I wrote this for a short-lived band I was in where we wrote and covered songs from Nickelodeon's "Doug." It's part autobiographical and part Doug but the lines between the two continue to blur.

My Sweet Dearest,
this night has been the clearest since I first moved to this town.
I never knew this feeling before you and everything has got me down.
My heart has been broken from the start and now my eyes fill with tears.
I now question if I should even mention the way that I've felt for years.

And it's just like you once told me, "I'd like to know you, and you only."
When will that day come to be?
The night air is so cold, maybe with you I can grow old.
Do you feel the same about me?

My Sweet Dearest,
Tonight you are a spirit and I am looking in all the wrong places.
Our first date was awkward, it was great, and now the blood runs to both of our faces.
You turn inside to leave, no longer can I breathe, but I can still feel your touch.
Feeling cold and alone, I start to head for home, then the light in your room comes on.

And I rush home just to call you. What I said, well it was all true.
How could I give you the key?
Being with you just feels right. Dreaming of you, I can sleep tight.
When will that day come for me?
