I know I stand in line, 
Until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance, 
I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me

And afterwards we drop into 
A quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all, 
By saying something stupid
Like "I love you".

I can see it in your eyes, 
That you despise the same old lies
You heard the night before
And though it's just a line to you, 
For me it's true
It never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find 
Some clever lines to say
To make the meaning come through
But then I think I'll wait until 
The evening gets late
And I'm alone with you

The time is right 
Your perfume fills my head, 
The stars get red
And oh the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all, 
By saying something stupid
Like "I love you".
