Blind Spot

Written by Nicolette Good. Copyright 2014. 

Love, you came out of nowhere
Out of the corner of my eye
The years alone had gone by so slow
So I took you by the hand and said, “Let’s try”

But love is not simple; there’s no map, there’s no road
No street light to light what’s up ahead
There’s just hearsay and rumors on how to carry the load
And a voice that keeps knocking ’round my head

It says, “Check your ego at the door
Give it everything you’ve got and then a little bit more
Check your work, check your moves
Shake hands with the winner when you lose
Make a little bit of time to check in
No matter how little it’s been
‘Cause whether you like it or not
Everybody’s got their blind spot”

Love, how little I’ve come to know you
The years are always moving too fast
For all my time staring in the rearview
You’d think that I’d notice when it passed

There were times when I tried so hard to get up close
But I only disappeared
There were times when the signs said, “You know how this goes”
Still, love whispered in my ears

It says, “Check your ego at the door
Give it everything you’ve got and then a little bit more
Check your work, check your moves
Shake hands with the winner when you lose
Make a little bit of time to check in
No matter how little it’s been
‘Cause whether you like it or not
Everybody’s got their blind spot”

And I never want to lose you in mine
No, I never want to lose you in mine

So I’ll check my ego at the door
Give it everything I’ve got and then a little bit more
Check my work, check my moves
Shake hands with the winner when I lose
Make a little bit of time to check in
No matter how little it’s been
‘Cause whether I like it or not
Everybody’s got their blind spot
Yeah, whether I like it or not
Everybody’s got their blind spot
