Can you see I'm not afraid?

Can you see it's not my fault?

I can show you anything

That contains a slight chance of rain

These open eyes are fog lights

To the candy bars that are shaped like fries

No more sitting around

I'm gonna calm back down

To the sound of being free

In a moment, to not mean a thing

You're married to another woman

Or engaged

Whatever that would of meant

To me if you were still my attention

I'm still so attracted, but this whole time

You were just a tom boy

Not flirting "at all"

Didn't even like me

I'm not the funniest lack of slack to know

I'm just so glad to know you are not

Taken by a man

I'm too late for us though now

I'm in love with Rachael now

And you could of been my attraction

But I guess you don't swing that way

Unless you're bi

Is that the case?

I need to get over Rachael anyway

She ain't my babe

She's just an ex of Jader's now

So that don't make it O.K.
