about

Remember when you had a crush on a girl in your class?

lyrics

8:00am sun’s waking up for class again
And your name's stuck wandering around my ballpoint pen
It's another quick comment right before the teacher’s talking
just to prove i’m worth a notch in your little book of lockets, my dear

And your response is a patient-eyed and smile
that leaves me all breathless and awake on the tile
Until I'm left with quivering knees
Praying I really wish i knew the air between your teeth

With the lecture softly going in the background
I move on to dosey-doeing in my mind with you again,
Well, I was never really one for tippy-toeing
so if we get to get-to-knowing
I will let you in

Turn my head around from looking at you
get a demerit from the teacher for breaking the classroom rules
That's alright, I'll stay enamored and rude
If it means your replacing my spring/summer blues 

With the lecture softly going in the background
I move on to dosey-doeing in my mind with you again,
Well, I was never really one for tippy-toeing
so if we get to get-to-knowing
I will...

Let me in
If I’m really being honest, I can’t find my polyphonic
So I’ll keep writing down these sonnets, until I’ve entertained my pockets
Whether it's slow jog or fast pace to the elevator
I'm still working on my timing for my daily see-you-later
