lyrics

lush as the trees,
smooth like the shore.
already seen it all,
still, I want to see more;
this may be
as close as I'll get for a while.
pretty before,
beautiful after.
if I could,
I'd skip ahead a few chapters
to when I'm familiar with
the taste of your smile.

so far,
so good.
I think about you
more than I should.

you probably say that to all the boys.
still, my heart shakes when you say it to me.
sugar and spice, with a dash of salt.
wasn't quite ready for that full-frontal assault,
but I'll fight on, 'cause all is fair
in love and war, and half the battle is getting there.
if I've made it this far, then why turn back now?

you're my kind of girl,
guess I'm that kind of man,
yet even I blush
when I think of our plans.
we've got hungry hearts
and a thirst for adventure.
I like your name in my mouth,
feels good on my tongue,
but we can't let five letters
have all the fun.
oh, I've had the best,
but I'm ready for better.

so good,
yet so far.
get out of my dreams
and into my arms.

you probably say that to all the boys.
still, my heart shakes when you say it to me.
sugar and spice, with a dash of salt.
wasn't quite ready for that full-frontal assault,
but I'll fight on, 'cause all is fair
in love and war, and half the battle is getting there.
if I've made it this far, then why turn back now?

you probably say that to all the boys.
still, my heart shakes when you say it to me.
sugar and spice, with a dash of salt.
wasn't quite ready for that full-frontal assault,
but I'll fight on, 'cause all is fair
in love and war, and half the battle was getting here.
if I've made it this far, then why turn back now?
