I once asked you to hang with me
For a cup of bad coffee
And we laughed and we laughed until the time did pass
And the sun sank into the sky
And as we said goodbye
The stars shined so bright in your eyes
And the moon came out as I started to shout
It's been awhile since I felt all right

Months carried on it had been so long
Since I lost track of time
You read books in my bed
And you met all my friends
And I met your future instead
And one day you looked so sad
You said lately life's been pretty bad
So I tried and I tried almost every summer night
To make you feel all right

Then as time moved on
I met a boy with your breathe in his lungs
He said with his bleeding heart
That he had loved you from the start
And so many people said
That they could make you happy instead
And I didn't mean any harm
When I left you alone with the stars
It's just you don't need another fucking with your beautiful heart

Years passed by now you seem happy inside
With the outcome of your life
You have someone who would fly to the sun
And get all the shit you need done
I still see you sometimes
I'm so glad that you're alive
And I'll remember summer nights when you laughing by my side
And the stars shined in your eyes

Then the minutes slowed
When I saw you talking on a telephone
I was buying a gift for a friend
In a bookstore that you worked in
I wish that I could say
All the reasons why I went away
And always be blue
For the girl with the bumblebee tattoo
Thanks for saving me from a summer alone
