My little umbrella you keep me dry,
On those days when the sky cries.
There are no clouds to lean on or fall through.
My little umbrella you keep me safe and warm.
I'll admit it's something I've never had before.

With hair crossing your eyes and,
A pair of black glasses.
That patient smile.

My little umbrella you cover me with shade,
On the first day of June.
I can hardly breathe but I feel lighter.
I could listen to you breathe for hours.
And hours and I do.
But it means more to me than it does to you:

The red shirt that I like and,
A locket around your neck.
The same pair of jeans as last week.

You're why the world spins.
You're why I dream when I'm awake.
You're where spring begins.
You're forever and it'll stay that way.
You're why the world spins.
(You save me from the nights where I thought I'd be without you.
But you're always there silent beneath my sheets.)
You're why I dream when I'm awake.
(We stay awake until morning comes cheek against cheek when the light peeks in)
You're forever and it'll stay that way.
(Through our transparent curtains and I can see your eyes the widest they've ever been.)

The red shirt that I like and,
A locket around your neck.
You're the girl I won't forget.
