I want a boy in a thrift store sweater with dark-rimmed glasses and his hands in his pockets when he walks. He talks if you talk to him, and you can talk to him for quite a while or you could sit all day and listen to the things that he has to say and if you’re lucky he’ll smile. He’d stare at his shoes all day if he didn’t remember to look up high at all the dirty blue buildings and the big blue sky and the people going by. He wants to change the world into something beautiful and he knows it’s impossible but he’s not afraid to try. And he stands like a young oak tree and his hands and are like soft new leaves and he reaches like a young oak tree and he doesn’t know, he doesn’t know that he’s beautiful. He can play a few chords on guitar (I can hear it through the wall). I think his boss’ name is Charlie and he argues with his mom, but he always says “sorry” then he hangs up the phone, and we’re all alone and then it’s quiet for a while, and then he plays Kinks record till 2. I want the boy in the thrift store sweater I’m here for you I’m here for you Come knock on my door, don’t make me wait no more staying up till 2 with the Kinks and you. You’re beautiful You’re beautiful I want the boy in the thrift store sweater I love the boy in the thrift store sweater
