Why I never skip it?
As I have mentioned about 5,793 times on this blog, I am a sucker for a nostalgic love story, and I flipping love this song. There are two lines in this lovely, simple love song that grab me. “If I was back in primary, in a playground I would chase you” – that reminds me of a time in my youth when I was even less successful with women than I am today. And “next week I’ll forget probably, but today you blow my mind” really captures the infatuation of youthful love, simply unable to contemplate the rest of your life without this particular girl in it, only to move onto another a few week’s later. It only took me about 26 years to learn that lesson.

Favourite Lyric:
And next week I’ll forget probably
But today you blow my mind

As I walk up a street
I lift my head up and I face you
You look good and you smell sweet
It makes it harder to embrace you

If I was back in primary
In a playground I would chase you
But I’m not, I’m just me
You know you might be what I’m looking for

But my head won’t function properly
And my feet don’t move in time
And next week I’ll forget probably
But today you blow my mind

And as we talk I go all red
And I’m feeling like a school kid
All these thoughts that fill my head
I bet I’ll say something stupid

Just play it cool and keep it calm
And remember what your mother said now boy
Just use your charm
But all that good advice gets lost somewhere

Cause my mouth just won’t work right today
And my head is full with lines
If only I could find the words to say
We could spend a lifetime

Spend a lifetime…
