Charmer
When I look into your eyes
I can see straight through those old white lies
Can someone take you higher
Liar
Charmer
You are one of those mistakes
A lonely singer sometimes make
You hurt my pride and leave me tongue-tied.

Charmer
Even when you're near me
Love is far away
See.

Charmer
Now where should I begin
To explain the shape I find you in
You're under age and underrated
Charmer
You're a wild storm in the night
You're the early morning shining bright
A time and motion revolution.

Charmer
Can you hear me
Do you see yourself reflected
In the stars in your eyes
Do you wear their disguise
Have they taught you how to cry.

Charmer
Deep down you're very hard
And you never played a losing card
But I am just beginning
Winning
Charmer
Now you'll make out alright
Just keep your halo shining bright
Our lines were crossed
And you just lost out
