there he was standing there at the foot of the stair
with his head hung low
as she observed from a perch high above
at the edge of a picture window

and the thing was decided; she'd made up her mind
but he did not know
so she waited awhile and smiled to herself
as he turned to go

she said "i'm gonna chase him down"
she said" i'm gonna turn him back around"

there he was walking home, all confounded, alone
with his head hung low
he was cursing himself for allowing the flower
to bloom and grow
she was good, he was bad, that was it
that was all that there was to know
why would he entertain silly thoughts
of a thing he could never know

he said "i'd only bring her down, and she'll do better
without me around"

then she stepped out of nowhere with a finger raised
she said "shut up and listen closely to every word
i have to say / you're the one i've wanted from the moment i first realized
the world was colored shades of grey / not covered up
in black and white
and you are good and you are bad
like every man i've ever known
and i think i'm in love with you
i'm not afraid to tell you so"

"and now you know"
