EELS – THE LOOK YOU GAVE THAT GUY

I never thought that I could be so bold, 

To even say these thoughts aloud.
I see you with your man, your eyes just shine,
While he stands tall and walking proud.


That look you give that guy, I wanna see …
Looking right at me.
If I could be that guy, instead of me …
I’d never let you down.

It always seems like you’re going somewhere,
Better than you’ve been before.
When I go to sleep, and I dream all night,
Of you knocking on my door.

That look you give that guy, I wanna see …
Looking right at me.
If I could be that guy, instead of me …
I’d be all I can be.
I’d be all I can be.

I’m nothing like what I’d like to be,
I’m nothing much, I know it’s true.
I lack the style and the pedigree,
And my chances are so few


That look you give that guy, I wanna see …
Looking right at me.
If I could be that guy, instead of me …
I’d give you all I got.

I never thought that I could be so bold,
To even say these thoughts aloud.
But if let’s say, it won’t work out,
You know where I can be found.

That look you give that guy, I wanna see…
Looking right at me.
If I could be that guy, instead of me…
I’d never let you down.
I’d never let you down.
