A thousand times a day I tell you I love the way you sing.
Even though it makes me cry, it's my favorite time to be alive.
And all I know is I feel lost without you.
I miss you's not enough.
I know the story's old, it's been told a million times before.
But to tell it feels so good it reminds me not all I do is right
And all I know is I feel so lost without you.

Now, I remember the day I was a kid in 8th grade.
Your friend tapped me on the sholder and asked if I would be your boyfriend.
Oh yeahh, we were intense then.
We would walk and hold hands, you were taller than me.
Then I got a friend to tell you that I didn't want to be anymore.
Oh no, not anymore.

So then for three more years we would never talk.
And I'm not gonna lie though, I couldnt stop thinking about you,
Then your best friends came over and I got them to call you
To see if you wanted to watch a band play dude ranch.
I knew that that would impress you.
So then we got to talking and before we knew it
We were always on the phone talking until four in the morning.
Yeah, there was only one problem.

Now I never knew your man, I never talked to him,
And still until this day I feel bad for it.
But I knew that I loved you and I knew that I had to do something.
So, I waited till the day you broke up with him,
We had a barbeque at our friend Jims.
Then we strolled to the backyard and that's where we shared our first kiss.
Then you watched the band play with all your friends,
And we played our set of Millencolin and Choking Victim.
I guess that didn't impress you.
Then an hour later between you and your friends,
You told me that you didn't want to be anymore.
Oh no, not anymore.

But then awhile later we got back together,
And we told each other we would be forever.
And since that day we've had our share of problems.
And now we know that it's hard but better together.
Oh yeah, it's better together.
So now we have a house and a couple pets,
We're even getting married nine years after it ends.
Everytime I see you I still hear trumpets.

    General Commenti think thats the way he wanted to write this song. hes a good enough lyric writer to put it in a more complicated way, but it's about teen romance so i guess ace wanted to write it in this childlike story.

    General CommentThis song, like ace is amazing..

    This song was written for Jenn, and it is the literal story..he wrote it for her when they were getting married, and he actually sung it at the wedding.

    Keep it up Ace.

    General CommentI think this song is so realistic. That whole part about being in 8th grade is so true, when everyone's too nervous to tell someone how they feel so they get their friends to do it. And when it's time to break up, yet again, they get the friends to do it. Then years later the guy realizes he still likes her, and the only reason he broke up with her in the first place was because he was so young and naive. Most people that young aren't comfortable in relationships.

    General CommentI can't help it, I'm a guy and I have to say this is the "cutest" song I've heard. But not cute in a boy band kind of way, cute as in that its a very passionate and romantic story but is at the same time very sincere.
