Balance Beam Lyrics

by Blue October

I haven't been quite the same
So sure the story of my life would never change
But in a bright eyed way
I rinsed out the soap in my eyes and wrote a song that I'm about to sing
Cause its about a girl
That I hardly even know
So this is not another love song
Just a list of things that I should know
And everyone should know that...

[Chorus]
One: You've got to take it kind of slowly
Two: You've got to hurry up and make your move
Three: You've got to tell her that shes pretty
Four: You've got to be the perfect gentleman
When you shake the wall, you've got to make it bend
Yeah, you've got to show her that shes the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.

We took a walk in the rain
I suggested, she confessed
There's a heart nearby to cast that shade
Stay cool but I'm giddy like a school boy
You've got to handle with care, this is not a toy
Gradually we touched
Though our clothes were wet
We sat and smiled
I never thought I could smile so much
The first kiss always says the most

[Chorus]
One: You've got to take it kind of slowly
Two: You've got to hurry up and make your move
Three: You've got to tell her that shes pretty
Four: You've got to be the perfect gentleman
When you shake the wall, you've got to make it bend
Yeah, you've got to show her that shes the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.

Everyone should know that

[Chorus]
One: You've got to take it kind of slowly
Two: You've got to hurry up and make your move
Three: You've got to tell her that shes pretty
Four: You've got to be the perfect gentleman
When you shake the wall, you've got to make it bend
Yeah, you've got to show her that shes the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.

Some kind of fairy tale.
Some kind of fairy tale.

Everyone should know that.
