Mango Tree

lyrics

It was summer love, you were my first kiss
Even though I'd never admit
You were so damn cool, sitting by the pool
Reading magazines with the girls from school
Nothing to lose I took a chance,
Stared at my shoes and asked you your plans
I took you to Ben Folds, you taught me to dance
We played the game of who could care less

Won’t you sit with me underneath the mango tree
Where the words were hushed like we wanted them to be
We talked all night as we tried to make it right
The world seemed bright underneath the blue skies

It was summer love, and its still might be
Cuz time ain’t never meant much to me
You were so damn fine, I was so damn green
You were the cutest girl I’d ever seen
With your ocean hair breezin’ down the beach
Showing you off in that southern heat.
The fireworks above, were in your eyes
As you whispered these words and said goodbye.

Won't you sit with me underneath the mango tree
Where the words were hushed like we wanted them to be
We talked all night as we tried to make it right
The world seemed bright underneath the blue skies

Won’t you think of me underneath the mango tree
Where the words were hushed like we wanted them to be
We talked all night as we tried to make it right
The world seemed bright underneath the blue skies

Now you've got me thinking those things
That I always wanted to say
All those words and harmonies
That make the birds and trees swing
Now you got me humming along
Now you've got me singing this song
