Did I forget, or have I really lost my mind
Should I care about any soul but mine
It's true that time will heal my crimes
But it don't have the time to heal me
Hey old lady, remember the boy that loved you?
Well, he grew up thinking of you way too much
He didn't watch you grow
Doesn't think of you as old
Just a young girl he never got to know

Oh but I.....I haven't seen you in years
Oh but I.....I haven't seen you in years

I talk and talk to anyone that will listen
I tell those ears I'm finally finishing
Wrapping gifts for all the birthdays I missed
Happy birthday, for every one of those years
It's a crazy world and we're both stuck in it
Take my hand and I will rescue you from it
Into this perfect world, where you're dressed in pearls
We'll get married before our families in a church

Oh but I.....I haven't seen you in years
Oh but I.....I haven't seen you in years

It's been long but I still obsess
It might be weird but I must confess
I've been sick there's something wrong with me
For thinking you're every damn brunette that I see
I dream how you look like now
I haven't seen you in years

    General CommentThis is my favorite song from the new album... I can't really say that this album is better than Lunch For The Sky, I don't think that anything will ever be better than that album, but this one is also awesome! I love this song so much because I think that it's relatable to everybody and it's just really fun to listen to. Anyway, TSostarich, seriously. Stop.

    Happy birthday, for every single year.

    It's been long but I still obsess.
    It might be weird but I must confess.
    I've been sick. There's something wrong with me
    For thinking you're every tan brunette that I see.
    I dream how you look like now.
    I haven't seen you in years.
