Lyrics

Access

 

We met on a crowded street

You were in such a hurry, thought you'd never notice me

But there you stood in your emblemmed ivy league

So full of who you were, I thought I'd better let you be.

(Then you text me and I called you and you thought it'd be good for us to meet)

So I'm standing by my car in your well-lit parking lot

We laughed most of the day

By the end of our night I didn't want you to get away

So there we sat, (what an awkward silence) royal blue SUV

Let me get it off my chest, that I wanted you all for me

(But my mind went back to high school, with no letter, no pin what could I do)

Though my vision’s really clear, I can't see past you my dear

 

Chorus

It's about access to you

It’s about getting to the one you love, and it's about them letting you

Have that access to you

About being with the one you love and it's about them letting you

 

Verse 2

We've cried so many tears

While my heart was on my sleeve, you hid yours away for years

You even stayed while you held him down

All that time did reveal, that there was no love to be found

(Well she told me that she loved me, but she still put someone else above me)

And we feel like we've been robbed, so we cry out to our God.

 

Speaking voice

Then I saw you and you saw me, and we almost passed each other by

What screamed inside your heart, whispered to your mind "let me give someone else a try"

Now this fool, he's gonna try to come back? 

I guess he felt like he wasn't finished playing his part. What do you think about that?

 

So you showed him the door, now I'm standing guard for your heart

 

Chorus 2

It's about access to you

About getting to the one you love

It's about access to you

About being with the one you love

It's about access to you

About getting to the one you love

It's about access to you

About being with the one you love
