lyrics

Stay. I've got just one more thing I wanna say.
Today marks the end of a 1001-day-long wait.
Well, turns out our love is a tale you can bottle up and sell.

Once in a million or maybe more
Baby's asleep on the hood of your car,
Her flowers have bloomed and her property soared
Once in a million (or maybe more)

Long overdue for a liberty call,
You took her for drinks, and you both had a ball.
But the chase soon became but a rickety crawl
Once in a million, or maybe more

Hey, I've got just one more thing I wanna say.
Been saved from the bed that I made by the plans that you laid.
Hell, salvation itself is a tale you can bottle up and sell.

Alone in the crowded philosophy store
Between all the afters and after the befores
She shattered your windows and unlocked your doors
Once in a million or maybe more

You crashed in the kitchen, awoke on the porch
The dust you created created a roar
She called you a hero, you called her a whore
Once in a million or maybe more

Wait, I've got just one more thing I want to say
Fell in love with a girl that I wish they could bottle up and sell
