about

This one's about feeling a lifelong connection with someone you haven't known forever, and being gullible for fun!

lyrics

I met you when I was two
We were just tots, we laughed a lot
When I turned three, you turned to me
& said you'd bought a brand new yacht
& i believed you
even though I knew it wasn't true

When we were five we ran so fast, we felt so alive
& at your sixth birthday party you had a pinata that was filled with smarties, & i remember asking you why there wasn't any chocolate- & you said there was a world shortage of the product
& I believed you
even though I knew it wasn't true

When I was seven I rejected heaven
& you told me that you'd been a bee in another life
& that I must've been a really pretty, special flower
& i believed you
even though I knew it wasn't true
