Dear Paul oh my old friend
I always liked you but you always liked to go
I loved you from the classroom window
But you were busy making girls like me miserable
Chasing the high school girls

Dear Paul I was changed
My very first addiction was named after you
And I stared and I shed some tears
Then started writing songs to comfort me while I wait
But like some things you never came

Dont you know eleven years is a long time
To freeze a heart eleven years is long enough
To make a girl insane

Dear Paul would you stay far
And be the bicycle that I never had
And Ive tried different kinds of ice cream
And some made my throat sore
But you were only bliss
So ill visit you in dream

Dont you know eleven years is a long time
To freeze a heart eleven years is long enough
To make a girl insane

You make a girl insane Paul
You make a girl insane

    Such an embarassing and frustrating feeling for someone, but it is very common. It's another version of "at seventeen" by janis ian
