Sometime in December 2003

There I was in a store
Produce, Milk, Cheese, Pop Tarts, Pudding
I was chasing something but I was afraid to go where it did
So I went to the store
Someone asked me something
This someone was a spectacular sort of a girl
She asked me again.
"Huh?"
She evidently asked something other than what I had heard
Her mouth moved once more
Maybe she wasn't even talking to me
Yeah, definitely not to me.
Vanilla, Maple Syrup, Rice Krispies, Burritos
There she was again; asking me that same something
But closer this time
I told her I didn't know
It was the first thing I thought of
I told her and left
I was chasing something but I was afraid to go where it did
