We meet outside my work as I finish for the day
I said "Gee, I didn't realise it gets dark this way"
And I'm bad at first impressions, I say everything too fast
I never have mystique that lasts

After one block of walking you know my middle names
After two blocks I've told you Top Five Moments of Shame
And I curse in my head for always saying too much
When you say you can't get enough

And we walk slowly even though we're both freezing to the core
You tell me your work life, I ask to hear more
And I know it sounds silly, but I like knowing your days
So I can daydream accurately

And when your arm brushes against mine
It sends a shiver down my spine
And I think this could be something, we could be something
Oh, I've hoped for quite some time

And you've picked out a café you think I'll love
When we get there there's a sign above
The door that informs us that it's closed for a week
You blush and look at your feet

But of course we end up somewhere just as nice
The place doesn't matter, I think there are hearts in my eyes
I've never been good at hiding this kind of joy
My acting talent doesn't stretch to coy

And when your hand touches mine
It sends a shiver down my spine
And I think this could be something, we could be something
Oh, I've dreamed of you for quite a while

And we lose track of time
Clinging on to every last line
And when we're kicked out at closing
My heart is beating so fast I think it shows through my coat

Then you walk me to the subway and I almost want to turn back
Pretend I have a reason to slack
'Cause this anticipation might be the death of me
I like you and I think you like me too

And when your lips touch mine
It sends a shiver down my spine
And I think this could be something, we might be something
It feels as good as the times in my mind

And the stars shine brighter
My feet feel lighter
As I make my way home tonight
