Jill’s been waiting on a hill for long as she remembers—
She’s cold and all alone in this last week before November.
Jack is walking by and finds this aforementioned hill;
He decides to make the climb and that’s when he meets Jill.
Jack is nothing special, but there’s something in his eyes—

Jill, crossing her arms, is forced to swallow down her pride—
She turns her face away from him so he won’t see her cry.
Jack leaves the hill, but so does Jill—the latter in a huff;
She tromps her way down to the ground, cursing her own bad luck.

A boy who seems so perfect but who’ll break her in the end.
Meanwhile, Jack forgot to fetch that damned old pail of water—
He climbs the hill just like he did the first day that he saw her.

Jack falls down and there’s no one who’s as broken as he.
