coconut hands and broken chairs
how I want to tell you it’s not fair
to throw away your heart out of fear
it’s not that you’re too young
it’s not that you’re too young

little folk songs and broadway blues
no bra, but a pom pom that blooms from your shoes
the things that I feel when your lips hit my ear
it’s not that I’m drunk
I swear I’m not drunk

there ain’t no one like me
and no one like you
but what you’re searching for
you have no clue
or so you say
but I think you know
it’s only yourself
that keeps you from love

cactus blossom with your little spines
you poke at yourself to try to make up your mind
but what is keeping you up at night
you’re thinking too much
you’re thinking too much

those goosebumps and heartbeat is what scares you the most
you hide it in the morning with strawberry toast
if only I could tell you to welcome it all
but you can’t hear my voice
you can’t hear my voice

twenty four candles, truffles, and wine
the salt on my neck and the smell of pine
up to your nose where a ring leaves a mark
and your legs start to shake as my hands draw a spark
combat boots and dinosaurs calls
tongue love, diamonds, and waterfalls
how long I’ll be there, I never can say
but I’ll never forget feeling this way

maybe you’re too young
