lyrics

i once knew a girl who lived in the future
never more than friends but i was happy i knew her
due to all the things that i had learned through her
to her i was just a super nice guy
i never made her cry
how could i, hiding at the side lines?
i... was just another steady to... climb

she said, "remember
that night i got so tiny
and i crawled into your mind?
i walked around your body
and arrived at a surprise."
she said, "i thought it would be easy,
but your heart was hard to find.
i assumed it would be enormous
but it was of normal size.

i didnt mind, no
nah i was alright.
i realized, though,
it was your pride that i had liked."
the scene started fading
it was the end of the show
the front door was open
when it went out the
straight out the
window

i picked her up not with a car, but in my arms
safely relocating up and out of harms way
and even though i went so far the wrong way
she was alarmingly greatful
just to have
a guardian angel of sorts
but i was busy equating the difference i made so
i missed the only chance i had to say "oh...
yeah... you're welcome... you clearly mean a lot to me'

"oh wait, where are you going"
she said, "i'm sorry, but now i have to go home.
i'd like you to come with me, but its not for the faint of heart.
it's time you face the future on your own."

only you can control
what hasn't happened yet
but you can't escape fate in retrospect
