All I'm asking for is for you to do me a few favors.
You at least owe me that.
okay? Here we go.

Look down right in the middle of you're chin.
I know you can see it, you can't miss it.
Find it? that's your mole.
Now put your finger on it.
Got it? well that's the first thing I noticed on you.

Look down again, this time to the left.
That's you're hand.
That's the hand I held with all my might.

Okay now go find a mirror.
Look into it, right into you're own eyes.
See those blue things.
That's what I fell in love with.

Keep looking at the mirror.
Are you looking?
Okay good, now smile.
C'mon just a little, I know you hate to.
Well, see that metal mouth?
That's what got me to smile everyday.

You can stop checking yourself out now.
Just look up, see that mop of hair on you're head.
I said you're haircut was cute.
I hated it.
Just thought i should tell you that.

That probably made you mad, sorry.
You always got mad at the little things.

Okay last thing, i promise.
Now look down and a little to the left,
See it, that's your heart.
Keep looking at it, because thats where i'll always be.
