When I Scared You

from by Dusty Stray

lyrics

From my balcony up on the top floor
Where thousands of windows were glowing below
I watched you through my telescope

I feel I know you now better than most
As though I’ve been courting you much like a ghost
And I yearned to be closer

I found your apartment so effortlessly
Followed you everywhere for a few weeks
Yet you never saw me

Until the night I was right by your door
You caught my eye though the lighting was poor
And I could see you were frightened

When I scared you
I really scared you
And when I scared you
You were mine
