lyrics

Something that struck me
When you burst out through the door
Was that I know that nothing cuter
Has cried that way before

It’s selfish to think
That you’d be in less pain
If you cut communication
And waltz’d over my way

None of the others know you in the same way (Woo-hoo)
You’re a hidden gem and your eyeliner is stained (Woo-hoo)
And I could never bring myself to say that I adore you

Every time your lips part
The aurora borealis
Sets sail with me to greater things
And it’s a work of art

If you would just cut ties
With the toxic implications
Then maybe you’d find
That you feel like I do

None of the others know you in the same way (Woo-hoo)
You’re a hidden gem and your eyeliner is stained (Woo-hoo)
If I could just bring myself to say that I adore you
But I could never bring myself to say that I adore you
