Memento Amor

Written by: Tevin Ta

Just the other night, I had a dream about you and I 
Redefined love, whenever I look deep into your eyes 
At this point in time, no words could even describe 
The mesmerizing feeling that has engulfed me deep inside 
In this very dream of mine 

So I will try to explain as best as I can to you 
To capture true emotions in a clear view 
Like a camera do, 
As we pan back to Myers Park High School 

Can you see me standing out in the crowd 
Constantly thinking with a lit cigarette 
Contemplating phrases of what to say 
And how I'm feeling toward such a beautiful brunette 

Having every line rehearsed 
I'd say it to you today 
Then you looked into my eyes 
And they all just slipped away 

In class, sitting right next to you 
You asked me why my tongue's so tied 
I've tried to make sense of all these things I feel inside 
I've been searching for the perfect words to say 
Through the eyes, they've been said a thousand times 
But they will mean more today.
