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.
