Saw him on a Friday outside some run down saloon
he was cryin over someone that he felt left much too soon
I said, hey boy don't you cry tonight
let me take you out on this town
he looked at me and smiled as one last tear splashed off the ground
with half a wink he asked me what are you some kind of freak
I told him no, I guess I just feel your vibe is kinda deep
the moon hung over soho
and I counted 16 stars
I pointed at the brightest one and said now that one's ours
he's a dandelion, up on his hill above the sea
he's not exactly everything I thought that he might be

he's a dandelion
he looks like everything I need
I thought he was a flower
but I found out he's a weed

Then I hold on hold on hold on
hold on hold on hold on

he just might be poison
but I took him to my roof top
I said are you afraid of heights,

He said no I am not
I said hey boy don't you lie to me, tell me everything you feel
we danced around in circles,
He said I think we found something real

he's a dandelion, up on a cliff above the sea
he's not exactly everything I thought that he might be

he's a dandelion
he looks like everything I need
I thought he was a flower
but I found out he's a weed

Then I hold on hold on hold on
hold on hold on hold on

Down in union square
I saw him walking all alone
I walked a little slower just so I'd remain unknown
he met someone on seventeenth that he knew her all too well
my little piece of heaven has a secret he won't tell
with half a smile he took her hand
and then they walked away
I realized I would not see my boy after today

I fell in love with a dandelion
and he's all I ever had
at first he looked so sweet
but in the end he tastes so bad
he's a dandelion, up on his cliff above the sea
he's not exactly everything I thought that he might be

he's a dandelion
he looks like everything I need
I thought she was a flower
but I found out he's a weed

Then I hold on hold on hold on
hold on hold on hold on
hold on hold on hold on
hold on hold on hold on
yeah hold on

    General CommentListening to this song now -- I'm usually more into Ska, but actually, as much as it pains me to say this. It's sctually quite good. Much better than Paris, I agree. At least Richie has some musical background for god's sake. She has a nice voice and I hope she cleans up her act and this song gets the recognition it should and not just because of who she is...
    Good on ya Nic!

    General CommentThe song is about how she fell for a guy who wasn't what he appeared to be.
    I believe he was still in love with his EX and was actually still seeing her here and there throughout their (his & the singer's) relationship.

    Nicole Richie should continue to do music.

    General CommentIts not too bad of a song, I like Nicole Richie more than Paris, Nicole can sing, and Nicole is human.
