it all starts
in '87
she's just a little kid
in connecticut

in her eyes
you'll see a little bit
of the atlantic
she keeps a piece of it

and we've got no place to go
but up

i regret
the handful of times
that i have made you cry
and i apologize

but don't forget
to read those last few lines
and please just come inside
it's so damn cold tonight

and we've got no place to go
but up

and we just need some place to grow
because

i think this is a really good thing we've got going
without knowing
what comes next

i think i could be happy with you for a long time
if you're all mine
what comes next?
