about

A song from a stalker's point of view.

lyrics

There's this girl,
She's about, 5 foot 5,
With long brown hair,
And deep green eyes.
Smile that's addictive,
And always wears her glasses,
Never shy,
Not even to the masses.

Wears flowly skirts,
That go down to her ankles,
Always a pretty pattern,
Makes me get entangled,
One ring of gold,
Nothing too showy,
Doesn't even need makeup,
She's that pretty.

I want to say hello,
But I can't.

Oh, Iris,
The lady I've always loved,
I think about you day and night,
Will you come here and stand by me,
So I can be alright.

And her realm's filled with plush animals,
And a guitar in the corner that catches your eye.
Notebook filled with words from her thoughts
And I know all the words to her songs,

See, she performs for me,
An audience of one,
Doesn't mind to share her feelings.
Deepest darkest ones,
To a man she doesn't know,
Her voice is so sweet.

I want to say hello,
But I can't.

Oh, Iris,
The lady I've always loved,
I think about you day and night,
Will you come here and stand by me,
So I can be alright.

And it's 2 AM when I see a car pull up.
Though she's not the driver, it's another man in love.
She gives him a kiss, leaves a crack in the door.
He pulls away, I gain confidence and more,

I get closer to the house, with a smile on my face,
Open her door, but I know this walkway,
Smells so pretty and I can't believe it's time,
To say... hello...
