VERSE 1

 

An hour ago I was dazed.

 

Hoping my day might progress.

 

Luckily, that's when I met you.

 

 

In spite of the time, you amazed.

 

I'm so impressed.

 

Now I have to confess:

 

I foresee divine things we can do.

 

 

CHORUS

 

I wish you could take me home.

 

But I'm not sure you live alone.

 

Before I put my heart in(to) danger,

 

I'm looking (hard) for a clue.

 

There's no ring upon that finger.

 

Or a personal tattoo.

 

Still, you belong to somebody,

 

Don't you?

 

 

BRIDGE

 

I'm not the kind to kiss and tell.

 

Or sing sad ballads like Adelle.

 

But listen up, ladies, and you'll understand:

 

Things don't always turn out as planned.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

He chuckled in a way that said,

 

Neither a clear yea or nay.

 

Surely he knew it was showtime.

 

 

But we didn't end up in bed.

 

Needless to say.

 

He just had to be gay.

 

Which explains why he dressed so sublime.

 

 

CHORUS

 

I wish you could take me home.

 

But I'm not sure you live alone.

 

Before I put my heart in(to) danger,

 

I'm looking (hard) for a clue.

 

There's no ring upon that finger.

 

Or A personal tattoo.

 

Still, you belong to somebody,

 

Don't you?

 

The End
