Lyder Jan​ö​y & Color Theory - My Shining Armour

from Outside the Lines, Vol. 3 by Color Theory



In the beginning
I wondered what to do
Didn't really know how much
I had longed for you

I tried to make you laugh
I think you wanted me to
I tried to make you see
That I wanted you

Maybe I was soft inside my shell
Didn't know you'd send me straight to hell
I still believed and hoped and prayed
For you to take my shaking hands
And do the best you can to break the spell

Why don't you open your eyes
And see my shining armour
There really is no surprise
I'm just a little scared

First time you opened your eyes
And saw their shining beauty
It took my heart by surprise
That we already loved

I know the feeling
I've been this way before
I'm gonna go and hurt myself
And I'll come back for more

Just like a Polaroid
Some things take a while
I may be hard to get
But I won't fade in time

Maybe this was all inside my head
Maybe we won't know, it's all unsaid
Please stay, don't run, don't walk away
I see your cold and shaking hands
I’ll do the best I can to change your plans
