I've told this story a hundred times
Memorized everything line by line
It always begins from out of the blue
Weaving a tale between me and you
I've told this story a hundred times
Like by telling it more I'll make it mine

I've told this story a hundred times
To myself, all alone, mid-nighttime
Practicing nonstop so when I tell you
I'll have it perfected all the way through
I've told this story a hundred times
Trying not to imagine your face, just mine

I've told this story a hundred times
And it feels like a longer and longer climb
It won't be the same when I tell you for real
More factors and fears I'll have to conceal
Whether we truly can stay the same friends
Or the little things I love will soon reach their ends

I've told this story a hundred times
I've told this story a hundred times
I've told this story a hundred times

Like by telling it perfectly, things will be fine
