lyrics

One means somebody’s lonely
Company means there are two
Three means a crowd, and it’s about to get loud
And four means more than a few

Five means to take a quick little break
And get back to work when you’re through
I just want to mean something to you

Lightning means there’ll be thunder
Sun means the sky’ll be blue
When the leaves are falling it means that autumn is calling
and the summer days are through

Snowflakes mean that it’s winter
The birds’ll tell you it’s true
I just want to mean something to you

Maybe what I mean to say
Is that I think about you in the most romantic of ways
And I’m hoping you’ll be open to discussing us and nothing in between

Maybe what I mean is that I love you more than any other I’ve seen
If you couldn’t tell well I hope you’re quite keen on it
Like a rhyme loves a sonnet
Like a movie loves a screen
that’s what I wanna mean to you

Laughing means there is happiness
Crying means somebody’s blue
Screaming implies someone’s been telling lies
Or an apology is overdue

A smile means things turned out alright
Despite an oversight or two
I just want to mean something to you
I just want to mean something to you
