We were friends
And that’s how it begins
We moved slowly through a park one summer night

I’ve been meaning to tell you that I’ve been somewhat upset
Not that it is important, but I haven’t done it yet
I know better than to fall in love, if that’s what you call it
I wouldn’t bet the farm, but I guess that’s what I did

Your know I’m lost without you
I’m paralyzed
That’s why I’ve got to
Repair my whine
In the nick of time
Shoo the mime
I know I ought to

Now and then I want more than a friend
And I’m willing to destroy what isn’t mine

Why why why?
