X's & O's

This song is by Ryan Ferguson and appears on the album Only Trying To Help (2007).

I've been meaning to tell you
That you were in another reoccurring dream of mine
I've been meaning to ask you
Have we met or are you just a figment of my mind?

The more I waste my time
Thinking about the words I shouldn't write
And knowing all too well I'll take the bait
She's leaving X's and O's by her name

I can't explain this attraction
I swear to you it only happens when I close my eyes
Never a big fan of fiction
Think I'm converting just to serve this fantasy of mine

No ink in my last pen
You've dried it out with run-on sentences
She's writing now with dark lipstick instead
Engraving X's and O's in my head

And she's got a red dress on in the act
It should blend well with the bleeding
The bandages are heart-shaped just like that
Imaginary wound I'm treating

I'm only trying to help you understand
Where I'm coming from, no one else can
So follow me until my shadow ends
And may the sun never go down again

And honestly, the more I waste my time
Thinking about the words I shouldn't write
Knowing all too well I'll take the bait
She's leaving X's and O's by her name
