Ready, Set, Go

Caroline's Spine

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 want to 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 grabbed me by the face

Said, "On your mark, get ready, set"...

We stayed close as the years flew by

Went onto different high schools

I remember she nuck up to my room one night

And 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 will be our little special place

Let's go find out what you know...

Some things in your life you say

Other 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...
