I watch you sit and twitching with a match between your teeth

   |D                                       |Bm 
You seem to have a knack for moving it, It's in time to the beat

I can't be distracted
By the stuttering of the kids
I just sit enraptured
By your fluttering eyelids

||:D         |Bm                |D                |Bm     |    :||x2
   I can only stare, you make me feel like I don't care

I can only stare, you make me feel like I don't care

Your eyes explain a story
That never had a start
Your brow reveals the glory
That's hidden in your heart

Face dances tonight, Fate chances moonlight
Face dances tonight, Fate chances moonlight

Your skin is fine china
White as winter snows
Your lips are always shining
Turning up your nose

Face dances tonight, Fate chances moonlight
Face dances tonight, Fate chances moonlight

Face dances tonight, Fate chances moonlight
Face dances tonight, Fate chances moonlight

I can only stare, you make me feel like I don't care
