I had love so unrequited,
I had love so uninvited,
All the lines that I recited,
Were the lines I never used.
I had hoped to love you sweetly.
You had hoped to end it neatly.
I showed up; You did not meet me.
I was hopeless and confused.
Spring had sprung; I got stung.
All the air when from my lungs
Speakers blast a false forecast
‘Cause I thought
The dog days were done.
Summer came before we knew it,
If I had a chance, I blew it.
Kept you in the coop. You flew it.
Slur the words and sing along.
Come the fall I found a lady,
Still I kept a hold of maybes,
Saw me cry just like a baby,
Only for to write this song.
Winter came and I felt slain
And then I nearly lost my brain.
Went back home
And hearts were broken,
Hopin’ we could stop this train.
Spring has sprung again.
I know I’ve worn you thin.
This time I call you friend.
The sun is up
And spring has sprung again.
It’s been a year. I haven’t known you.
Acting like one day I’d own you.
Nothing could I give or loan you
‘cept the words, I’m sorry for.
Hoping I could keep you flattered
Knowing now what was the matter
Ate the icing, chucked the batter
Belly aching on the floor.
Darling buds. The blossoms bloom
And everything comes out like new.
I face the floods
The rains bring through,
Just so I can sing with you.
