lyrics

She was the sunrise
But he refused to get up
Cause the touch of her rays
Just wasn't enough
And even if he tried
He knew he'd only burn
Cause the beauty of her eyes
Is something that you earn

She saw the big picture
All he could see was her
But he couldn't hold his tongue
He was careful but so young

The philosophers say it's the wild part of her that wants you
And that she deals with it like fools do
Saying that she can't choose
Her separated lips send you up into the air without a parachute
Do you think that she can catch you?
Do you think she really loves you?

Fever blisters on your lips from the heat of the words that you've carefully sung
But when you light such a fire filled with heartache and desire
You let her smoke slowly fill up your lungs
She'll never let you burn and she'll pray that it won't die down
Because she needs you
Do you think she really loves you?

The philosophers say it's the wild part of her that wants you
And that she deals with it like fools do
Saying that she can't choose
Her separated lips send you up into the air without a parachute
Do you think that she can catch you?
Do you think she really loves you?
