While They’re Looking

She doesn’t see past his sun bright eyes,
The mirror in all reflections shines the light
So don’t tell her why I’m passing by
The winter snows I chase in the night

Miracles aren’t supposed to just happen,
Explain to me why you are my lesson
So don’t find the fog in the bay,
These winter showers won’t make us stay

Do everything you can while they’re looking,
Because you’ll find that nothing lasts forever
And if promises meant anything,
Than you would have stayed

She hears the words through ricochet
And feels the things that you meant to say
You’ll never be the man you said you’d be
But you’ll always be better off than me

Smile like the dentists won’t remove your lungs
Do everything you can while you sit in the chair
These falling leaves don’t mean anything
They never meant anything to me

She doesn’t see past his cold hands,
The reflection in the hall reminded her to breathe,
So don’t tell her why I can’t stand
The summer rain is making me leave

Do everything you can while they’re looking
Because someday they’ll be too far away,
And if promises meant anything,
Than you would stay
