Between Me and You

“Between Me and You”

flicked a glance across the room
happened to land on you
startled by two blue skies
set in a pair of eyes
thoughts begin a rapid pace
I can’t let this go to waste
the same way as last year
where we met and don’t live near
so nothing ever happened between me and you
just my own fancies where I talked to you:
we were sitting in the treetops
staring in the sky
we were setting off the lights
on the Fourth of July
but nothing ever happened between
me and you
just my own fancies where I talked to you
casual friends after awhile
but I don’t message you at all
it was never meant to be
and it don’t mean anything
I hope those girls back in your town
count their blessings that abound
to have you at their side
to drown in sky blue eyes
cause nothing ever happened between me and you
just my own fancies where I talked to you:
we were laughing on the beach
where the water was warm
we were lying on the couch
waiting out the storm
nothing ever happened between
me and you
just my own fancies where I talked to you
I’d probably find a
million boys like you
and a thousand eyes that blue
but
I’d be hard pressed to
admit it to myself
that I almost wish you knew
that I almost talked to you
cause nothing ever happened between me and you
just my own fancies where I talked to you:
we were sitting in the treetops
staring in the sky
we were setting off the lights
on the Fourth of July —
we were laughing on the beach
where the water was warm
we were talking on the couch
waiting out the storm
nothing ever happened between me and you
just my own fancies where I talked to you
I talked to you
I talked to you
I talked to you
Yeah I talked to you
in another world
