lyrics

new but familiar
i tried to tell you that we had met before
a drunken exchange
i learned your first name
you promised you would call
a week went by, i was proud but shy
scared of rejection, scared to see
you followed through, table for two
i lift my gaze and our eyes meet…
you're in my thoughts now
the longer you linger the more i wish you'd stay
pluck at my heartstrings
you make my world sing, i want to hear you play
i met your folks, hope against hope
that someday you'll get to meet mine
forget that town, their catholic frowns
remember that you make me smile

it's too soon to know for sure
but i think i've finally found the love of my life
this world is cruel, my dear
but it all makes sense when i have you by my side

don't mind the flat tires
don't mind the walk home
i know that you'll be there
and when my world breaks
you've got the duct tape
it's how you show you care
the months go by
we live and die
you watch me struggle, help me grow
and you change too, as boys must do
i look at you, and i just know…

it's too soon to know for sure
but i think i've finally found the love of my life
this world is cruel, my dear
but it all makes sense when i have you by my side
