"Consider This A Thank You"

I don’t want to sound clichéd here
But I don’t want this to come out wrong now
There is something in your eyes, Girl
And I want to make it mine
The stars, oh, how they shine

I don’t want to sound too sappy
I don’t want to sound so darn depressed
But there is something here between us
That I just can’t live without
It tosses me around

Please don’t take this the wrong way
But those other songs on your radio
They weren’t meant for you
The way this one was

Just like teardrops in August
Mopped up by friendships from June
If you cry out my name
I’ll sing this hopeful tune
Even if I’m not there
When you’re up in your room
You can fade away with headphones in
And know this song’s for you
And you alone

I don’t want to sound too literal
But I don’t think I can work a metaphor here
Because there’s something in this beauty
That my wordplay can’t describe
No matter how hard I try

I don’t want to sound too indie
But I don’t want to sound over-produced
It’s a balance game I’m playing
A crooked path through all my doubts
Until this gets to you somehow

Please don’t take this the wrong way
But those other songs on your radio
They weren’t meant for you
The way this one was

Just like teardrops in August
Mopped up by friendships from June
If you cry out my name
I’ll sing this hopeful tune
Even if I’m not there
When you’re up in your room
You can fade away with headphones in
And know this song’s for you
And you alone

I don’t want to sound clichéd here
Well, I guess I managed to mess that one up

Just like teardrops in August
Mopped up by friendships from June
If you cry out my name
I’ll sing this hopeful tune
Even if I’m not there
When you’re up in your room
You can fade away with headphones in
And know this song’s for you

As we sing and we dance
The air smells of perfume
I will sing you these words
We will summon the tune
It’s my soft tone that lets you know
That these words are true
And I hope you keep those headphones in
And know this song’s for you
And you alone
