A song about Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. www.stephanieperkins.com

lyrics

You see, this story isn't an easy one to tell
Before you and I got together my life was pretty messed up
And lucky for me, you fixed that
This is about what really happened before we started that chapter in our lives


The day before the day that you walked in my life
Ignorant to the world and the bliss was tight
Hear no evil speak no evil and without sight
Couldn't see why nothin' ever felt right

I admit, I thought I had it all figured out
Of bein' in love, I never had a doubt
Ellie was my heart, and Ellie was my soul
Ellie was the only one ever in control

Thought that I was up when I was down
How was I to know every smile was a frown and
That my heart never ever made a sound
Until that brown eyed hurricane came to town


It wasn't 'till I met you that I realized
My world was just a veil pulled over my eyes
When it came down you can imagine my surprise
That as the dark died I finally saw the sunrise


It was clear skies but I still couldn't see
That the chains were broken and I was finally free
When my world changed and the smoke cleared
I was one part love and five parts fear

I knew you were special but I was too damn scared
To break it off with Ellie or tell you that I cared
I was a weak man coming from weak stock
Despite my fear of change, the world turns like a clock

My only friend on this bumpy road was time
No one to talk to, no partner in crime
As times went by, things began to change
My twisted up mind was finally re-arranged

Day by day one foot in front of the other
Down the path that led me to discover
Who I was and what kind of man I am
And to keep my damn head up out of the sand


It wasn't 'till I met you that I realized
My world was just a veil pulled over my eyes
When it came down you can imagine my surprise
That as the dark died I finally saw the sunrise
