lyrics

On cobblestone and in a sleeping caldera
I only wanted to be near to you
On ageless streets, a cloudy beach
I obsessed over the idea of you

I was naive and we were young
And in noisy halls I could hear just you
And I couldn’t speak and I bit my tongue
And I was obsessed over the idea of you

When you left you never said where to

We found each other and we spoke,
I remembered wanting just to see you
You spent the night and I awoke
Still obsessed over the idea of you

With you undressed, now I confess
My heart raced just to be next to you
As if a test, I said the rest
That I obsessed over the idea of you

You told me that you always knew

Years had passed before we kissed
But I was too drunk to even feel you
You ran through all that I missed
And I obsessed over the idea of you

It took this long for me to know
That I could never be with you
I could never answer why, though, why
I obsessed over the idea of you

I was just obsessed with the idea of you
