you were in college, working part-time, waiting tables,
left a small town, never looked back.
i was a flight risk, with a fear of falling,
wondering why we bother with love
if it never lasts.
you say, can you believe it,
as we're lying on the couch,
the moment i can see it, yeah yeah,
i can see it now.
do you remember we were sitting there, by the water,
you put your arm around me, for the first time,
you made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter,
you are the best thing, that's ever been mine.
