first met my girlfriend in the park one April day
she was sitting underneath my favorite tree
I had to say "you can't sit there"
She laughed at me you know I couldn't help but like her
told her so
and then I guess I must've closed my eyes and kissed her
How did she get here?
Why today appear?
How can she be here?
Minutes stretched to days to months
we never left that spot
I swear they had to mow around us
carved our names into the tree and pledged that we'd be there
One day we're talking
suddenly she's got to play a game of hide and seek
I close my eyes and count to ten
Someone tell me please
how long must I wait for her to be a good friend to her now?
I can only count so high; the numbers just run out
but I won't stop until they do
(one million and one...one million and two...etc.)
Looked high and low, looked all around but couldn't find her
climbed a tree--nothing to see but people looking at me funny
called her name
I swear I spent the next three years just trying to find her
thought I saw her once or twice but I'm not sure
one thing I know though:
when she goes
How can I be there
when I can't find her anywhere?
How can I be
unless she is
why should I be
