Swing swing-a-ling swing-a-ling swing a ling are you down? Where are you now? hiding in the grass in the moss colours so green just you and me, staring at them trees I don’t need anything else on this warm sunny day but my bike, your blue sweater, and you Riding around this whole town good friends we will see, walking down the street. Come get your fill if you will, Why did you lick my spoon? Lets chase the afternoon, Or go back to staring at them trees... I don’t need anything else on this warm sunny day, but my bike, your blue sweater, and you. Got a little scared when I was all by myself But you were right by my side The moment I started to cry... I don’t need anything else on this warm sunny day but my bike, your blue sweater and you, and you, and you Swing swing-a-ling swing-a-ling swing a ling are you down? Where are you now?

Walking down these city streets I can taste blood in my mouth Split my lip again, thinking about you Wanna call you wanna scream out loud that I miss you, I miss you, my god I miss you But it seems to me that I mislead you A girl can dream of a perfect life I’m sorry for what I said to you But I was doing all the right things just at the wrong time, yes I keep doing all the right things just at the wrong time Because I know that you will never look at me the way you look at her And that you will never smile at me the way you smile at her And that my hand will never fit in your like hers did with you but I’ll try oh my god I will try, I will try oh my god I will try Walking down these city streets I can taste gin in my mouth, got drunk again, thinking bout you Wanna call you wanna scream out loud that I miss you I miss you, oh my god I miss you But it seems to me that I mislead you A girl can dream of a perfect life I’m sorry for what I’ve done to you But I was doing all the right things just at the wrong time, yes I keep doing all the right things just at the wrong time Because I know that you will never look at me the way you look at her And that you will never smile at me the way you smile at her And that my hand will never fit in your like hers did with you but I’ll try oh my god I will try, I will try oh my god I will try, I will try oh my god I will try But maybe one day you will look at me the way you look at her And maybe one day you will smile at me the way you smile at her And maybe one day you will take my hand like you took hers so I’ll try oh my god I will try, I will try oh my god I will try, I will try oh my god, why do I try?
