Carrots & Peas

about

A sweetie peetie song written in 2012. I don't have much to say about it except that it came out in one big clump onto my bed and I fell in love with it.

lyrics

We match up perfectly
Like a carrot to a pea
Like a boogers relation to a sneeze
Like stupid rhyming schemes to bad poetry
We always seem to match up perfectly.

I like you so much I’m writing you this song
Even though we haven’t met don’t get me wrong
I already know that we’ll get along
My net to catch you with will be this song.

I know you’re out there, when will you come find me?
I know you’re out there, when will you come find me (please).

I love the way you brush the hair off of my neck
And when we dance we always seem to forget
That we are two bodies instead of one
Like a little flower in the sun.

And when I’m sick you’ll bring me homemade chicken soup
Cause you know that I would do the same for you
We’ll help heal each others minds and hearts
And other random dangling body parts.

I know you’re out there, when will you come find me?
I know you’re out there, when will you come find me (please).

One day you’ll leave me like everybody do
Don’t worry babe this one’s not up to you
The leaves will fall as quickly as they grew
But not before their chance to fully bloom.

Your memory will slowly fade away
They say that it gets better every day
The silly things that only people say
When they’re trying to make you feel ok.

Our love has ended, but I will always hold you.
All leaves fall away, but not before their chance to fully bloom
