a friend and I were talking about this song last week - a pretty obscure song from Alanis off her original (i think) album. It blew me away when I first heard it. I can plug in boys names in each of the versus and it rings so true....but that is why we love Alanis in the first place right! Then to day I heard it playing in the grocery store (of all places) and took it as a sign that I should share it with you all!
I like you a lot I realize you're in a relationship with someone right now and I respect that I would like you to know that if you're ever single in the future and want to come visit me in California I would be open to spending time with you and finding out how old you were when you wrote your first song
I liked you too much I used to be attracted to boys who would lie to me and think solely about themselves and you were plenty self-destructive for my taste at the time I used to say the more tragic the better the truth is whenever I think of the early 90's you face comes up with a vengeance like it was yesterday
I love you muchly you've been nothing but open hearted and emotionally available and supportive and nurturing and consummately there for me I kept drawing you in and pushing you away I remember how beautiful it was to fall asleep on your couch and cry in front of you for the first time you were the best platform from which to jump beyond myself what was wrong with me
You rocked my world you had a charismatic way about you with the women and you got me seriously thinking about spirituality and you wouldn't let me get away with kicking me own ass but I would never really feel relaxed and looked out for around you though and that stopped us from going any further than we did and it's kinda too bad because we could've had much more fun
We learned so much I realize we won't be able to talk for some time and I understand that as I do you the long distance thing was the hardest and we did as well as we could we were together during a very tumultuous time in our lives I will always have your back and be curious about you about your career your whereabouts
julia's note: this song came out a long time ago, before I was married.... these words were to those boys BACK THEN :-) .... not so much anymore
