lyrics

I lost you at the after party
Found you throwing rocks on the kerb
We sang Buddy Holly in the street all night
I felt so happy I could have died

Then you wrote your name in my notebook
I had to check you were not looking
The most impressive person I've ever met
And I put a question mark next to it

And I said that you're too young
To give up on optimism
And I turned away when you looked at me straight in the eye
I don't know what to do when you look at me in the eye

Do you remember the ride at night
Through the desert of New Mexico
Put my uncertain shoulder to the wheel
And watched the stars collide

I had a bad dream last night
That Paul Simon died
And when I woke up in the morning
I wanted to call you up and cry

And I said that you're too young
To give up on optimism
And I turned away when you looked at me straight in the eye
I don't know what to do when you look at me in the eye
