Jonathan david

I know you like her
Well, I like her too
I know she likes you
It's not as if I'm being sent off to war
There are worse things in this world

There's still room in my wooden horse for two
I was jonathan to your david
You're still king

Well I thought about her
I dreamed she'd come
I'd make my escape
I thought she liked but somehow I was wrong
I know you don't want it this way

But it's ok

It's not like we'll be parted
It's not like we'll never know love
And she'll smile for you
She'll hold your hand
You'll be in love, there's no other way
And I will make it someday

Well, I know you like her
Well, I like her too
I know she likes you
It's not as if I'm being sent off to war
There are worse things in this world

There's still room in my wooden horse for two
I was jonathan to your david
You're still king

Visions of love recolected
Have we ever been true?
I know that I have
It's time for you to go
It's all in the stones that you throw
I want you to know

It's not like we'll be parted
It's not like we'll never know love
And she'll smile for you
She'll hold your hand
You'll be in love, there's no other way
And I will make it someday

People say that
"we'll never change"
"we'll never change"
But I have

You and her in the local newspaper
You will be married and you'll be gone

Married and you'll be gone
