Your face looks pretty in the city weather
Your mind’s a bit hazy but it’s always clever
and your smile
could make me feel alive.

But all the while I’ve been thinkin’ bout a song to write you
and I’m stuck with the chorus and the verses too
I don’t know
Just want to get you on my side.

I wanna stick with something classy but equally smart
That comes from the head but also the heart
So you
Can appreciate it to.

Cos I know you like a guy who's smart enough to handle himself,
You’re not into the biceps, into the wealth
You just want the truth
And that’s something I can do

I’d play it for you when we’re in the park,
play it for you till the day goes dark.
It’s a symbolism of who we are
and who we could be
me and you
you and me…

Now I know it seems I’m kinda getting ahead of myself
Thinking of you then me then nothing else
But I just
Can’t help myself, you see:

I wanna talk to you but when you’ve got your face on
all the guys run home and form a cue.
So I’ll just sit back here, think of something neat to say
with my pen and my paper, let the lyrics flow their way to you
I just want to know you know you..


Now I’m thinking as I come to the end of writing
Is this song really good or is it just fine
Well I guess that’s up for you
To decide…

I can see us singing there in the Summer City
Play the last chord to indicate the song has finished
to which you’d reply:
‘One more time’

[Chorus x2]
