"I Love You" by Woodkid

Where the light shivers offshore
Through the tides of oceans
We are shining in the rising sun

As we are floating in the blue
I am softly watching you
Oh boy your eyes betray what burns inside you

Whatever I feel for you
You only seem to care about you
Is there any chance you could see me too?
Cause I love you
Is there anything I could do
Just to get some attention from you?
In the waves I've lost every trace of you
Where are you?

After all I drifted ashore
Through the streams of oceans
Whispers wasted in the sand

As we were dancing in the blue
I was synchronized with you
But now the sound of love is out of tune

Whatever I feel for you
You only seem to care about you
Is there any chance you could see me too?
Cause I love you
Is there anything I could do
Just to get some attention from you?
In the waves I've lost every trace of you
Where are you?

Just posting this, too, to appreciate that this is apparently "from girl to boy" and not some "friendzone" shit a boy could whine about because the singer's male.
I mean, "Oh boy" could be an interjection, but what guy uses "oh boy" in a love song? Haha. He also sings from the perspective of a woman in some of his other songs, so it's not far-fetched. Love this musician. ♥
Anyway, this song is beautiful, as are Woodkid's other songs on the "The Golden Age" album. Check it out. Link to media player on FB. :3 (It's on autoplay, so watch out for your PC volume and that you aren't already listening to music... but why would you if you're checking this out... hah. ^^)

Woodkid lyrics are great! I will have to try them out soon.

He doesn't have many songs yet, just started out, but he is so awesome. ♥

I like that his lyrics are so general and not specific like "this girl name whatever cheated on me so I write a song about it" or something along these lines which many musicians do. I appreciate the ones who have meaningful lyrics.

No matter, I've been reading the lyrics and they are wonderful. *____* <3
