I Can See You

With a name like Maile how could you be anything but
An island child, laying by the water in the sun
Drinkin’ tea and reading magazines
Taking naps in your bikini
Hey mama what’s your name? You’re my one.

I can see you
I can see you
I can see you playing on the beach
I can see you
I can see you
I can see you comin up and kissin me

Yes there is something inside me you alone stir with your strut
I do a funny little dance cause I can’t contain my love
Walkin hand in hand, strange city streets
Takin’ pictures, loving who we meet
Sittin in a restaurant long after we are done and everyone’s gone

I can see you
I can see you
I can see you sittin there with me
I can see you
I can see you
I can see you lookin’ so sweet

Your eyes told me hold me
Your map told me unfold me
Your lips practice poetry
Your stars a certain symmetry

And so you called me Jabie, your singin twin, your bean-headed nut
Whistlin love songs for you all day, all night touching toes under the covers
Still remember when I saw you in the store
Still want you everyday a little more
You’re my constant question, my how, my why, my when, my what

I can see you
I can see you
I can see you standin there right next to me
I can see you
I can see you
I can see you marrying me
