bridge]
There's no turning back
I wanna try you out
Maybe we'll have fun
Even if it don't work out
There's something strangely fun
Not knowing if you're the one
If you're the one

[Chorus]
So I'll take a chance
I'm holding my breath so you can't forget me
But I am just a man
And I'm never gonna know if you won't let me
Now I have a plan
I'll swallow my fear cause I can't forget you
And you will take my hand

I'm so glad you're here and I wonder where you've been all this time
