You're the only one who comprehends me
I tell them my spirits lift with every card you send me
I'm trying to be the perfect boy the one you wished for
And I know it's like a dream when I hold you in my arms

Don't turn your pretty face away
I dream about you when I sleep, yeah
I could wait a thousand lifetimes just to see you smile
You are always on my mind
You are always on my mind

Sometimes its so hard, too complicated
Until I can reflect on all the years I've waited
To find you, now nothing matters more than being with you
Not the distance or the miles between my heart I give to you

Don't turn your pretty face away
I dream about you when I sleep, yeah
I'd wait a thousand lifetimes just to see you smile
You are always on my mind
You are always on my mind

    This is the sweetest song! Who'd think that a punk covered in tattoo's could be so sweet? "I'm trying to be the perfect boy The one you've wished for And now it's like a dream when i hold you in my arms" I wish that a boy would write a song this nice for me!

    This song reminds me of my first love.... It's a great song, but not something you'd expect from the same band that wrote "Yesterday's Headlines" A new twist in their arsenal.

    I would havta agree w/lagwagonlover and saves the day girl...the only difference...not to brag or anything lol is that my b/f knows how to play this song, and he sang it to me :):) This song is so sweet :)

    it's about Rachael Perry a former VJ on Much Music and now a corespondent for VH1.

    such an amazing song, i love a band like good riddance. they mix socially conscience lyrics with great love songs like this.

    a political band that isn't political 100% of the time, what more can you ask for?

    Not only can Good riddance write the most intelligent political songs. But their love songs never come off as cheesy. "I've waited a million lifetimes just to see you smile" I'm not a chick but these lyrics stand out to me to

    i also love good riddance and especially for the lyrics they write. I agree with josie up there, bands that can write intelligent political songs and still leave rooom for feeling, by writing songs like this one, really motivate me.
