Lyrics

I'm half asleep

And you're still working on my coffee

Where would you be

Without your ginseng root and herbal tea?

Already late, maybe this was just a huge mistake

To bring you home with me

Instead of going out to eat.

 

First dates aren't supposed to wake up next to me

Women in the know simply leave when it is time to go.

Bagel in the toaster,  a smudge of cream cheese

I stare at you and realize you might be one to keep.

 

Don't get me wrong, I wanna fall in love again

It’s been quite some time, I don’t even think I can

I try to please, they always leave

I know it's probably me

And my best laid plans. 

 

I admit there's something sexy ‘bout you sitting there

All naked on my sofa dripping honey on my brand new chair

There's something very strange when I catch you burning holes through me

You get that goofy look just like you robbed a bank and took me hostage

 

And will you be here when I get back home?

Maybe you could stick around, it doesn’t matter if you don’t

I’d liked to see you all dressed up and show you off uptown

Never mind, I’ll pull the covers back down. 

 

Don't get me wrong, I wanna fall in love again

It’s been quite some time, I don’t even think I can

I try to please, they always leave

I know it's probably me

And my best laid plans. 

 

Tick tick tock goes the bedroom clock

Staring at the ceiling and I can't escape this feeling

That you're slightly confused

But much more amused

At my unexplained aloofness

When you’re looking for your boots.

 

I must have been asleep when you whispered my name

You left so quietly  as softly as you came.

I felt no kiss, no lips upon my cheek

You must have left so silently.

 

 

Don't get me wrong, I wanna fall in love again

It’s been quite some time,  I don’t even think I can

I try to please, hey always leave

I know it's probably me

And my best laid plans. 

 

 

I lay my head down on the pillow where

Just hours before you left, you'd surrendered there

To me,

I drifted off and found a place where I would safe

It's tragic when you fall on love

And fail to recognize her face.
