The two phrases that would describe this song would be “puppy love” and “wearing your heart on your sleeve.”  I don’t remember the inspiration for this song, but as I wrote it I had a particular memory in mind.  It was my sophomore year in college and I was going to a Christmas party.  Although I don’t remember everything, one thing sticks out.  There was a certain someone that had caught my interest that semester and I knew there was a good chance she would be at the party.  I remember opening the door and she was right there.  The feelings in this song are some of what I experienced that night.

PS I eventually married her.

“Lost for Words”

lyrics by Tim Seley

you and I were meant to be
as soon you can clearly see
I’m the one for you
you’re the one for me
why can’t you just see?

I’ve got so much to say to you
but as soon as you walk in the room
I’m lost for words
I’m lost for words
I can barely breathe

I can’t take my eyes off of you
you don’t know how much you mean to

too bad that you don’t seem to know
if I stay or if I go
I’m invisible
time for me to go

walking past… smell your perfume
grab my coat and I leave the room
and I don’t see… your eyes
follow me
