lyrics

My eyes keep gliding over her lips like gloss
I try to speak. My words are lost.
I have a million thoughts but somewhere they’re caught

She's on the tip of my tongue
Just past the edge of my reason
A dream vanishing into a feeling
Haunted and wholly undone
She's on the tip of my tongue

Her flavor is bittersweet
A dangerous taste
How will I know if her love is laced
Until it's too late
Well, now it’s too late

She's on the tip of my tongue
Just past the edge of my reason
A dream vanishing into a feeling
Haunted and wholly undone

With a kiss
Maybe this time I'll make her stay
With a kiss
Maybe she won't slip away

She's on the tip of my tongue
Just past the edge of my reason
A dream vanishing into a feeling
Haunted and wholly undone
She's on the tip of my tongue
Just past the edge of my reason
A dream vanishing, leaving me reeling
Haunted and wholly undone
She's on the tip of my tongue
