I will be
on this swing
until you decide to get me

it's the set
across from school
in the half developed park

though the days
place their weight
on the top sides of my eyelids

I refuse
I refuse
to be asleep when you arrive

so I stay awake
use the cars to count the days
I have waited eyes wide open believing you will come
somewhere far, you are
strumming your nylon guitar
well it's ok, take your time
you got all night
cause I'll be on this swing the rest of my life

I chose this
certain place
cause it was here that i first realized

I had known
you so long
but I'd just then seen your eyes

and my past
it erased
and I didn't even notice

for my fate
had been sketched
on the surface of your face

and from that point on
I can't believe that I belong
to a world that would keep both of us
away for 16 years
but I won't make a fuss
because when it comes to us
a little time is so much better
than none at all
I'm just grateful to have possessed you

I know you hear me now
darling, we are allowed
to make mistakes in youth
but now I'll tell the truth
the truth
the truth is
the truth is
the truth is
the truth is
the truth is we were much too beautiful to be apart
you and I
are victims of
Cupid's darts

so it's been
several years
and it may be a several more but

I don't care
I don't keep
track of time because I know

you are my
moonlit tide
and I'm telling you come closer

there is no
need to fight
we are inevitable

so if you don't mind
even though i have some time
I'd pick sooner over later to make you mine again
is that you down the road
driving towards me really slow
could it be
could it be
you have finally come
the car is coming closer..
..and it's you.
