lyrics

I started a lemonade stand
At the end of my driveway
Because I know you ride your bike around here
Every Sunday

Please, oh please, oh please, oh God
I hope today you’re thirsty
Please, oh please, oh please, oh God
I hope today you’re thirsty

Because I can paint
The colors of your helmet
Without looking
And I will wait
For hours at this
Lemon-laced diversion
For your love

The queen of hearts
Was stuck in the spokes
Of your back tire
And I would listen for it daily
To break up the silence
In my at this point still working heartbeat
Hoping you’d notice the stand
And reach out your hand
And ask for a cup

I painted a masterpiece
With my mother’s paintbrush
I wrecked like half of it
But it’s fine I can save us

Please, oh please, oh please, oh God
I hope that you can see me
Please, oh please, oh please, oh God
I wish that you could see me

Because I can see
The colors of your high-tops
While I’m sleeping
And I will trace
The circles of the
Motion of your pedals
In the dark

The queen of hearts
Was stuck in the spokes
Of your back tire
And I would listen for it daily
To break up the silence
In my at the point still working heartbeat
Hoping you’d notice the stand
And reach out your hand
And ask for a cup
