Us

I said I'm not a sweet person

You joked that I probably ate potato chips

For Valentine's Day and I laughed and agreed

But then you actually got me some.

Stalking through each other's iPods

You had way too much Beyoncé

You hadn't heard half the music on mine

A week later, it was all on yours

When the football jock broke my heart

You swore vengeance, baseball bat ready

Held me while I cried for hours

And let me stay the night with your arm around me

My parents and brother keep fighting

I fled to your house with routine tears

You held me again, covering my ears

Protecting me from all the screaming

Looking back, I shouldn't have been surprised

When you finally told me you loved me

But you shouldn't have been so nervous

Because I love you back
