I haven't been quite the same,
So sure the story of my life would never change.
But in a bright-eyed way, she rinsed out the soap in my eyes,
And wrote a song that I'm about to sing.

She's a magnetic girl
That I hardly even know.
So this is not another love song.
Just a list of things that I should know,
And everyone should know that:

One, you got to take it kind of slowly
Two, you got to hurry up and make your move
Three, you got to tell her how you're feeling and
Four, you got to be the perfect gentleman.

When you shake the walls, you got to make 'em bend, yeah.
You got to show her that
She's the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.
her fairy tale

We took a walk in the rain.
I suggested, she confess:
"There's a heart nearby to cast that shame."

Stay cool.
But I'm giddy like a school boy.
You got to handle with care:
This is not a toy.

Then gradually we touched.
And though our clothes were wet, we sat and smiled.
I never thought I'd smile so much oh
The first kiss always says the most.

One, you got to take it kind of slowly
Two, you got to hurry up and make your move
Three, you got to tell her how you're feeling and
Four, you got to be the perfect gentleman.

When you shake the walls, you got to make 'em bend, yeah.
You got to show her that
She's the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.
fairy tale...
