    she tries to play hard to get 

    but she cant

    she can hide in the day but the night betrays
    shes the only one who makes my home phone jingle
    shes the only one who drunk dials
    shes the only one whos ring smiles

    knock knock when the door just intime for the fireworks
    crack crack went the last of the black cats
    ugh ugh went the old man
    not yet went the quick prayer

    sparkly strands braided in her hair
    rubber bands on too pale wrists
    how on earth are those real
    public education aint said ’bout this

    whispered kiss me every time you hear a bang
    or a pop
    or a crackle

    and i did and i did and i did and i did
