IVY
Do you have a second?

JASON
Yeah, what's up?

IVY
Well, it's just that I haven't seen you since...
I guess, I just thought that you would call me over the break.
I mean, it's fine that you didn't, but I just-

JASON
No, you're right, I should have called.

IVY
Things I have don't last for long
Boys have come and boys have gone, I've grown accustomed
I never really cared too much; don't get attached
Because I know them and what they're after
I let them in, we make some noise
They let themselves out, thats their choice, boys will be boys
The phone won't ring and I become some anecdote
And though I've had my fun, it gets lonely

But then came your kiss
And all I was missing was there in your eyes, your lonely blue eyes
So please, say you'll stay, say you'll never go away
My discarded heart has finally found a home
I know it's love... you touch my soul

When I see you, I catch my breath... forget my sorrow
And I miss you before you've left... you are tomorrow
Here in your hand, I find a chance to make it through
To be somebody... stay with me

I need your kiss
Cause all I was missing was there in your eyes, your lonely blue eyes
So please take my hand, let me help you understand
Two searching hearts can rest and be made whole
I know its love... please let me touch your soul
Please let me touch your soul

JASON
I...

IVY
You..? Listen, I know that is early with us
But I want you to know how I feel,
Because I've never felt this way before.
Have you ?

JASON
Yeah... Once
I think you're such a special girl
I really mean that
And I know in a perfect world
That I would love you
But what we have, it doesn't work
It isn't you, I swear, I promise
It's not about you

IVY
What do you mean?

JASON
I made a mistake. I don't think we should see each other.

IVY
No.. wait, can't we just back off ? I'm sorry, I should know...

JASON
Maybe someday
I wish to God I felt that way
You have touched my soul
You'll never know
But now I have to go...
