lyrics

I went for the kiss goodnight.
I was nervous, but I thought that it felt right.
But just when your eyelids fluttered down,
you hit the ground.
So I picked you up off the lawn
and put you in your bed with your clothes on.
You woke up with the sun to start your day--
I had just hit the hay.

Your lovely eyes intrigue me,
but how I wish they wouldn't close so freely.
When you start to nod off I know
again tonight I'm gonna wind up alone.

Next time we met in the afternoon.
Your jiggly ass and silly faces made me swoon.
Farmers market, and a berry pie to go,
with a large espresso.
But after dinner and two glasses of wine,
you were sleepy, we were running out of time.
I tried to make a move but it was too late--
your head just fell on your plate.

Larks and owls don't sing similar songs.
They don't even tend to get along.
But I don't think it's presumptuous
to say that love has found the two of us.
I'll spend a night staring at the wall
if I can spend it with you.

I'll stick beside you, you know.
When you're out cold, I got no place else to go.
Even sleeping you distract me from myself
better than anyone else.
And when you roll out of bed at dawn,
I'll have already put the kettle on
and be right there with you to watch the sunrise.
Won't you be surprised?

Your lovely eyes intrigue me,
but how I wish they wouldn't close so freely.
When you start to nod off I know
again tonight I'm gonna wind up alone--
but not really alone.
