You and me, all alone in the weather,
It's certainly never rained this hard
Creatively, I drew a picture on some paper,
I drew our names and, in the middle, was a heart.

I have a bag full of Polaroid pictures
Here's a funny one of us in the snow
Do you remember driving hours to get there,
And when we did, we wanted out of the cold?

If I came to your house
And I blew a kiss your way,
Would you come out?
I wrote down on your door step in a black felt pen
Thirteen hundred assets you have over them
I love you, and I want you back

Here's a pretty one of you with your hair up
Here's another on of us by the beach
I can't remember ever getting so sunburned
Love is a wonderful thing

Until your standing all alone in the weather
And every intelligent remark you should make
Is obviously not making things better
So she finally walks away

I left a number, note, my address and all my plans.
I prayed to God she would love me back,
But she's still not here

If I came to your house
And I blew a kiss your way,
Would you come out?
I wrote down on your door step in a black felt pen
Thirteen hundred assets you have over them.
I love you, and I want you back
I love you, and I want you back

Irrespective of how much it means to fall in love
It's always a great idea until the heart break comes
And changes your mind, like it did to mine

If I came to your house
And I blew a kiss your way,
Would you come out?
I wrote down on your door step in a black felt pen
Thirteen hundred assets you have over them.
I love you, and I want you back
I love you, and I want you back

    General Commenti think this song is about a couple thats broken up
    and the guys remembering all the good times they had together, and so he's thinking about going to her house and trying to win her back!

    General Commentthis is my fav ellington song

    its bit obvious

    they had a good relationship till they break up
    he wants her back after remembering all the good times they had together
    so he tries to win her back,but when he tries she rejects
    "I left a number, note, my address and all my plans.
    I prayed to God she would love me back,
    But she's still not here"

    but he stil tries....
