In all this subtlety, I swear I'm moving on.
From a memory that's been hanging round for far too long.
You're a tidal wave that pulled me out to sea,
so I'm swimming back to catch my breath and be.

So, I'll hold you close to me.
I'll hold you close to me.
I'll hold you close to me.
I'll hold you close to me.

Did you stake me out and follow my tracks.
I never seem to look, except when I'm looking back.
You're a silhouette, at least that's what I'm told.
Yeah, you'd take my beating heart and trade it in for gold.

I know, there's nothing that I can be.
So you'd reconsider this, and think something more of me.
You're a fatalist, at least that's what it seems.
I am not an optimist, but I do believe in dreams.
