deep inside my eye, there is part of you
you still look the same, though you're upside down
so much time has passed since i saw you last

an apple pie, the number pi
i studied you in math class
i did all my work but never got your digits

take a number like 5, times 10, times 10 again
500 miles of apple orchards to defend

deep inside my core, there is part of you
you still look the same, though you're grown up now
why are you still in my eye?
will your memory ever die?

an apple tree, a family tree
we'll plant ours together
the roots will hold forever and forever

what can i say? i won't delay, i'm leaving today
500 miles of apple orchards in my way

a mackintosh, a macintosh
you messaged me all winter
i'd write replies and still feel like a loser

pack an apple to eat, go hit the street, get on your feet
500 miles of apple orchards 'til we meet

i'm taking a stand
with apple in hand
i pull up my sleeve
it's time that i make like an apple tree and leave

    General Commentyea thats the great thing about this band because everyones had a crush in a class their in and they get no work done because they spend their time trying ,unsuccessfully , to get with this girl but it goes on to say that this ccrush, i think hes talkin about his first one, became part of his core being. because noone ever forgets a first crush but this crush last for a long time and hinders his life making him unable to leave and in the end he does get over it but not after getting a piece of the apple orchard

    General CommentIt's more than just a crush;
    He falls in love with a girl at school when they are little. He ends up talking to her years later, online (on his Mac.. get it? :P), after she or he has moved away.. And he still likes her and feels like a dork replying to her. But, the distance doesn't matter, because he's FINALLY going to act on it... Something he's never did before.

    So it is a crush, and online relationships/reunions, and finally going for who you love. So it's even more awesome.
