First day of junior high
We were the definition of nerves
Our voices were all high
And we were all a bunch of nerds
I swear half the kids dropped their books on their way to class
Trying so hard not to be late, I walking much too fast
For the sidewalk conditions, they were slick and wet
I crashed into your side, and that was how we first met

A million conversations and five years later
I was finally old enough, my parents let me date her
And all the times I had sworn she was the one
But she thought of me as just a hobby for fun

We met in the back of an old church parking lot
Cause we both knew that we had to talk
But we both just walked away cause we were much too scared
And we were much to cool to admit how much we cared

Good friends with benefits, that's all we'll ever be
Her words echo through my mind like a bad memory
She said I'm sorry kid, it's not your fault
My whole life has been building walls
And good luck shooting through bullet proof glass
These walls just don't come crumbling down that fast

We met in the back of an old church parking lot
Cause we both knew that we had to talk
But we both just walked away cause we were much too scared
And we were much to cool to admit how much we cared

That night I was thinking
And you were probably at home drinking
Nothing gets us nowhere
Well, something got us here
And are we still to cool to show we care?
Still to cool

We met in the back of an old church parking lot
Cause we both knew that we had to talk
But we both just walked away cause we were much too scared
And we were much to cool to admit how much we cared
And if you're not then I'm not, too cool to care
Anymore

We're sitting here tonight
I am the definition of nerves
Your face looks so white
Lets stop acting like 7th grade nerds
Good luck shooting through bullet proof glass
These walls just don't come crumbling down that fast
