In between every "I love you"
I ask if you can hear me
But you're laughing with your eyes closed
And I'm hoping I at least fueled a happy dream

So I leave you there and I take to the streets
It's 3 AM and I can't sleep
It's been twenty years now and I don't know
What I'm doing, where I should go

Then I remember you're naked in my bed, too drunk to speak
And suddenly it feels so good to be twenty

In between all your "I'm sorry"s
I ask if you can see me
Your cross-eyes leading yourself to the bathroom
You slept through a party
Now I can see the party is in your dreams

I take off my jeans and crawl into the
The new sheets that you brought me
And the bed may be
Too small for me

But it wasn't when I was seven
Not with the sheets with the stars and the moonbeams
And with you so softly breathing I know
That you won't ever know

Squeeze you tight
Turn out the lights
And hope I dream about being in the stars with you

I'm still awake after a long birthday
Wonderin' who's gonna clean my apartment
And the bed may be
Too small for me

But it wasn't when I was seven
Not with the sheets with the stars and the moonbeams
And with you so softly dreaming I know
That you won't ever know
That the birthday you missed me blow out
Came true, I fell asleep next to you

    General Commenti can't believe no one's commented on this song yet.


    this song is so great. i think it's the cutest song ever. he's freaked out about being young, and not knowing where he's going in life, but it doesn't matter because he's got girl, man.


    and the second to last line is "that the birthday wish you missed me blow out"
