Last night at the dance I met Laurie, so lovely and warm, an angel of a girl, last night I fell in love with Laurie, strange things happen in this world.
As I walked her home, she said it was her birthday, I pulled her close and said "will I see you anymore" and suddenly she asked for my sweater and said that she was very very cold.
I kissed her goodnight at her door and started home, then thought about me sweater and went right back instead. I knocked at her door and a man appeared. I told why I'd come and he said. You're wrong son, you weren't with my daughter. How can you be so cruel to come to me this way. My Laurie lest this word on her birthday, she died a year ago today. A strange force drew to to the graveyard. I stood in the dark. I saw the shadows wave and then I looked and saw my sweater lying there upon her grave. Strange things happen in this world.
