lyrics

I didn’t know you’d be keen
And maybe it’s just the drink
Tonight you’re buzzing on me
Tomorrow what will you think?

And “Why are you single
When you’re such a catch?”
But you flip it around
And now you’re asking me that

Just want a sober exchange
At the end of the day

We went out to the bar
Knowing just about where we’d end up
Played a couple of fools
But then I guess that might be what we are

And while you’re living two lies
Some of us are just trying to live one
But you’ll do what you like
And, it seems, so will I

Just want a sober exchange
At the end of the day
And I’ll have nothing to blame
In a sober exchange

And there on the lawn
All the stars, they just saw us as dust
We nervously laughed
All our words spilling out on the grass

My eyes found your eyes
And my lips found your lips, yeah, we kissed
In the morning you left
Disappearing into a cold mist

Just want a sober exchange
At the end of the day
And I’ll have nothing to blame
For the way I behave
In a sober exchange

Riding around town on the cheap
We were nothing unique
Just a couple of sneaks

Feelings will go and then we will know
We were nothing unique
Just a couple of sneaks

All of the time you played on my mind
We were nothing unique
Just a couple of sneaks
