Once in a Great While Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
We could bail out either side, or take a rest
Find me in the corner with your nervous laugh
In my hesitation don't you pass
I might be the only fool who cares
Verse 2
But don't you feel like you're under this wave (of staggering charm[?])
Verse 3
One was set to carry you, and never came
I was laying hungry but surprised to be
But I sure love the way that you (lingered here/linger dear[?])
Verse 4
Once in a great while I could be (so bright/right[?])
And more than I can say it just feels awfully right
(And borrowing every angle 'till it's centered in 'I'[?])
Verse 5
Don't be so bashful
It's me in the shadows
And I'm laying, groaning
Until you find a way back to me
Until you find a way to soothe me
Verse 6
Well tell me, it's starlight
It's stars in your eyes
