about

A country track. I hear it being played with a band

lyrics

First day at a new school
I don’t know the language and I don’t know what’s cool
I like my teacher though
Her name is Mrs. B
That day in class she puts a math question to me
So I stand up straight and tall
And out of all the faces I can see
I see the prettiest blue eyes blinking back at me
As I sing

Two times two is four
Three times two is six
Four times two is eight and I sat back down in my seat
And thought

That girl I see
Is the one for me
I was in the fourth grade
And she was in grade three

As it so happened
We were both fastest runners in our respective grades
And this was reflected in the lunch-time game we played
I’d be in the lead and she’d be chasing me
Why we did it I don’t know
But outside that wooden school, round and round we’d go

Maybe I’d had enough
Maybe we had run too far
All I know she had me cornered on those metal climbing bars
Right then she asked me if I loved her and I said no
She asked again and I said maybe
Right then my heart beat out my chest
When on the third time she asked me I said yes

Stephanie
You’re the one for me
I was in the fourth grade
She was in grade three

Our lives were set together by our peers that were in charge
And our love resounded through that primary school yard
Pretty soon I received my first love-letter
It had the edges crinkle-cut and my name in bright gold glitter
I showed it to my big brother and I said ‘what am I supposed to do with it?’
He said ‘keep it if you want’ so thats what I did
I made sure it was well hid
In my special box with a padlock on the lid

I didn’t want my folks to see
I was scared of what they’d think of me
I was in the fourth grade
And she was in grade three

It hadn’t been that long and it hadn’t been as fun
As before we were together and we could simply run
Pretty soon I heard the word ‘the end for us had come’
See, I didn’t hold her hand
I wasn’t a good friend
And I did not write back to her love-letter
I know I didn’t understand
And I wish I had known better

Stephanie
You’re the one for me
I was in the fourth grade
And she was in grade three
