balance beam lyrics – blue october

i haven’t been quite the same
so sure the story of my life would never change
in a bright eyed way
i rinsed out the soap in my eyes and wrote a song that i’m about to sing
’cause it’s about a girl that i hardly even know
so this is not another love song
just a list of things that i should know
everyone should know that…

one: you’ve got to take it kind of slowly
two: you’ve got to hurry up and make your move
three: you’ve got to tell her that she’s pretty
four: you’ve got to be the perfect gentleman
when you shake the wall, you’ve got to make it bend
yeah you’re got to show her that she’s a balance beam
and i keep falling all around this fairy tale.

we took a walk in the rain
i suggested, she confessed that
there’s a heart nearby to cast some shade.
stay cool but i’m giddy like a school boy
you’ve got to handle with care this is not a toy
gradually we touched
though our clothes were wet
we sat and smiled
i never thought i’d smile so much
the first kiss always says the most

[repeat chorus]
everyone should know that
[repeat chorus]

oh this fairy tale oh this fairy tale
some kind of fairy tale. some kind of fairy tale.

everyone should know that.
