Balance Beam

This song is by Blue October and appears on the album Consent To Treatment (2000).

I haven't been quite the same,
So sure the story of my life would never change.
Then in a bright-eyed way,
She rinsed out the soap in my eyes,
And wrote a song that I'm about to sing.

She's a magnetic girl
That I hardly even know.
So this is not another love song.
Just a list of things that I should know,
And everyone should know that:

One: you gotta take it kinda slowly;
Two: you gotta hurry up and make your move;
Three: you gotta tell her you're feelin'.

Four: you gotta be the perfect gentleman
When you shake the walls, you got to make 'em bend, yeah.
You got to show her that
She's the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.
(Her fairy tale)

We took a walk in the rain.
I suggested and she confessed:
There's a heart nearby to cast the shame.

Stay cool.
But I'm giddy like a school boy.
You got to handle with care:
This is not a toy.

Then gradually we touched.
And though our clothes were wet, we sat and smiled.
I never thought I'd smile so much.
The first kiss always says the most.

One: you gotta take it kinda slowly
Two: you gotta hurry up and make your move
Three: you gotta tell her that she's pretty.

Four: you gotta be the perfect gentleman
When you shake the walls, you got to make 'em bend, yeah.
You got to show her that
She's the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.
(Her fairy tale)

I wanna sing to you...

And everyone should know that

One: you gotta take it kinda slowly
Two: you gotta hurry up and make your move
Three: you gotta tell her that she's pretty.

Four: you gotta be the perfect gentleman
When you shake the walls, you got to make 'em bend, yeah.
You got to show her that
She's the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.

Her fairy tale
Some kind of fairy tale
Some kind of fairy tale
And everyone should know that...
