Pretty face in the photograph
So prepossessing, do you mind if I ask
How'd you get to look like that?
Pretty face, we met last week
Made your way toward me from your side of the street
Held my gaze a tad too long
What's going on with me?
Pretty face came out of the blue
Who would have thought that I'd be tethered to you
Though I'd set out to hold my own
The armour fell when you got me alone
Easy to say these clichéd lines, but
None will do you justice when I try to define you
I know I was not delusional
Only a fool caught up in the visuals

Here I am, wading into the depth
Of my own shallow thought courses
Didn't hurt to test the waters, does it?
Some call it morally wrong
To base your loving solely on
A first impression or a double take
But this is a mistake I want to make

Pretty face, you smell so good
Just another trait that had me hooked on you
Sent to haunt me through the night
Your cologne, my kryptonite
How I love it when you say my name
Though I'll ponder on the notion of you calling me baby
Maybe it's just your divinity
Making me stay within this vicinity

Not a lot of time left of the night
You'll be a world away, come on and lay it
We aren't the same, the same forever
So for now hold tight

Tell me when we'll ever see a view like this again
I never thought that one could love to feel this flawed
So seize the day
Without a need to tell me you were thinking the same thing
Harmless, skinny love's my favourite kind
So read my mind
Read my mind

Not a whole lot of time
Left of the night
You'll be a world away, come on and lay it
We aren't the same, the same forever
So for now hold tight
Some call it morally wrong
To base your loving solely on
A first impression but I put this down to fate
So it's a risk I'll take
Tell me when we'll ever see a view like this again
I never thought that one could love to feel this flawed, oh honey
So seize the day
Without a need to tell me you were thinking the same thing
Harmless, skinny love's our favourite kind
Woah, a bit of harmless, skinny love's our favourite kind
So read my mind
Please read my mind
