I caught you gazing out the window
What was reflected in those eyes
Though I yearn for your attention
I'm not jealous of the skies
And I've never asked many questions
But my thoughts are laid out for all to see

Just a moment's gaze, no longer
To keep my soul in dreams all day
Friendly gestures, all so simple
Mean more than words can say
And you've never asked many questions
But the answers are now so clear to me

I never knew I was the only one
When I was the only one around
It gives a warmth so unexpected
To gaze up at what I've found


Are you seeing what I'm seeing
Are you dreaming what I'm dreaming
Are you breathing what I'm breathing
But what can I do
Yeah, I'm only thinking rash
And are you wanting what I'm wanting
Are you loving like I'm loving
'Cause you know just how I'm loving
But what can I do
Yeah, I'm not thinking rational

And what can I do
Instead of following you
I said what can I do
Instead of following you

Hello there! I'm David and I write music. I'm currently in a new band called Something Dear and we'll hopefully be doing some really cool things very soon.

Over the last three years I have been held hostage by my first solo album project. The good news is that I'm really finished with it this time*, and I'll be working hard on new things from here on.

Take care!
