I’ve got nothing on today
Which is not to say I’m naked
I’m just sans plans
Maybe you could come over
God knows I’m going nowhere fast
Since you asked

Whenever you want
There’s a spot out the front of my place
The time it takes for you get from A to me...
I suppose we’ll just wait and see

I was drunk in the haze of happy hour
But I stumbled into sunshine
And I’m sober somehow
You can be the judge
Come and keep me company
Suddenly I’m lonely
If only you’d come over

Whenever you want
There’s a spot out the front of my place
It’s a tiny space
I said your driving couldn’t be worse
But I really meant just the reverse
You’re a great parker

If we have a great tonight
Tomorrow could be even greater
I love it that you’re so polite
But please don’t say “I’ll see you later”
I’d rather see you sooner
It’s getting darker
There’s not much room
But you’re a great parker

    General CommentThis song is cute.

    It seems pretty obvious to me. But this song has been my favourite lucksmiths song for a year at least.

    General CommentWhat strikes me most about this song is that it's a rather needy & lonesome song, but the singer isn't really begging - he's not saying, "I want you to come over so much that my life depends on it," he's saying, "whenever you want." He loves it that *she's* so polite, but he's really the polite one. I'm afraid I'm never that considerate of others' feelings when I'm that desperate.

    This song contains one of the Lucksmiths' greatest turns of phrase:

    "I said your driving couldn't be worse
    But I really meant just the reverse."

    As well, it contains a veiled reference to a famous Smiths lyric in "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now." That song says:

    I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour

    This song says:

    I was drunk in the haze of happy hour

    Heaven knows the narrator of this song sounds miserable!
