you are an ordinary boy
you like chinese food on saturdays
and tv late at night
when they only show repeats
you have an apple coloured coat
that you took from your brother
and you wear it when it snows
and when it’s really cold

in the winter evenings
you come round to mine
we waste away the hours
with fairy lights and wine
one day i will tell you
that you are quite the nicest

you will take me to paris
and we’ll sit under the champs elysees
and sip our english tea
like two kids with no clue
we’ll take a trip down the seine
take pictures of the eiffel tower
and then we’ll start again
with an empty roll of film

in the winter evenings
you come round to mine
we waste away the hours
with fairy lights and wine
one day i will tell you
that you are quite the nicest

you don’t even know my name
bumped into you yesterday
but you couldn’t hold my gaze
for a second or even two
did i see you hide a smile
as you walked away and left me here
i didn’t get to say that you are quite the nicest

you are quite the nicest
you are quite the nicest
you are quite the ni-i-icest --

    General Commenthaha i keep wanting her to say "thing" after nicest... but that would be a little too like nash, i guess :-)

    anyway, i really like this song. it's just sweet, simple, and has that little melodramatic/bittersweet sort of twist in the fifth paragraph (stanza?), that gives the lyrics more weight. the lyrics are great otherwise, but the not-everythings-happy-all-the-time thing that's going on in that stanza makes it more grounded and down to earth, and almost makes the other paragraphs more... believable (? that's not the right word, but perhaps you get what i mean. or perhaps i make no sense whatsoever, which wouldn't be an entirely new thing... :-) )

    anyway, have a happy day
