At this club I noticed someone standing there
In a T-shirt and a pair of faded jeans
With stringy brownish shiny longish hair
I recognized him immediately

I used to play his songs when I was back in college
Back when LPs spun my whole wide world around
Back when I wasn’t smart enough to know
I'd be traveling down that road one day

And here he was in the flesh in a club in LA

All my attempts at acting cool went down the toilet
As I fumbled for a way to say hello
It looked like he was leaving and I panicked
I didn't want to let this moment go

And so I stopped him
And put his hand in mine
I looked him straight into those deep sad eyes
"You inspired me a long long time ago."

He said thanks and he was gone
My seven-second moment there in LA town
I never even said my name
The night that I shook hands
