Keely Aimee sat next to me
My hair stood up on end
And Keely Aimee, maybe one night
We could be better friends
I know this town's been hard on you
I've seen the neighbors close their shades
But Keely, they've got their secrets too
So you fell in some mud, you haven't fallen from grace

Keely Aimee, I'm sure you dreamed you'd do far greater things
But, Keely, I wish you wouldn't dwell on what could and couldn't be
I know how dreams can let you down
I've had some rude awakenings
But Keely, I still go back to sleep
In the dead of night you spring to life for me

Keely Aimee
Keely Aimee

Keely Aimee, I know this world is such a heavy weight
And, Keely Aimee, those crows feet perched at such an early age
Well, I'd help you shoo those birds away
If the burden's just too much
See, Keely, I love your suffering like gravity loves a stumbling drunk

So Keely Aimee, lay next to me
Rest your head against mine
In all of the world I've never known a sadder Valentine
And when will I sleep and dream of the city towering into the clouds?
We'll run through the streets anonymously
A whole new life
If only we knew how

Keely Aimee
If only we knew how
Keely Aimee
Oh, no, no
If we knew how
If we knew how
If we knew how

    General Commenti feel like Keely Aimee is an anagram...but i haven't figured it out yet. the song seems pretty self explanatory other than that.

    General CommentThis might have something to do with it. Sounds like something Tim might read.
