My friend, I'm writing this from not so far away
It seems my fragile heart gets worse and worse here each day
I'll remain anonymous and I'll change all the names
But I feel compelled to get these thoughts out of my brain

Something from the past is haunting me discreetly
Of what, I cannot ask
And this is just a sampling, my mind could be a century
It's much too deep for anyone to read

So I send this letter to you hoping I may hear
A tale from 'cross the pond, a sympathetic ear
For now I'll laugh with them and smile and drink their wine
But I swear I'll lose my nerve if you kiss me just one more time

Things I've discovered
(things I've discovered)
Things I remember
(things I can't remember)

It'd be a lie to say last night I didn't cry
Look at me, a big strong man, a little boy inside
But I felt infinite while riding in their car
So here's a mix tape for you proclaiming just who we are

People all around me
(people all around me)
They've never found me
(they always find me)

It's nice to know that there's someone out there like you
And of all the books I've read, I recommend a few
And cheers to you my friend for being that kind of man
Who won't have sex with someone just because you can

Something in my past has shaken me profoundly
Of what, I cannot ask
And this is just a sampling, my mind could be a century
It's much too deep for anyone to read

Love Always,
Charlie

    General CommentThis song is pretty easy. This song is about the book "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"

    General CommentYou know, I have heard this song I don't know how many times. I read the book a while ago and loved it. But I had no idea this song was about The Perks of Being A Wallflower. Looking over it again, it's rather obvious. Regardless, its an amazing song.
