“*ssociated”

it was a monday afternoon,
i was waiting for you early and then she walked by.
and whatever i was thinking, it went chasing after her.
but i don’t know why.
why i couldn’t say a word my tongue was laced up like my sneakers,
don’t you know i tried.
can’t stop seeing her walking by and she didn’t even see me, no.
i don’t know why.

’cause i don’t know anything about her,
don’t think i can live without her,
i don’t even know her name.
and i don’t know if she’s *ssociated,
i think that could be debated, right after i know her name.

my friend said, “son, it’s understood that this happens with some frequency.
you should think this through.”
yeah, we heard she was well known,
and this would not be out of sequence for a boy like you.
as for the state of my well-being,
i appreciate your interest.
but, just hear my side.
she’s not like all the other girls,
yes i really think she’s different, no.
soon you can decide.

’cause you don’t know anything about her,
don’t think you can live without her,
you don’t even know her name.
and you don’t know if she’s *ssociated,
you think that could be debated, right after you know her name.

’cause i don’t know everything about her,
know that i can live without her,
i don’t even know her name.
and i don’t know if she’s *ssociated,
she thinks that could be debated, right after i know her name.
