People Watching

Conan Gray


That wasn’t funny, but she laughed
So hard she almost cried
They’re counting months they’ve been together
Almost forty-nine

He’s making fun of how she acted around the holidays
She wears a ring, but they tell people
That they’re not engaged

They met in class for metaphysical philosophy
He tells his friends: I like her
'Cause she’s so much smarter than me
They’re having talks about their futures until 4 am
And I'm happy for them

But I wanna feel all that love and emotion
Be that attached to the person I'm holding
Someday, I’ll be fallin’ without caution
But, for now, I'm only people watching

I'm only looking just to live through you vicariously
I’ve never really been in love, not seriously
I had a dream about a house behind a picket fence
Next one I choose to trust
I hope I use some common sense

But I cut people out like tags on my clothing
I end up all alone, but I still keep hoping

I wanna feel all that love and emotion
Be that attached to the person I'm holding
Someday, I’ll be fallin’ without caution
But, for now, I'm only people watching

Cut people out like tags on my clothing
I end up all alone, but I still keep hoping
I won’t be scared to let someone know me
Life feels so monotone, but I still keep hoping

Cut people out like tags on my clothing
I end up all alone, but I still keep hoping
I won’t be scared to let someone know me
Life feels so monotone, but I still keep hoping

I feel love emotion

I wanna feel all that love and emotion
Be that attached to the person I'm holding
Someday, I’ll be fallin’ without caution
But, for now, I'm only people watching
