lyrics

Skipping stones with you has turned my head
I was ready to give you my precious summer days before you said
That we can't be in love we're only nine years old
But Fiona, my heart beats still
As you curl up beside me in our secret world
I'll drive us away to a house by the sea
And between every wave you can skip stones with me

Some years later in the junior high
Where the boys and the girls meet at football games to flirt through the night
When I asked you to dance with me your cheeks turned red
And I knew from the way you held my hand
That you can't be in love with your first best friend
But Fiona, my heart beats still
And the air turns electric with one smile from you

Then one moonlit night we took to the woods
And we stumbled into our imaginary childhood
And we climbed into the car where this feeling began
You whispered we might be in love
Oh we might be in love
Oh Fiona, my heart beats still
As you curl up beside me in our secret world
I'll drive us away to a house by the sea
And between every wave you can skip stones with me
