(lyrics by Mike Cisneros, music by Joe)
It’s taken me weeks to feel like this
The moment of your truth is coming soon
What’s passed me by before your kiss:
Hours, flowers, skies filled bright with moon
You couldn’t pick me out of the crowd
That is a wrong I would like to rectify
Is one evening more than I am allowed,
To catch your mind, your heart – if not your eye?
Am I really that simple? Do I fit this profile?
I know I’ll change your mind, if you stay with me a while
Stay with me a while
I know you fear the morning after – it’s a sickness we all endure
I just want that morning after
I don’t understand how you can be so sure
Ain’t it cold when you wake up alone?
Just because I can win at pool
That doesn’t make me a misspent youth
I studied Wittgenstein in school
Three parts gin, one part vermouth
You don’t need to accept my friends
I just might be the exception
The possibility all depends
On your brand new crystal clear perception
