i fell in love so discreetly
well i was sure
i'd slipped your mind

that when i shook off all the shackles
would have to find my place in line

but then i found you on my doorstep
and you were asking for the time

i never found them less attractive
your cornered desperation lies

(chorus)
how was i to know
you were trying to take it slow


i played along burning daylight
making up and changing minds

and stepping back just out of sequence
the dissonance all by design

best of friends dubbed you my best chance
and i grimaced out of pride

i never felt so quite distracted
as when we jumped on the l line

(chorus)
how was i to know
you were trying to take it slow
what all could we be
when the world is in my reach

(solo)

(chorus)
how was i to know
you were trying to take it slow
what all could we be
when you're living at my feet
