Going to school home coming,
In which I feel like I have invited myself
I have clean shaven my face
The clock on the wall told me to suit up
I’m now wearing the suit and tie now.
With a sleek pair of some cheap sunglasses
I ride to the school in an ok looking purple 1996 Neon
That came from Tucson Arizona.
I walk into the high school
After going past the security guards after showing
My school I.D
Then I arrived
Officially now I am feeling right.
I am at the Northridge Homecoming Dance
I arrive and see all the people dancing on the Dance floor
And then they stopped like a sheer
Heart attacks all amongst the whole crowd.
But then realized that was just me
Becoming very nervous
Still believing tonight is the night
I sat at the drink stand and ordered a drink.
Sadly didn’t have anyone to share drink or to dance with.
I do not want to go on tonight
During this night by only
Dancing with myself
I wouldn’t want to accept it
Because I came
With a mission to make a change
So it wouldn’t be only me,
Then a crowd flocks
As a flock of seagulls
Towards my way and
All of them were girls
Not ugly girls that fell out of the ugly trees
Of the schools Apple Orchards
The group of girls looked at me
They looked like they were from my school,
As some I did recognize and also a few
I haven’t seen before to be recognizable
The girls ask me simultaneously
Even loud enough to be heard over the DJ’s music playing
Don’t You Forget About Me
By the Simple Minds
They yell out simultaneously
“Hey! Hey! Hey!
What’s your name?”
I blurted out my name almost sounding
My name is Phil James…
And they started to be fighting
I guess it could have been over me
This never ever happens for me.
But while the dancing was becoming a Ballroom Blitz,
I went to do something else instead
I was then looking to you
I saw you stepped from the nonsense of fighting
That was over me maybe
God only knows?
I told her
Hey you’re such a pretty girl.
And she turns to me and also says you are such a pretty boy
Not only that you such a pretty boy
As nothing else explains the way you look but only,
You’re just so pretty.
And at the time right there
Only thanks to you
Lifted the shades of gray off of me
And I became stuck
Stuck as like a monkey on both of our backs
In which I love that as
It should stay the same
In that type of way
Until you and I decide to go apart as the year comes closer
To a close
In these dramatically changing times
