I wish I had a chance to tell you again
'Cause the first time didn't go as planned
All the sweat in my palms washed away
The hours of thought written in my hands

Maybe I was too nervous
Or perhaps it was just the wrong time
Whatever the case, it left me alone
And more than a few years behind

And I promise I'm not feeding you lines here
You know I'm not quoting a book
I'm trying to be serious for once
So please don't give me that look

You know the one I'm talkin' about
The one that's both a smile and a lie
It always brings me down to Earth
But right now I want to fly

Fly up and above all your expectations
'Cause you've seen all that I've got
What I've got just isn't enough
But I can't be something I'm not

Because that would mean I lied to you
And that's a side I don't want you to see
As I'm writing this poem, I'm thinking of you
I hope it makes you think of me
"I sorta don't trust anyone who doesn't like Led Zeppelin"
-Jack White
