The Beginning Of

First day
Seventh grade
I'd never switched schools before
I stared
At the floor
Then I looked to the corner

Cute eighth grader
I loved his hair
Wanted to see it close up
His arm was broken
I didn't know it
But
It was the beginning of,

Something perfect
Something worth all
Of the heartbreak put together
Something breathless
Something so strong
Something so unpredictable
Something perfect

One year
Later, I
Actually forgot his name
We met
Formally
While we were playing those games

You teased me about
My lisp, wow
I liked the way you smiled
You made me laugh
I didn't know how
But
This was the beginning of:

Something perfect
Something worth all
Of the heartbreak put together
Something breathless
Something so strong
Something so unpredictable
Something perfect

It'd been a rough six months
I needed a night out
I ran into you by chance
Hey, where have you been, boy?
Hey, did you get taller?
Well, sure, I would love to dance

Now
You take my hand
Walk me to lunch
Like every day, all the time
You love my laugh
I love your touch
This may be the beginning of
Something perfect...
