I know I stand in line until you think
You have the time to spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance
I know that there's a chance you won't be leaving with me
And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two......
And then I go and spoil it all by saying
Something stupid like I love you

I can see it in your eyes that you despise
The same old lines you heard the night before......
And though it's just a line to you for me it's true......
And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever lines
To say to make the meaning come true......
But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late
And I'm alone with you
The time is right your perfume fills my head......
The stars get red and oh the night's so blue......
And then I go and spoil it all by saying
Something stupid like I love you

    MemoryI've been the one to say something stupid too early and too often ruined my chances. My current GF stopped me as I was again about to say something stupid too early. We've been together now almost four years and yes she did fall in love with me.

    My InterpretationThis song is about being in psychotherapy and falling for your therapist.
    It's how you think you love someone where you shouldnt, but those things happen naturally in these settings.
    It's like being one of her clients and waiting in line to get seen, then knowing she's at work and she hears same crap every evening from her other clients. Prepping for therapy and then looking for words to confess and regretting it afterwards.
    Haha, doubt anyone will agree on this.
