Crack the shutters open Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You cool your bed-warm hands down
On the broken radiator
And when you lay them freezing on me
I mumble, "Can you wake me later?"

But I don't really want you to stop
And you know it so it doesn't stop you
And run your hands from my neck to my chest

Crack the shutters open wide
I wanna bathe you in the light of day
And just watch you as the rays
Tangle up around your face and body

I could sit for hours finding new ways
To be awed each minute
'Cause the daylight seems to want you
Just as much as I want you

It's been minutes, it's been days
It's been all I will remember
Happy lost in your hair
And the cold side of the pillow

Your hills and valleys
Are mapped by my intrepid fingers
And in a naked slumber
I dream all this again

Crack the shutters open wide
I wanna bathe you in the light of day
And just watch you as the rays
Tangle up around your face and body

I could sit for hours finding new ways
To be awed each minute
'Cause the daylight seems to want you
Just as much as I want you

Crack the shutters open wide
I wanna bathe you in the light of day
And just watch you as the rays
Tangle up around your face and body

I could sit for hours finding new ways
To be awed each minute
'Cause the daylight seems to want you
Just as much as I want you
