I am counting stars, I am seeing ducks and dragons in the clouds
you are warm and understanding, I love that you listen well
I do not want change, I do not know what you mean to me
I can't tell you where to take this, what to make of me
I know I like your hands, your voice, the way I forget
what revolves around us when you make me laugh
I can pretend that you think I am beautiful
that you share half the fantasies hiding in my head
I like opening these experiences to you
God, to be your first kiss, to be the only one
you've ever let inside your arms
And I like your secret stories
I love the simple concern, your actual struggle for comprehension
as though what I say should make perfect sense, as though
what I say should be of importance to you.
I'll believe anything, anything you say.
I dream in and out in and out
keep you in my daily conversations
I'm glowing like I'm in love
I'm treating this with reason
oh how perfect we are now, and I'll remember,
I'll write it all down -- what you've done to me,
the way I'm counting on you.
You think, too, that people are cruel
you know how it can break a person down
& get them angry
maybe you'd understand my nightmares
my need to complain again and again and again
God, do you know what it's like to be listening to this?
"I just wanted you to know..."
how can I explain rare beautiful kind
I want to keep you in my life for years
show you my precious possessions
Jesus, for someone else to understand
the words in this song, the light at this hour
the melody when I saw this girl today
her face so sad and lovely
and I thought again, bruising over all my
friends and lovers, their faces now -- while we stumble
to our maturity -- how I look at them, god, all the time
and think They look so young so young
as though I'll never see these visages again
no lines, no wear, no innocence in dark retreat
I'll take you dancing through the rain, I'll sleep
in your car counting hours and halos: our weekend game.
Please say this will never end
We can base the relationship on anticipation
I'll take you out of your world and filter you into mine
Let this flicker overtake us
teach you how to live with barely any eye on certainty
teach you how to give your heart to mine
