I haven't been quite the same,
So sure the story of my life would never change.
But in a bright-eyed way, I rinsed out the soap in my eyes,
And wrote a song that I'm about to sing.

Cause its about a girl
That I hardly even know.
So this is not another love song.
Just a list of things that I should know,
And everyone should know.


1. You gotta take it kinda slowly
2. you gotta hurry up and make your move
3. You gotta tell her that shes pretty
4. You gotta be the perfect gentelman.

When you shake the wall, you gotta make it bend.
You gotta show her that
She's the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.

We took a walk in the rain.
I suggested, she confessed:
"There's a heart nearby to cast that shame."

Stay cool.
But I'm giddy like a school boy.
You gotta handle with care:
This is not a toy.

Then gradually we touched.
And though our clothes were wet, we sat and smiled.
I never thought I'd smile so much
The first kiss always says the most.


I want to sing to you.

Eveyone should know that:
