Jimmy has a girlfriend;
They play in the schoolyard.
He gives her his cookie at lunch.
She wears her hand-me-down,
Faded flannel run-arounds.
Jimmy, he has more than enough,
But money doesn't catch a ball, and
That's what matters after all, here.
They didn't set the boundaries,
They didn't draw that line.
They only know how they feel inside.
Maybe they're young and learnin'.
Oh, no, but they're no fools.
Here, in their little world,
Jimmy's outta school now,
He's gettin' married.
Met the girl he's been dreamin' of.
'Round here the locals frown
On people, from her side of town.
They know how to make it rough.
The only thing that's goin' down
Is the love that they have found here.
Oh, sweet blindness.
All those lines just fade away.
It only starts when your heart leads the way.
