I first met my girlfriend in the park one April day she was sitting underneath my favorite tree I had to say "you can't sit there" She laughed at me you know I couldn't help but like her told her so and then I guess I must've closed my eyes and kissed her looked again still there How did she get here? Why today appear? How can she be here? Minutes stretched to days to months we never left that spot I swear they had to mow around us carved our names into the tree and pledged that we'd be there One day we're talking suddenly she's got to play a game of hide and seek I close my eyes and count to ten look again she's gone Someone tell me please how long must I wait for her to be a good friend to her now? I can only count so high; the numbers just run out but I won't stop until they do Looked high and low, looked all around but couldn't find her climbed a tree--nothing to see but people looking at me funny called her name I swear I spent the next three years just trying to find her thought I saw her once or twice but I'm not sure one thing I know though: when she goes she's gone How can I be there when I can't find her anywhere? How can I be unless she is why should I be there.
