We work late and I pretend
That I don’t notice when you’re next to me
But I do.
I might be mistaken,
But I sometimes get the feeling that
You notice too.
And I know this place that’s near here,
Quiet dark and small.
When we’re finished here
I think that I may want a beer,
How about you?
It’d be nice to go out drinking with you.
You would think that
We’ve danced around each other long enough to know
Where we stand.
And my heart stops in a panic
When I think how it would feel
To finally hold your hand.
So, we wait for this to happen,
Or make it happen now.
Either way I think
That we should start off with a drink,
Be nice to go out drinking with you
No big deal, we can play it
Nice and cool and keep the pressure off,
Invite our friends.
And we’ll have a few too many,
We’ll discreetly share a cab home
When the evening ends.
When we reach that awkward moment,
Standing at your door
We won’t even know
'Cause we’ll just smile and let it go
And sail on through.
And it’d be nice to go out drinking with you.
