lyrics

i’ve known it since your first time in junior high
when katie pat called you a slut, i almost cried
 
i think about you day and night
i want to hold you in the morning light
 
it’s you and only me
if you’re lonely too
i just might be the one you need
 
i caught you smoking sneaking
bourbon in your coke
i watch you shake your pom poms
for those football jokes
jenny kramer says you blew the jv line
i don’t care what you do
i’m gonna make you mine
just give me time i will be
 
you and only me
if you’re lonely too
i just might be the one you need
like I need you
can’t you see
if you loved me too
what a world this would be
just you and only me
 
they say you’re easy but i know you’re complicated
you’ve never found the one
after all the boys you’ve dated
all those guys i’ve hated
and still I’ve waited
and i’ll go right on waiting
and you’ll go right on dating
 
when no one’s watching i see you look so sad
i know you’re missing
the best friend you’ve never had
then some jerk arrives to kill my hope and you
turn and kiss him with your mouth wide open
i see him groping but
there’s somewhere deep inside
that no one’s touched
a little place behind your pride
where i lay crushed
i love you so much

it’s you and only me
if you’re lonely too
i just might be the one you need
like i need you

don’t you see
if you loved me too
what a world this would be
just you and only me

can’t you see
lonely you and lonely me

just you and me
thank god for make believe
