Scout and I were good friends
Ruled the neighborhood with no fear
'Cause she was just one of the boys then
Until the day she started lookin' at me weird
She said, "I want to kiss you"...
Then she threw me down to the grass
But I was more scared than confused
She said if I told her dad, she'd kick my ass
She grabbed me by the face
Said, "On your mark, get ready, set"...
We stayed close as the years flew by
Went onto different high schools
I remember she nuck up to my room one night
And asked me if I wanted to break some rules
She said, "I've dreamed of having you put me down,
Burn my bridge right to the ground
You will never mind what I ever said before,
I'm not just the girl next door no more"...
She put her hands upon my face
said, "on your mark, get ready, set, go"...
This will be our little special place
Let's go find out what you know...
Some things in your life you say
Other things you say you won't...
The very next morning I awoke with a chill
She had left a flower on my window sill
And as I viewed her footprints from the night before
I realized I wasn't a boy no more...
I zoned out on her face
On your mark, get ready, set, go...
This was our little special place
And I found out what I now know...
