Paper Hearts

I used to think 
about camping out
under the mailbox
like good ol' Charlie Brown
waiting for a Valentine
waiting for love
to come and find me
As it turns out
it took more than 
just hanging around
I had to go looking
I had to get out
I had to find love
So I went searching
and it turned out 
that I didn't need 
to look that hard
There was love
waiting for me
not in the mailbox
Love was waiting
out on the coast
Patient love
Kind love
All I had to do
was get off the ground
dust myself off
and open my eyes
There she was
My love
I gave her my heart
and it wasn't paper
It was worth the wait
