lyrics

We were those kids that ran away
All full of thoughts just north of proper
Who ended 7 miles from home
It got dark as we paraded
Down the street
And though the woods on our own
We made a pact and then we wrote a list
We held hands and then we shared a kiss
Then we promised that we’d never
Let the other face it all alone…but

Chorus:
If you keep ignoring me
And you start avoiding me
Then I’ll know that something went wrong
That’s when I’ll write this stupid parody
Some chords and simple melody
So you can sing along
It’s your song
ahh oooo
Here is where you sing along
ahh oooo
‘Cause it’s your song

We went to college in the summer
Far away in different cities
Said you’d call, I said I’d try to write
I started learning and then meeting some boys
It didn’t seem just right
I’ll keep our pact, I memorized the list
And I’ll remember how I need your kiss
But I can’t seem to get ahold
Of you baby tonight…so

We made a promise that we’d make a home
And that we’d carry on

I have my job in New York
And now you live in California
Haven’t spoken since we were 19
I hear you’re doing real well
But I wonder if you think of me
Our pact is what I have always missed
Sealed with love, sealed with a kiss
The promise when we ran away
Torn up like this paper list…’cause
