    When I told you I like you,
    I meant the earth stopped spinning for a second
    I saw how the stars looked that night too
    Star is a magical word.
    When I told you I like you,
    I meant I spun magic around the stars,
    I carefully placed them in words, the magic never broke its shell
    When I told you I like you,
    I meant the moon stopped changing shapes
    This was an unusual bright and light
    When I told you I like you
    I meant I danced around the moon mountains
    Weighless as a cloud on a clear sky
    When I told you I like you
    I meant I was jumping from one cloud to another
    I was floating around in air smelling like strawberries
    When I told you I like you
    I meant I found a strawberry forest
    I named each strawberry after you, and I ate them.
    When I told you I like you
    I meant it rained that night, it's December
    All the drops sung the verse "you like him" in chorus
    When I told you I like you
    I meant I taught me to like me,
    To practice on how to like you
    When I told you I like you
    I meant the room was frozen in time
    And that it moved only for me and you
    When I told you I like you
    I meant, I am good with words, I'll untie the knots
    I know exactly what poets write about
    When I told you I like you
    You told me "I like you too"
    When I told you I like you,
    I meant everything I said and beyond
    When you told me you like me
    I stood there with a big bowl,
    I caught the stars the moon the rain and the clouds
    The earth had started spinning again,
    Magic broke its shell
    Why?
    When I told you I like you, I know you liked it
    When you told me you like me,
    You meant, " I like that you like me"
