(one, two, three, four)
you told me 32 ways to make you smile.
i did 31 within the first hour.
you stood amazed, in your delighted shoes.
bewildered but willing.
i didn't know what to do.
so i grabbed your cold hand,
pressed it to my beating heart,
and said, "isn't it neat how our bodies tick? and we can move our feet whenever and however we please?"
you stared blindly while i waited politely
in the doorway by our school.
some cars passed and i noticed someone was singing "us" by regina spektor.
you know how i had a crush on her.
i know you don't like grey skies.
we know our multiplication tables.
you got straight a's while i was writing fairy tales and looking out window sills asking why.
the sunshine liked my eyes and kissed my cheek
when it knew i was in love with the moon.
and of course, with you
well, i sped it up 'cause you don't like slow songs.
you're more of the literal kind.
yeah, you're more like the ocean's waves;
you get closer at the end of the day, when you know i can't see your face.
when you're sure i'm already lost.
love is oh so lovely.
but it also comes with a cost.

    General Commentthis is a wonderful song.

    it's meaning? hmm. i think it's about a boy who likes a girl, who just so happens to be shy. they get to know everything about one another.. and everything's normally all happy and fine, but sometimes it's rough just like any normal relationship aka "but it also comes with a cost".
