I saw you standing there
The wind blowing your hair
It's fate my life has brought me here to you
Walked over my way
I didn't know what to say
I think that I love you
maybe it's just the fumes

Angel pumping gas
Why won't this moment last?
It's fate my life has brought me here today
Soon I'll be on my way
Though I'd really like to stay
But the road is out there calling me away
But I really need you here with me today

You asked "what can I do?"
I say "unleaded fuel"
You open up my tank and start the pump
Grab a wet squeegee
and wipe my windshield clean
When all the while my tank is filling up


You ask "will that be credit or cash?"
But my Chevron card was lost in the trash
You say that "you will have to pay inside"
As my heart broke in two I felt like I could die
And as I turned the key
Her eyes contact with me
We share our precious moment in a glance
And as I drive away
Her memory's there to stay
With deep blue eyes have left me in a trance


Well maybe things are better off this way

    General CommentWhere did the rumors get started that this song was by the Postal Service? Because I swear I can hear Ben Gibbard singing backup vocals near the end of the song... or maybe I'm going completely insane.

    General CommentThis song is amazing, I downloaded it also thinking it was by the postal service years ago, and it wasnt until this month that i realized it was by this band. Fantastic song, cant get enough of it.

    General CommentI think the trouble all started because the name of the album is "Postal" but I could be wrong. This is a cheesy, poppy song but not bad.
