Come on, come on, we're gonna get there
Come on, come on, we've gotta go
Come on, I know you're feeling better
i know you're feeling in control
i know you're feeling in control

We've got to be somewhere at 7
I know you have a dress to wear
I've found to a way to live forever
I found a place where no one cares

One look at you
I see your eyes so blue
You talked to me with such sincerity
Oh how i wanted you

Come on, come on, come on lets get there
i know you're seeing it in my eyes
I'm going to be someone tomorrow
You're gonna be something tonight

I look at you, i see it in your eyes
You talk to me with such sincerity
Oh how i wanted you

We know we cannot last forever
Such crazy feelings you inspire
I'll have to runoff by tomorrow
i never could put out this fire

I know you know, its going nowhere
And I feel the hurt from miles and miles
Cause i want to be with you forever
I want to be your precious stone
I'll never be your precious stone

    General CommentPete actually wrote this song about me after meeting me on November 12, 2009. He was doing a show at Push Ultra Lounge in St. Petersburg, Florida. I had purchased tickets for myself and an underaged friend of mine. After we found out she couldn't go in, we waited for him outside of his tour bus before the show (which started at 7.)

    He came out. I was so excited to see him, since I had been a fan of his since 2001. I remembered seeing the music video for "Strange Condition" so even though I was incredibly excited, I tried to be really calm, introduce myself, and explain our situation to him to see if there was anyway he could get her inside.

    He explained that there was nothing he could do, which was disappointing to say the least.

    I gave him a burnt CD with a thank you note written on it thanking him making music.

    I got my picture with him, and met his entire band. They were all incredibly nice and down-to-earth. Especially his drummer, who I think was thrilled to be recognized from the music video "Close."

    My friend left.

    Pete walked back outside and saw me sitting on a ledge by myself.

    He looked at me like he felt sorry for me.
    "Are you coming?" he said.
    "Yeah, I'm just waiting for my other friend to get here."
    "...Okay. See you in there."

    I have blue eyes and I was practically begging him to let her inside.
    I think he felt guilty that he didn't let her in.
    I hope he liked the CD I gave him.
    I wrote on the CD for him to call me if he liked my voice and wanted to use me as another "Scarlett Johannson."

    I never got a call.
    But this song came out.
    And I had to wonder.

    Pete, if you're reading this, can you please confirm or deny?
    Either way, you gave us a great night of memories.

    I wish I could be your Precious Stone...

    General CommentThis song was released on Facebook the day after my boyfriend broke up with me, so I read a lot of pertinence in the lyrics. It's about having a brief, intense affair with someone -- or even, just to an extent, unrequited love -- and knowing that it's not going to last or work out, even though you want it to.
