Sara Bareilles – When He Sees Me Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I stick with real things, usually facts and figures
When information’s in its place I minimize the guessing game
Guess what? I don’t like guessing games or when I feel things
Before I know the feelings, how am I supposed to operate
If I’m just tossed around by fate, like on an unexpected date

The stranger who might talk too fast
Or ask me questions about myself before I’ve decided that
He can ask me questions about myself
He might seat too close
Or call the waiter by his first name
Or eat Oreos, but eat the cookie before the cream
But what scares me the most, what scares me the most

It’s when if when he sees me
What if he doesn’t like it
What if he runs the other way, and I can’t hide from it
What happens then?
If when he knows me, he’s only disappointed
What if I give myself away to only getting given back
I couldn’t live with that
So I’m just fine, inside my shell shaped mind
This way I get the best view, so when he sees me
I want him to

[Verse 2]
I’m not defensive, I’m simply being cautious
I can’t risk reckless dating due to my miscalculating why
My certain suitors stands in line, I’ve seen in movies
Most made for television, you cannot be too careful
When it comes to sharing the life
I could end up a miserable wife

He could be criminal
Some sort of psychopath who escaped from
An institution somewhere where they don’t have girls
He could’ve mastermind it someway to find me
He could be colorblind, how untrustworthy is that
He could be less than kind, or even worse he could be very nice
Have lovely eyes, and make me laugh, come out of hiding
What do I do with that? Oh God…

What if when he sees me, I like him and he knows it
What if he opens up a door and I can’t close it
What happens then?
If when he holds me, my heart is set in motion
I’m not prepared for that, I’m scared of breaking open
But still I can’t help from open, to find someone
To talk to, who likes they way I am
Someone who when he sees me
Wants to again
