Lyrics Trip: Out of my League by Stephen Speaks

LSS of the week. Not that I'm complaining. I love this song. For some reason, it makes me smile. Aside from the lovely piano introduction, maybe it's a twisted fantasy of mine that someone somewhere is singing this song for me. Not that Ivan would be caught dead humming this cheese-fest(and, for the record, dear to my heart, I'm definitely not out of your league).

-

It's her hair and her eyes today
That just simply take me away
And the feeling that I'm falling further in love
Makes me shiver but in a good way

All the times i have sat and stared
As she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair
And she purses her lips, bats her eyes as she plays,
with me sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say

Coz I love her with all that I am
And my voice shakes along with my hands
Coz she’s all that I see and she’s all that I need
And I'm out of my league once again

It's a masterful melody when she calls out my name to me
As the world spins around her she laughs, rolls her eyes
And I feel like I'm falling but it's no surprise

Coz I love her with all that I am
And my voice shakes along with my hands
Coz it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
But I'd rather be here than on land

Yes she's all that I see and she's all that I need
And I'm out of my league once again
