“Littlest Things”

Sometimes I find myself sittin’ back and __________
Especially when I have to watch other people kissin’
And I __________ when you started callin’ me your miss’s
All the play fightin’, all the flirtatious disses
I’d tell you sad __________ about my childhood
I don’t know why I trusted you but I knew that I could
We’d spend the whole weekend lying in our own dirt
I was just so happy in your boxers and your t-shirt

[Chorus]
Dreams, Dreams
Of when we had just started things
Dreams of you and me
It seems, It seems
That I can’t shake those __________
I wonder if you have the same __________ too.

The littlest things that take me there
I know it sounds lame but it’s so true
I know it’s not right, but it seems unfair
That the things are __________ me of you
Sometimes I wish we could just pretend
Even if only for one weekend
So come on, Tell me
Is this the end?

Drinkin’ tea in bed
Watching DVD’s
When I discovered all your dirty grotty magazines
You take me out shopping and all we’d buy is trainers
As if we ever needed anything to entertain us
the first time that you introduced me to your __________
and you could tell I was nervous, so you held my hand
when I was __________ down, you made that face you do
There’s no one in the world that could replace you

[Chorus]

2.Use the words from the exercise 1 and write a poem or a short story.
