it’s one of those afternoons that don’t deserve to shine
I wasted my morning feeling sorry for myself, well ain’t that the story of my life
and I’m late for work again, and time won’t bend around on it’s end for me anymore
and it seems to be that just when things are almost killing me I saw you step out through your car door

and I can barely catch my breath
I watched you walk away
I guess I’ll have to wonder

if I’d said I want you, would you try your best to stay
if I’d said how are you, would you leave anyway
I don’t know what to tell you, but this too shall pass
I knew it at a glance, I’ll take a chance on Nebraska

what do I do, what do I say
I tried not to stare, but that’s like holding back a heart attack, or working on your birthday
if I were king you would be my queen, but what if I scrubbed the floor of the castle
and all these thoughts scrambled up for you, so I left them on your dashboard

and I guess I’ll never fall with you
unless unless


and I can’t sleep at night
sitting up by the phone feeling ridiculous
and then it rings

hello… I can’t believe you’re calling
I guess you got my note
I guess I rocked the boat, so I’ll rock it out

if I’d said I want you… if I’d said how are you
if I’d said I’d like to get to know you, get to know you yeah
