our story now begins
with a choice of where to sit
in a school thats full of kids in lust

the hero is a boy
with a tousled midnight crown
and a raspy voice he's ashamed of

he slumps into a chair
next to a girl with bared
shoulders of cinnamon

and then the trouble starts
with a face like abstract art
he softly says ''hi my name is Kevin''

she carefully composed
some words next thing you know
he knew a name he'd not soon forget

what started as just friends
came quickly to an end
their hands entangled on a walk

they met nearby the swings
and spoke of dangerous things
the distance closing from their mouths

and then there was a kiss
their lips a perfect fit
never would they breathe again

the rumors spread around
that somewhere love was found
the miners came to town so fast

some strings made of nylon
play the chords from Everlong
and the music that they make sounds pure

they resolve to share a name
so he buys a diamond ring
and starts the journey towards her house

but now there is a twist
with a bottle to her lips
they sit upon the floor
but the words come out no more
her body language says
they're coming to an end

and then they moved away
haven't spoken to this day
but they're planning all the things they'd say

his heart begins to sink
as Jeremy says point blank
she's drownin' in some alcohol

avoiding people's eyes
on separate beds they lie
and strum the chords to this song

but this is not a song
it's a requiem for their love
here lies... Kevin and Emma

our story has no end
cause love will always mend
a song sung out of key
