cut and paste folklore
i thought i saw you walk past me,
you didn't though.
in my defense, i have none
but it would've been fun
seeing you again.
you know the greatest loves of all time are over now
you always talked about the great ones
but it's another day waking up alone-
who knows if you never showed up, what could've been
i wouldn't know how butterflies are supposed to feel-
you had a marvelous time ruinin' everything
10 days is a long time
to wait for your letter
i had a marvelous time
on the first of october
so i want you to know
when no one is around, my dear
i pretend i'm shining just for you.
i'm still a daydreamer but i don't know why
i've never been a natural
all i do is sigh
i'm still trying everything
to keep you looking at me.
i never thought i needed anything more
than that one day at the bookstore
'cause you were never mine
will we talk when we're back at school?
i though just wanting was enough
'cause you weren't mine to lose.
what did you think i'd say to that text?
what do you sing on your drive home?
when I thought of you it's like I couldn't breathe.
but if I just showed up at your locker
would you say hi? would you smile?
i'm only 17, i don't know anything
except what you showed me.
your favorite song was playing
but i changed it to mine.
i dreamt of you all afternoon
but i can't know about what happens when
you see my face again.
if you kiss me, will it be just like i dreamed it?
only i just dreamed it.
take me to the city where all the poets
went to fall in love
tell me what are my words worth
when i write to you again.
i want to watch you grow a garden over me
'cause i haven't moved in years-
those hills look like a perfect place to cry
when the haze you left clears-
so i'm setting off, but will you drive me there?
