We were seventeen when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm sitting there
A cafeteria in rainy air
See the eyes
See the beauty, the white skin
I see you stare at me as I eat
Your eyes were black, little did I know
That you were a vampire, and you could smell me
And then you said, "Stay away from me, Bella."
And I was crying in your Volvo
Begging you please don't go, and I said
Edward, I love you, like you're the only one I know
I'll be waiting, and I know how fast you can run
You'll be the vampire, and I'll be the vampiress
This is my story, be my happy ending
So you climb through my window to see me
We keep quiet 'cause we're in trouble if Charlie knew
So close your eyes
Escape Forks for a little while
Then, at my birthday, there was scarlet blood,
And you said, "Stay away from me, Bella."
But you were everything to me,
I was begging you please don't go
And you said:
Bella, I don't want you to come with me
I don't love you, this relationship just can't be
The Cullens are leaving and you're staying here.
This is your story, I won't interfere.
Jacob, save me, I don't know how to feel
Edward's gone, and only dangerous things feel real
I'm not afraid that you're a werewolf
Can we ride motorcycles, Jacob just say yes
Alice said you went to Italy,
So we got on a plane to go save you
The sun was coming,
But I crashed into you just in time, we went home and I said
Edward, bite me, I don't want to be alone
I keep waiting, but I know you'll never crack
Can I be undead? I don't know what to think.
He knelt to the floor and pulled out a ring
And said, "Marry me Bella,
I'll make you a vampire
I love you, though I wish you would wait a while
I know what you want, we can just go to Vegas
This is your story, and I'm not going anywhere!
Oh, oh, oh, oh
'Cause we were seventeen when I first saw you
