I’ve been in love with every girl I know.
I told them all, but most of them said no.
So when The One said Yes, I nearly cried.
We loved for Seven Years, but then, she died.
They say that she was changed into a bird,
Which was the dumbest thing I’d ever heard
Until I saw her perched upon a tree.
She swayed me through the night, and sang to me.
