I’m Jack.  You’re Jill.
I came running up your hill for water.
As the story goes as the story goes,
I fell down.  I fell hard.
I came tumbling down your hill into your yard
And that’s not all
Bumps and bruises cover my head, out and inside
Tell me I’m yours, tell me I’m yours
Tie on your line after you hang me out to dry tonight

Everyone makes mistakes
and no one can deny that now
Nobody’s perfect when they wake
we all got dirt under our fingernails (sing)
I don’t want to keep you go do what you like to
I’m not one for sentimental endings
Not this time…

I’m a bird or a kite
Without your wind I cannot fly tonight
I need a gust from you I need a gust from you
Like my moth to your flame
I got me myself and I to blame, I ignite
That’s not all
Trap me. Keep me. Save me as yours
Do as you will now
Tell me I’m yours tell me I’m yours
Catch me in your jar and watch me light into the night
for you


An answers only, an answers only,
an answers only good, until a better one comes around
Was I your answer, was I your answer?
