lyrics

There's a girl I knew
From the time that I was two to twenty-four
She was coolheaded, bighearted
Never asked, but always wanted more
She was up for every nomination
Loved by all her congregation
Always told her voice was angel's song
She was sweet and clever
She knew how to do it better
all along

Can you catch a whisper here, a whisper there? It's so unfair
Oh, can you catch a whisper as she pulls her skinny fingers through her hair?

She said "tell me what it's like to fall in love
I've been thinking and it just doesn't add up
You lose your logic to the fervor
Of your passions as they further
The intentions we reserve for the insane;
I prefer my solitary counterpane"

There's a boy I saw
Who would hang on every heart that passed him by
He was bowled over, blindsided
Every time a new one caught his eye
He was all romance and tragedy
He reminisced so longingly
But time and time again, he'd cry defeat
He was smooth and smitten
With each pretty little kitten
He would meet

Can you catch a whisper here, a whisper there? It's so unfair
Oh, can you catch a whisper as he pulls his skinny fingers through his hair?

He said "tell me what it's like to fall in love
'Cause it sounds like something I'd like something of
You lose your logic to the fervor
Of your passions as they further
The intentions we consider somewhat touched;
I don't know if I could ever get enough"

Tell me what it's like to fall in love
I've been thinking and it just doesn't add up
You lose your logic to the fervor
Of your passions as they further
The intentions we consider somewhat touched
I don't know if I could ever get enough
I don't know if it could ever be enough
