[Gavin Castleton]
She walked into the shop
And the windows broke
The coffee crashing down
As this angel spoke

I might've survived if it weren't for her eyes
That were eating mine up
She wanted a job so I brought her the forms
With my eyes held shut

Was this love?
I wondered 'cause I'd never been
So absolutely jello-ed by a girl

Was this love?
What other reason could there be
When such a little thing could break a world?

Was this love?
I knew that if she didn't get this job
Then I would never know

Was this love?
So I told the boss that I would train her
Thoroughly from head to toe

On that day
In my heart
A castle rose
A mansion fell apart

[Castleman + Coleman]
Love with us was such a waking up
Warm and foggy as a coffee mug
A burning thing
Full of steam
Learning us

[Lauren Coleman]
I walked into the shop
Expecting nothing but no's
Rubbed my bleary eyes
Last night still on my clothes

Then I stopped in the door 'cause I'd seen him before
My tongue suddenly thick
But I needed a job so he brought me the forms
Like a conjuring trick

Was this love?
This deja vu was turned into a pinball
Ringing in my tilted head

Was this love?
I couldn't understand how he had jumped offstage
And landed here instead

Was this love?
So I case the place for inspiration on the walls
And then my coffee cup

Was this love?
As I tried to think of clever things to say
To make him look back up

On that day
In my head
Movies played
Of things he said
Constantly rewinding
Nothing there to remind me
That I don't believe in love

[Castleman + Coleman]
Love with us was such a waking up
Warm and foggy as a coffee mug
Strong at first
Best served fresh
At its worst
