My best friend waits on the doorstep for me
But I'm sleeping with a girl that I never, ever see
Then she promises she'll buy me everything

But all I want's for her to pin her heart to me

Oh baby won't you pin your heart to me?
Oh baby won't you pin your heart to me?
Oh baby won't you please?

Sitting up all night I've been listening to your screams
There's never been a girl out there who could ever hurt my dreams
And then she promises she'll buy me everything
But all I want's for her to pin her heart to me

Oh baby won't you pin your heart to me?
Oh baby won't you pin your heart to me?
Oh baby won't you please?

So she waits there on the stairs at four o'clock
And I buy her some roses but I'm scared of what it costs

Then she promises she'll buy me everything
But all I want's for her to pin her heart to me

Oh baby won't you pin your heart to me?
Oh baby won't you pin your heart to me?
Oh baby won't you please?
Won't you please?
Won't you please?

    General CommentI’ve always thought this was a sweet song, but it was a little confusing until I filled in the gaps for what I think is the story here.

    The girl is obviously a good friend this guy never gets to see, but it seems that now she might be on the run in some kind of trouble and has asked to stay with him. She feels bad because he’s taking on a lot of risk by harboring her and he’s poor (afraid of what it costs to buy her roses), so she says she’ll pay for everything and buy him stuff to hopefully make things easier if he’ll let her stay with him. He doesn’t care about any of that (or her screaming nightmares) and just wishes she could be in love with him.

    Even if things are looking grim for them in that scenario, I have a strong feeling they will have a happy ending. :)
