Part of me is forever laughing with the girls in the street,
Big dreams in our minds and gravel under our feet.
Small town blues and water tower love
Will eternally haunt all the streets that we drove.
Late nights and early sunsets
Are the times I don’t ever want to forget –
All dressed up with nowhere to go,
Who’d have guessed we’d ever reach this low?
We meet outside the school, at half past three –
I smile at you, and you smile at me.
My life is nearly over, but yours is just beginning –
I thought I was losing, but now I can see that I’m winning.
And I love this life that we’re living,
And I love this lie that we’re telling;
I love this all so much –
I love you, don’t you know?
