Crushed Out Lyrics

You know I'm crushed out on you, you alone
If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone
Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me
But only time will show how far it can goHis voice, it comforts me, sweet and raspy tone of love
It trails me into dreams, I wanna wake up to it, full blast
His name alone gives me a rush, what a feeling
I can feel it in my bones, a spirit I'm craving in my soul
You could feel it all but you don't even knowThat I'm crushed out on you, you alone
If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone
Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me
But only time will show how far this can goI'm longing for the space and time to chill with you
Thinking of the ways that I could keep my cool
But this brown eyed girl and brown eyed boy
Time stood still and passed us by
'Cause baby I, I've been waiting for a little timeOh, and you were so beautiful and [Incomprehensible]
You're my kind of guy, if I had a type of guy, I'd say it's you
So don't let them bring you down
'Cause right about now I like having you around
And if it's real that's where hearts residesAnd I'm crushed out on you, you alone
If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone
Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me
But only time will show how far this can goIf you think of me half as much as I do you
Confide in me, let's play for keeps
And I can tell you all the things I longed to say
The future wants, we'll find a way and we can let it go'Cause I'm crushed out on you, you alone
If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone
Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me
But only time will show how far this can goI'm crushed out on you, you alone
If I thought you had my number I'd stay home by the phone
Day and night I sit and wait for you to call me
But only time will show how far this can go
