if you are the one
and i am a zero
together and side by side
we make a perfect ten

and i have settled
for two's
only to find that
i came second best to them

and i have had my share
of four's
but after a while
i knew what i had to look for

you, and really no,
we aren't numbers
we are not letters
and we are not names

but our hands fit together
like crayons in a box

together, and side by side
we make a perfect ten
because if i am a zero
and you are the one
i'd never leave your side.
