I remember the first night I met you
You brushed past my arm at the bar
And suddenly it was like somebody, somewhere
Scraped their keys down the side of my heart
A heart that had been stuck in traffic
At some interminably unchanging red light
You beckoned me off, down a side street
Welcomed me into the night

You're wary and you're wise like Athena
Like Artemis, you're wild and you're free
You carry yourself like you're Hera
But quietly, you'll always be little Aphrodite to me

I remember the first night I met you
How could I ever forget?
You were trading my drinks for across-the-bar winks
Like a rumor that I hadn't heard yet
When I stumbled into you outside
I said I was sorry but that was kind of a lie
I'd been waiting for you and I know that you knew
You still laughed, you still acted surprised

And it's faintly ridiculously
For me to be saying I'm sure
But if I had an apple to give
Then it would be yours
And the others would rage as I turn them away
But you'd follow me down to the shore
And for you I'd start a war
So, baby, yes, I'm sure

You're wary and you're wise like Athena
Like Artemis you're wild and you're free
You carry yourself like you're Hera
But quietly, you'll always be little Aphrodite to me
Little Aphrodite to me

(La, la la la la...)
