I've been digging something up
Bet you thought I've been sleeping
Having trouble waking up
It's just the hours I've been keeping
Up in this attic all alone
The situation's unnerving
And while the candle's going out
Each weathered page I keep turning
Looking back, fundamental romance
Some are still around
Some went underground

Criticize all the letters I find in this tattered book
Please take a look
The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew
You'd always be my only one

I've been looking something up
It always seems to amaze me
That's just the way we used to dance
You never thought it was crazy
The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew
You'd always be my only one
Just you

The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew
You'd always be my only one
It always seems to amaze me
You never thought it was crazy

Looking back, fundamental romance, campus Romeo
But only you would know
I realize that you've waited so long for the cards to fall
And after all
The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew you'd always be my only one
The things I told you I never told anyone
And all this time you knew you'd always be my only one
