They met one warm July, found a shared love of philosophy
And every night for a week they debated Camus and Satre over coffee
But Aiden wasn't looking for romance
And Lesa was going to Paris for a year
Both had just gotten out of relationships
Felt too cynical anyway

Flash forward 12 months later
They've kept in touch sporadically
Lesa's back in Chicago, she's thinking
They're just friends
Hours of talking, it's 5:00am
Aiden leans in for a kiss
Lesa's laughing, she's out of practice
Isn't sure how this works anymore

It felt to her just a little like love
Could he be the one she was dreaming of

Three months later the differences, they can't be ignored
He wants a life she can't give
But as the year went on
They couldn't stay away
He bought her a bike when hers was stolen
Brought soup when she was feeling sick
He was everything she needed but didn't know she wanted
Until now

He was everything she needed but didn't know she wanted
Until now

It felt to her sometimes like love
Could he be the one she was dreaming of

One night he confessed
His heart belonged to someone else
Though he didn't want her back
Lesa stopped daydreaming of houses by the sea
Adding letters to monograms

Aiden wanted her but not enough
How do you untangle the knots of the past
Lesa wanted him, but it wasn't enough
How do you untangle the knots of the past

He was everything she needed but didn't know she wanted
Until now
