(00:33) Verse. Robert starts singing (The guitar from the intro is backing)

When I see you sky as I kite
As high as I might
I can't get that high
The how you move
The way you burst the clouds
It makes me want to try

(00:50) Then the synthesizer plays this..(This will be called Synth.II)

(01:07) Verse. Robert starts singing again (The guitar from the intro is backing)

When I see you sticky as lips
As licky as trips
I can't lick that far
But when you pout
The way you shout out loud
It makes me want to start

(01:23) Synth.II comes in again playing through the rest of the verse..

And when I see you happy as a girl
That swims in a works of magic show
It makes me bite my fingers through
To think I could've let you go

(01:42) Chorus. The guitar plays this behind Robert's vocals..

And when I see you
Take the same sweet steps
You used to take
I say i'll keep holding you
My arms so tight
I'll never let you slip away

(02:32) Verse. Robert starts singing again (This time backed only by Synth.I)

And when I see you kitten as a cat
Yeah as smitten as that
I can't get that small
The way you fur

(02:40) The guitar riff from the intro comes in..

The how you purr
It makes me want to paw you all

(02:48) Synth.II comes in..

And when I see you happy as a girl
That lives in a world of make-believe
It makes me pull my hair all out
To think I could've let you leave

(03:06) Outro.

And when I see you
Take the same sweet steps
You used to take
I know i'll keep on holding you
In arms so tight
They'll never let you go

(03:34) End of the song.
