LyricsEdit

The summer crawled by indetectably
And then I saw you looking down to me
And your earrings sparkled in the noonday sun
And though it's very true that I love everyone
With every ounce of energy left in me
I love you especially because

I saw you, coming through
The screen door on the second floor
Up on the balcony

It was hard to even see you at all
Because the air was thick with alcohol
So I kept on rubbing my eyes
For all the good it did me
For all the measurable good it did me
Let the years come and take away my memory
I will not forget the shock that ran through me when

I saw you, coming through
The screen door on the second floor
Up on the balcony
