Dee Holt “tunnel vision” Lyrics

Verse 1
I get dizzy, head is spinning
Feelin’ feelings the closer you get to me
Baby, I don’t know where this thing will go
In the future, but right now you’re all I see

Pre-Chorus
I wonder what you think of me
‘Cause I’m thinkin’ of you endlessly
I, I, I, overanalyze
Boy, give me a sign
Or tell me if you don’t agree

Chorus
Oh, boy, boy, boy, boy
I got tunnel vision with you
Oh, boy, boy, boy, boy
Stuck in your starstruck, mm
Adrenaline is high, or maybe I’m just seasick
When you look into my eyes and drift down to my lips, mm
Oh, boy, boy, boy, boy
I got tunnel vision with you, you

Verse 2
Mm, I love your face (Love your face)
Baby, shouldn’t say (Shouldn’t say)
Everything that I’m thinkin’ inside my brain

Pre-Chorus
I wonder what you think of me
‘Cause I’m thinkin’ of you endlessly (I’m thinkin’ of you endlessly)
I, I, I overanalyze (‘Lyze)
Boy, give me a sign (Sign)
Or tell me if you don’t agree (Mm)

Chorus
Oh, boy, boy, boy, boy
I got tunnel vision with you
Oh, boy, boy, boy, boy
Stuck in your starstruck, mm
Adrenaline is high, or maybe I’m just seasick
When you look into my eyes and drift down to my lips, mm
Oh, boy, boy, boy, boy
I got tunnel vision with you, you
