I think Ive fallen Im not sure
Youre just too cute for your own good
I catch you all the time
The looks you give me
They make me melt and smile

Maybe if I can get over the negative, you can help me with the positive
Its something Im going to have to pin my hopes on
But why is it soo hard?

He terrified me.
My brother couldn’t get enough of him.
When my brother got caught in my mother’s evening dress, my mother grabbed us both and dragged us to Genghis. It was a slow day, and we were the only kids crowding him. “Tell him what you did,” my mother hissed a
