he says, i can break your arm.
she replies, its not just my arm you can break.

he says, free yourself this afternoon.
and she replies, only if you will.

and he asks, can i kiss you?
and she replied, yes.

he asks, how’ve you been.
and she replies, i’ve been living.
with or without you.

i gave you my heart, you gave me the flu and a lousy cry.
