Gavin DeGraw - Spell It Out Lyrics




With my eyes wide open
And with words unspoken
I still understand

And I'm reading your mind
Using every outline
You're drawing in my hand

Ooo, feel your fingers
Ooo, I'm in way too deep

To wake up
Step out
Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
You know what I mean I
Can't find
Any reason I would ever wanna turn back now
Once you spelled it out

Oh, when I first met you
There were things I'd been through
That I would never tell

But it was almost as if
You already knew my language
Cause you'd been there yourself

Ooo, I'm still falling
Ooo, don't make me return

And wake up
Step out
Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
You know what I mean I
Can't find
Any reason I would ever wanna turn back now
Once you spelled it out

I know it's not an accident
I can feel it crashing in
And I'm not pushing back

Come on, we can leave the world behind
Close the curtains, shut out the light
Just state the good
Don't let me go
Don't tell me I should

Wake up
Step out
Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
You know what I mean I
Can't find
Any reason I would ever wanna turn back now
Once you spelled it out

Once you spelled it out
Once you spelled it out

  1. Shana banana

    With my eyes wide open
    And with words unspoken
    I still understand

    And I'm reading your mind
    Using every outline
    You're drawing in my hand

    Ooo, feel your fingers
    Ooo, I'm in way too deep

    To wake up
    Step out
    Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
    You know what I mean I
    Can't find
    Any reason I would ever wanna turn back now
    Once you spelled it out

    Oh, when I first met you
    There were things I'd been through
    That I would never tell

    But it was almost as if
    You already knew my language
    Cause you'd been there yourself

    Ooo, I'm still falling
    Ooo, don't make me return

    And wake up
    Step out
    Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
    You know what I mean I
    Can't find
    Any reason I would ever wanna turn back now
    Once you spelled it out

    I know it's not an accident
    I can feel it crashing in
    And I'm not pushing back

    Come on, we can leave the world behind
    Close the curtains, shut out the light
    Just state the good
    Don't let me go
    Don't tell me I should

    Wake up
    Step out
    Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
    You know what I mean I
    Can't find
    Any reason I would ever wanna turn back now
    Once you spelled it out

    Once you spelled it out
    Once you spelled it out

  3. Terrell Williams

    I could publish a video for the chords to this song on the piano. Do a cover so you can see how it's played. If enough people want it.

    true romance

    😻 yea!

    This has got to be my favorite love song. So beautiful and really captures how it feels to be in love.

  5. Dana D. A.

    Sweeter is such a great album! EVERY song is amazing. Gavin is such an underrated artiste, it's a damn shame. 

    Ivonne Salazar

    +Dana. A totally agree!!

  6. Barbra Breslauer

    Another great song by Gavin DeGraw that doesn't get played.   So many songs about ex-loves.  He is presently on a world tour promoting his newest album, "Make A Move" and should return to the USA late March, 2014.  Tickets sell out fast so get yours today.  Lately, he has been opening for Billy Joel!  They are great together!

  7. don't trust your eyes

    One of the most beautiful songs I've ever listened to; both music and the lyrics.

    Glad to know music can reach you at such a vunerable time in your life. My father died of luekemia. I dont know how old you are, or your situation, but pray that Gavin's music, or any one elses continutes to inspire. Gavin's music, for years, just puts me in a great place:cleaning, sitting around campfire, returning to dance classes, or taking piano for the first time... and I am 40 years old! So if I am ever in place you are, I hope music continues to inspire. . God Bless you.
