Balance Beam

I haven’t been quite the same
So sure the story of my life would never change
But in a bright-eyed way
I rinsed out the soap in my eyes
And wrote a song that I’m about to sing
Cause it’s about a girl that I hardly even know
So this is not another love song
Just a list of things that I should know
And everyone should know that

One: You gotta take it kinda slowly
Two: You gotta hurry up and make your move
Three: You gotta tell her that she’s pretty
And four: You gotta be the perfect gentleman
You shake the wall, you gotta make it bend, yeah
You gotta show her that she’s the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale

We took a walk in the rain
I suggested she confess
There’s a heart nearby to cast that shade
Stay cool but I’m giddy like a schoolboy
You gotta handle with care, she is not a toy
And then gradually we touched
Although our clothes were wet we sat and smiled
I never thought I could smile so much
But, the first kiss always says the most

One: You gotta take it kinda slowly
Two: You gotta hurry up and make your move
Three: You gotta tell her that she’s pretty
And four: You gotta be the perfect gentleman
You shake the wall, you gotta make it bend, yeah
You gotta show her that she’s the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale

Yeah, I wanna sing to you
And everyone should know that

One: You gotta take it kinda slowly
Two: You gotta hurry up, make your move
Three: You have to tell her that she’s pretty
And four: You gotta be the perfect gentleman
Shake the wall, fucking make it bend, yeah
You gotta show her that she’s the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale

She’s my fairy tale
She’s some kind of fairy tale
She’s some kind of fairy tale
Everyone should know that
