I Like You (Farr's Song)
If you didn't know I liked you
You're pretty bright
you'll probably figure it out now
Or maybe you think I just like to
Dress up in white and throw bags
Of our parents' cash around

Did you know
I did not like you much
When we met-what was it?-8 years ago?
You and your friends you had this
"We're too cool" attitude
But I must admit
I was quick to let that go
When you showed up in my doorway
Your wide brown eyes were simply fastened to your feet
You had one hand behind you, the other hand was holding out
My favorite sweet thing to eat
You said...

I like you, I like you
Could you maybe like me, too?
I like you, I like you
Could it really be that simple?

'Cause you know
That I'm just like you
I can get shy
Hell, I can shut down
But we're gathering up
Everything that scares us
We'll divide it by two
And you'll see
There ain't nothing
we can't shut down

'Cause I like you, I like you
Could you maybe like me, too?
I like you, I like you
Could it really be that simple?

Later on when it's quiet
and everyone we love
Has made their way home
Yeah, I know we're gonna be tired
But at least I know
I'll finally be alone
With that boy
Who brought me ice cream
Just 8 years ago
You still make
Everything so sweet
And you paint your pretty pictures of Everyone we know
And nearly everyone you meet
But they pale in comparison
Yeah they do
To your beauty and your grace
Yeah, I know this is embarrassing,
I can almost feel the heat
Rise to your face

'Cause you like me, you like me
You know you like me, too
Yeah, you like me
Oh baby I love you
Could it really be that simple?

Diamond in the Rough
(colvin/leventhal)

As a little girl
I came down to the water
With a little stone in my hand
It would shimmer and sing
And we knew everything
As a little girl I came down
But in a little while
I got steeped in authority
Heaven only knows
what went wrong
There is nothing so cruel than
To bury that jewel
When it was mine all along
I'm gonna find it

You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough

Every now and then
I can see that
I'm getting somewhere
Where I have to go is so deep
I was angry back then
and you know I still am
I have lost too much sleep
But I'm gonna find it

You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough

In my dreams
I go down by the water
With a little girl in my arms
And we shimmer and sing
And we know everything
In my dreams I go down

You're shining I can see you
You're smiling that's enough
I'm holding on to you
Like a diamond in the rough
Like a diamond in the rough
