lyrics

You would always dominate Oak Harbor meets
As if to make up for my crushed esteem
People have a habit of running out of my life
But your loveliness maintains routine
You're the essence of my blanket fort, my unbruised rib,
Of my family and of my home
We're just two different people sharing some of our lives
In the summer, in a dewey gloam

You're a lightning clap of a person
Brimming character inside
In a picture-perfect, almost worth it
Novella in my mind
Can't say we're too similar
That's what makes it right
You heal the hurt but I hope you've heard
I won't fuck up this time

I keep all of our photos up, I keep all of our photos up and hanging
All of them within a colored frame
Our lawns are like two temples of a disjunctive Holy Land
Our Torah: A list of fifty-something names

You've given many presents to present: I feel
Like your presence helped me get along since
I found you in the throng
A little bit of fighting, and an oath you took
To remind me other girls think wrong thoughts so
My gift is my song

You're a lightning clap of a person
Brimming character inside
A picture-perfect, almost worth it
Novella in my mind
Can't say we're too similar
That's what makes it right
You heal the hurt but I hope you've heard
I won't fuck up this time
