He looked at her, in her awful dress; he —

Told her, the way her hair fell was pretty.

He never noticed me, my jealousy. 

All he saw was her; their love made him witty. 

—–

He was joyful around her, said forget —

Lies people tell, talking behind their back. 

Envious I spread more discord, I was set —

To move in; that Beth, she was such a brat.

—-

He liked me first, but then he saw sweet Beth, 

Told her: “If she’s the last thing he should see–

He wouldn’t be sad, forget or regret; 

[I bawled] she was all he would ever need.” 

—–

Her eyes were the the blue of the Tenerife Sea, 

Envy upset me; he loved Beth —not me.

Sea of this land where, 

She grabs my —

Hand and we swim away.

——

Each day there is something, 

New about her, 

To love and to appreciate.

—-

Today it’s her hair and —

Her eyes —

Make my shiver, good way. 

—-

Pursing her lips, batting her —

Eyes, she smiles, 

I’m out of my league.

—–

My voices it’s shaking and —

I know you, 

I love you with all —

—-

That I am; it won’t —

Change; my hands —

Tremble because I’m too stunned. 

—-

You’re out of my league, 

But I love —

You; you thumb through your —

Hair, bat your eyelashes, smile —

Swimming thoughtfully in —

Strange seas; better than land.

—–

You’re out of my league, 

I love you —

So much; I’d rather be —

—–

Here with you close as —

We swim in —

The strange sea, lovers together. 

—–

I’m out of my league, 

Out of my —

League; we’re our own world.
