    Somethin like a first kiss
    I can't even explain it
    kind of like a pure and untainted
    school girl innocence
    When holding my hand
    was considered good lovin'
    and giving me a hug
    was considered serious touchin'
    When writing me notes
    was your way to holla
    so young that I had to hide
    your hickies with my collar
    and the rings that you gave me
    were made out of dollars
    When walking home after school
    was our version of a date
    falling asleep on the phone
    cause neither one of us could wait
    for our next encounter
    counting minutes into hours
    until we're sitting together on the bus
    only different class schedules
    could separate us
    Pushing me on the swings
    and waiting at the slide
    counting to ten
    and closing your eyes
    so you could come get it
    after I hide
    Creeping up behind me
    to young to realize that
    I wanted you to find me
    At the corner store
    buying lemon drops
    and the icecream man
    in the big white van
    selling rocket pops
    me and you
    waiting at bus stops
    seeing you in 4th period
    and feeling my heart drop
    The first participant
    in my adolescent boy craze
    Thinking back to grade school
    and those innocent school days.

    awww man. the beauty and innocence of that first love. makes one want that kind all the time. that pure honest stuff with no pretense, no ulterior motives, just ... "do you like me? yes, no, maybe so"
