my lyricsbox
He took my knapsack just inside the revolving door

It was a bookstore where I'd never been before

I wasn't looking for anything more than a book

But I looked, isn't that what eyes are for

Studied biographies, I checked out the magazines

My mind kept leading me back to his face

I'd seen something about him that made me feel 17

Stop, so I'm not, isn't that what minds are for



Now every day I can't wait to see him

I'm gonna ask his name

But every day I hand him my bag and

Everything remains the same



He took my knapsack and his fingers brushed my wrist

Gave me a number but it wasn't even his

I crossed another novel off of my reading list

Wished to be kissed isn't that what lips are for

Thinking about him when I'm on my way to work

All these men in suits they look too perfect

And I want to tell him I'm not just some soulless jerk

Hey, I got a band I understand what life is for



Now every day I can't wait to see him

I'm gonna ask his name

But every day I hand him my bag and

Everything remains the same



He took my knapsack just inside the revolving door

Wanted to tell him that I can't see him anymore

Got a new job in a different part of town

Fired and rehired isn't that what work is for

He smiled right at me but I couldn't meet his eye

All I could look at was the palm tree on his tie

I'll think about him when I go to bed at night

Deep in my sleep isn't that what dreams are for



He took my knapsack just inside the revolving door

He took my knapsack just inside the revolving door

He took my knapsack
