took way to long
but youll find me here
dont wanna be the boy who only ever wishes
stay up to late and watch mtv
theyll show that dumb shit for the hundred thousand times now
but ill always turn it off
and you holds so far away
but tonight youll stay
untill im asleep
tucked in so tight so far from light nothing could ever be as perfect as tonight but when i wake
you will be gone and i will be alone but to night youll stay until im asleep
i really cant explain and who would understand i never would have thought that this could be so crushall
even what you do the things i never knew i cant predict the fact that im supose to watch out and the car keys in your hand
but to night youll stay untill im asleep tucked in so tight so far from light nothing could ever be as perfect as tonight but when i wake you will be gone and ill be alone but to night youll stay untill im sleep
four more years who knows where will be im not watching anymore and ill have to sleep alone and wonder where you are and what your doin

    General Commenthello there. bob here. a friend of mine directed me to this site...I wrote this song and since a few of the lyrics above are not quite right, I thought I'd set the record straight. it goes:

    it took way too long, but you're finally here. I don't want to be the boy who only ever wishes. we'll stay up too late, and watch MTV. they'll show "the lovecats" for the hundred thousandth time now. we could always turn it off. and your home's so far away. but tonight you'll stay until I'm asleep. tucked in so tight, so far from night. nothing will ever be as perfect as tonight. and when I wake, you will be gone, and I'll be alone, but tonight you'll stay until I'm asleep. I really can't explain, and who would understand? I never would have thought that this could be so crucial. you know what to do: the things I never knew. I can't predict the paths that I'm supposed to walk down, but you've always got them down, and there's car keys in your hand. In four more years, who knows where we'll be? you may not want me anymore. every night, I'll slepp alone and wonder where you are, and what you're doing.

    (inset choruses into appropriate places.)

    I feel the need to apologize for the somewhat obvious rhyme scheme. sorry.

    General CommentIt's cool; we all make mistakes. I think this song's meaning is fairly obvious, so I won't say anything about it. I'd like to see more Pollen lyrics on here because they rock...rocked...whatever.
