lyrics

He's on the cusp of breaking down but not up
Cause she knows what to say when his tongue's stuck
He loves the way she looks at that patterned ring
That she got when she went Far East

That's when he asks what she's thinking
And every time she tells him

Things will never change, they will always stay the same
That's what she said
We will never be apart. I cross my little heart
That's what she said

He doesn't feel time when he falls asleep
Growing old feels so discreet
But one night he's wide awake at 3am
And so is she

She's caught catching glimpses of her ring finger
Then he asks what's on her mind
The cellar door, cellar door never shuts
He laughs and she confides

Things will never change, they will always stay the same
That's what she said
We will never be apart, I cross my little heart
And he believed her

At a bus stop, late-July
A stranger looks her dead in the eye
He greets her with a kiss
Sees our protagonist and says "Who's this?"

He sees a patterned ring
On this new lad's hand
He says she's the one
They fell in love in Japan

Things will never change, they will always stay the same
That's what she said
We will never be apart, I cross my little heart
That's what she said

Things will always change, they will never stay the same
That's what he said
We will always be apart, I cross my bleeding heart
That's what he said
