how important
all ages shows have been
to identity formation for me.
that night, you grasp and pull my wrist.
you grasp my wrist and pull me past,
imagining what we will do alone.
that night, a tree had fallen across the highway,
blocking our way home.
wet with rain, your hand on mine.
a breath of hesitation,
your skin that night.
you and i feel as if we
can escape calamity.
that night, you and i, seventeen,
make out.

    General CommentWow, this is incredible. In my opinion the lyrics alone, when read as a poem, are actually superior to the song. When I read it, it creates the tickeling butterfly feeling of teenage love in my tummy. :) and the part about shows being important is just perfect. I sure wish this song would come true for me...

    General CommentI love this. Perfectly describes that sweet, oblivious innocence of youth. Escaping calamity through making out.
