My heart beats harder and harder for you
as the days go on. I've never met a weakness like this
I had a bullet proof vest around my heart 
but she came with heavy artillery. 

Have you ever met someone that took 
you by complete surprise?
She was like having christmas and 
a tree full of presents on the forth of july.
Something you never knew was coming
She was my unexpected storm 
Now I can't get her voice out of my head
I hate my cell phone now because it reminds
me of who I used to call and text everyday.

I never let anyone inside
she was the only exception
And now I can't stop wishing things could be different
like an athlethe that didn't win gold
I'm mourning what I never got to finish
It's like she bugged me with a virus 
I'm crashing now 
I say hello and goodbye at the same time
when I look in her eyes. 

I guess falling for friends is in fashion now.
I'm wear my feelings on my sleeves but she
was never much for what was in style
So she doesn't get the impact she has on me. 
Her prescense karate chopped and powed my exsistane
I wish I would have known than she was coming 
because maybe than I could have called for some back up 
maybe I could have resisted. 

There is a bomb ticking inside of me 
and I am picturing my demise. 
You see falling for her wasn't a part of the plan.
but that's how it ended up just like two lovers
leaving foot prints on the sand she left them on my heart. 

I wish I could tranform into anything else but me right
now because I can't deal with feeling tossed and chopped
like a salad. I served my heart to her and she chewed it up. 
I must have been her favorite ice cream I was so delicious. 

Ugh man no more surprises for me, I wish surprises were never invented.
