You can't see me peering through my glasses
You've been staring much too long
She walked away she walked away
Try to think of a better way to ask you to the promenade

The first time I met you, falsetto sighs
and the fire flies on dusty shoes and injured knees,
you turned and walked away
Subtract the bottom, add fractions on sleepy afternoons,
take one and pass them backwards, caught
you turned and smiled away

You can't see me peering through my glasses
You've been staring much too long
She walked away, you walked away
Try to think of a better way to ask you to the promenade

Sharing driveways with ? fence and your rollerskates
Next doors neighbors, backseat drivers, driving friends forever
4 months and 6 years later stroll through the ends of an empty hall
Contact is question now that we belong to separate crowds

In the hallway after school, I tried to play it cool
And you fell behind your friends
Something made me move
But my movement was too late as I slipped and hit the floor
When you helped me to my feet
Your face made me believe

You can't see me peering through my glasses
You've been staring much too long
She walked away she walked away
Try to think of a better way to ask you to the promenade

In the hallway after school, I tried to play it cool
And you fell behind your friends
Something made me move
But my movements were all wrong
You turned and walked away
Now I find myself alone singing songs and writing blues
And as the coronation starts I see you at promenade

You can't see me peering through my glasses
You've been staring much too long
She walked away she walked away
Try to think of a better way to let you do the promenade
