(feat. kelis)

Saw her on a friday outside someone run down saloon
She was cryin over someone she felt left much too soon
I said, hey girl don't you cry tonight
Let me take you out on this town
She looked at me and smiled as one last tear splashed off the ground
With half a wink she asked me would I use some kind of creep
I told her no, I guess I just feel your vibe is kinda deep
The moon hung over soho
And I counted 16 stars
I pointed at the brightest one and said now that one's ours
She's a dandelion, up on her hill above the sea
She's not exactly everything I thought that she might be

She's a dandelion
She looks like everything I need
I thought she was a flower
But I found out she's a weed

Then I hold on hold on hold on
Hold on hold on hold on

[kelis]
I just be poison
But I took he took me to his roof top
He said are you afraid of heights,
I said no I am not
He said hey girl don't you lie to me, tell me everything you feel
We danced around in circles,
He said I think we found something real

She's a dandelion, up on her cliff above the sea
She's not exactly everything I thought that she might be

She's a dandelion
She looks like everything I need
I thought she was a flower
But I found out she's a weed

Then I hold on hold on hold on
Hold on hold on hold on
Down in union square
I saw her walking all alone
I walked a little slower just so I'd remain unknown
She met someone on seventeenth that she knew him all too well
My little piece of heaven has a secret she won't tell
With half a smile she took his hand
And then they walked away
I realized I would not see my girl after today

I fell in love with a dandelion
And she's all I ever had
At first she looked so sweet
But in the end she tastes so bad
She's a dandelion, up on her cliff above the sea
She's not exactly everything I thought that she might be

She's a dandelion
She looks like everything I need
I thought she was a flower
But I found out she's a weed

Then I hold on hold on hold on
Hold on hold on hold on
And I tell myself
Hold on hold on hold on
Hold on hold on hold on
Yeah hold on
She's a dandelion, up on her cliff above the sea
She's not exactly everything I thought that she might be

She's a dandelion
She looks like everything I need
I thought she was a flower
But I found out she's a weed

Then I hold on hold on hold on
Hold on hold on hold on
