Scout and I were good friends
Ruled the neighborhood with no fear
Cause she was just one of the boys then
Until the day she started lookin' at me weird
She said, "I wanna kiss you"
Then she threw me down to the grass
But I was more scared than confused
She said if I told her dad she'd kick my ass
She grabed me by the face
Said, "on your mark, get ready, set ..."
We stayed close as the years flew by
Went on to different high schools
I remember she snuck up to my room one night
Asked me if I wanted to break some rules
She said "I've dreamed of having you put me down,
Burn my bridge right to the ground
You will never mind what I ever said before,
I'm not just the girl next door no more"
She put her hands upon my face
Said "on your mark, get ready, set, go"
This'll be our little special place
Lets go find out what you know
Some things in your life you say
Othet things you say you won't...
The very next morning I awoke with a chill
She had left a flower on my window sill
And as I viewed her footprints from the night before
I realized I wasn't a boy no more
I zoned out on her face
On your mark get ready set go
This was our little special place
And I found out what I now know
