I walked to school every day with a boy up the street
Our mothers declared we were friends, so it was to be
He listed by number the girls he had kissed
And how sweet they tasted and how soft their lips
When we got to school I hid out by the playground to read

O boy, just hold on, boy
O, remember this day
If ever you find it, boy, never let love get away

The first time she noticed me my face was crimson with shame
My quest for attention had led to them laughing again
A couple years later she leaned in to whisper
Compassion and kindness, as I went to kiss her
She suddenly vanished...

Oh, the ache...

O boy, just hold on, boy
O, remember this day
If ever you find it, boy, never let love get away

I waited so long
When I finally found you
I was a madman, drunk with desire
You were a lifeboat, I was on fire
Now that it's over
The damage is seen
All I can say is
Could you forgive me?

Boy, just hold on, boy
Remember this pain
If ever you find it again, boy
Give her room to learn to love you and maybe she'll stay...
