if I had an ounce of charm
I would take you by the arm
and you would not resist the pull
I know it sounds improbable
but it happens every day to people
just like you and me

if I had a lick of sense
I would wear down your defense
and kiss you while your eyes are shut
I know it sounds unlikely but
it’s still the only way two people
share one frequency

tell me now, before you ask your agents in the field
why you hold your body like a weapon you can wield
as a human shield

I see you sitting on the couch
I see you fiddle with your blouse
I watch you take a sip of tea
I can’t believe it’s up to me

the planets kiss/the seasons shift
the major fall/the minor lift
the winter coats/the summer skirts
the autumn leaves/the springtime flirts
if I could overcome my fear
then this could be a banner year
and it happens every day to people
and what else can you say to people
just like you and me?
