lyrics

A couple of boys running around made a catapult to get a brick off the ground. Walkie-talkies humming in the neighborhood. We were smart enough to look for trouble where we could. You were the friend that I called best. We were far enough ahead to get bored of all the rest. Finding adventure in the bending of the rules. Until, you moved away, and Iowa seemed so cruel. So, in comes the music and math whiz. We were goofy. We were awkward, never seemed to fit. We were imagining a world. We were imagining a more vibrant world. You were the friend that I called best. We were far enough ahead to get bored of all the rest. Finding adventure in the bending of the rules. Until, I fell away and God seemed so cruel. When I fell away, I fell hard. In the corner of the room, solely focused on the art. So, when I caught a glance at your pages, I found myself a brother that no distance changes. You were the friend that I called best. We didn’t care to be ahead and be boring like the rest. Finding adventure in the bending of the rules. But, when our lives took on other shapes, I think you found me dull. But, I thank you ‘cause you introduced my love and me, my honeybee keeper, mother of my little stinker. Oh, free-thinker, you’re the woman for me. It took time to see you. It took you time to see me. I just knew that when I was with you, part of me was happy, because you’re smart in all the ways that I am not. You’ve no care for following consensus. I think you thought I was bluffing. I think you thought this was a trick. But, you are the friend that I call best. It seems we’ve never been ahead, but that’s never been our quest. Finding adventure in the bending of the rules. Well, I’m holding on with both hands, ‘cause life can be so cruel. But not with you.
