Landfall

lyrics

I know that you want to feel love
Like it's pouring from the sky
I know that you need to see love
When you're looking in my eyes
To think instead of feel
Is the greatest curse of all
Abstracted from what's real
I can't even see the landfall

Coming up against my limitations
Hitting up against the wall inside
You see me stop and stare
Like there's nothing I can do
I see you falling back
Like someone's gonna save you
To dream instead of love
Like there's somewhere I could hide
But you know what's on the inside

Coming up against my limitations
Hitting up against the wall
No one has to know the implications
When I can't even see the landfall

They don't even know my name and
Even though they look the same and
If only this could be a real love
But you know I'm thinking when you feel love
