A song about dorks

lyrics

I wish I could go back and see you
for the first time again
To watch me painfully miss
the hints that bounce off my face

You gently cozied up to me
I couldn't talk cause you were hot
My comfort level with girls
is like Shaq's with a free throw

The way I dressed was appalling...
Nothing's changed, though you've tried
So many families of peach fuzz
murdered off my face

I still think farting is funny
and even good for your health
I didn't shower much at all
the year that we first kissed

But you got me to get you, 'til we got through
to the place where our love got some rings and tattoos
You said yes, so I'll say yes to
This dorky love that I've found in you

You walk with grace for a step,
then trip or stumble for two
I love the moment of panic
when you order food

You're quiet natured and gentle
You sling a punch like a dude
I doubt you love me like you love
CS Lewis or Tolkien

You pester cats and get bitten
Your love for dogs can get weird
at least a month of our marriage
has been in video games

You say the nerdiest things
But with the prettiest lips
And promise to stay up late
But fall asleep watching netflix

And you got me to get you, 'til we got through
to the place where our love got some rings and tattoos
You said yes, so I'll say yes to
This dorky love that I've found in you

Your obsessional viewings of Lord of the Rings
Are rivaled by my need
to recite every word of the Lion King
or wish my life was Dragon Ball Z

We look strange to the world
But I have been set free
By the wondrous Love that you give to me
