hey, miscalculation, what’s your situation?
& hey there, misconception, could you make this one exception?
+++ to the rule that only fools try to fly before they’re cool,
+++ to the rule that only fools fall for girls who are way too pretty for them..

hey misunderstanding, are you really so demanding?
& miscommunication, we share the same frustration,
+++ I’m the boy you barely knew standing here without a clue, and
+++ I’m the fool who broke the rule, loved a girl who was way too pretty,
+++++ we see through the same eyes, believe the same lies,
+++++ the way we categorize, the way we learn to hide..

& hey there, misdirection, everybody needs affection,
in a world of misperception, could this be the one exception?
+++ to the rule that only fools try to fly before they’re cool,
+++ to the rule that only fools fall for girls who are way too pretty (for them),
+++ I’m the boy you barely knew, standing here without a clue,
+++ a heart as clumsy as it’s true, loved a girl who was way too pretty, &
+++++ we share the same eyes, believe the same lies,
+++++ the way we categorize, the way we learn to hide…
