"Getting To Know You Well" as written by and Jon Lee Grant Nicholas....
Turn back another page
Reading the words she sent today
Feeling my capsize
Gazing at photographs of you
Hearing the baby cry
Then watching his mother try to soothe
Living the terminal lies
Hoping my dreams come true tonight

Getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
Just wish I could break your shell
I'm getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
I think we might be okay

Chewing on ice cream cones
Seeing the sun shine down to you
Out in a rowing boat
Seeing the seagull spy for food
Pulling the daisy chains
Losing myself again with you
Wish it could stay like this
Cause yesterday went away too soon

Getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
Just wish I could break your shell
I'm getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
I think we might be okay
Getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
Just wish I could break that shell
I'm getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
I think we might be okay

Trying hard to find a reason
With every step I take I'm sinking
I wish that I could say I'm coming
With every breath I'm choking

Waking up late today
Sleeping in clothes that stick to you
Hearing the plane fly by
Staring at paper clouds and hills

Getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
Just wish I could break your shell
I'm getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
I think we might be okay
Getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
Just wish I could break that shell
I'm getting to know you well (Getting to know you well)
I think we might be okay

    General CommentThis song inpired the title for 'Yesterday went too soon', A) because it says 'cause yesterday went away too soon and B) its lyrical content fits very well with YWTS...Grant stated this btw.

    Its really in my opnion seeing someone you've been experiencing alot in life with go through some heavy times and just wont break through their shell and be free and open up, the person is getting to know them so much better and now just wants to break their shell thats holding them back..in otherwise let go and Live!
