What are you gonna say when she picks up the phone?
Should you leave a message if she's not at home?
I wanted to know if you'd like to see a movie or get a drink
It would be cool just to be in your company

But if she says yes know what intentions might be
If one thing leads to another and there's some chemistry
You cannot lie, you have to tell the truth
You have to explain why this could never be, because

There are things that cannot be undone
There are mistakes that will never be forgiven
Sometimes at night, I pray
To wake a different person in a different place

Maybe we could just be friends
I'm being a bit presumptuous
The stomach churns, the mind starts to race
You nervously start to exaggerate

I just want to be young, I want to live
I want to be healthy, I don't want this problem
You wouldn't think something like irresponsibility
Would complicate something like asking for a girl's company

But there are things you must accept as said and done
There are truths you must learn to confront
You can pray all night and day
You'll always wake the same person in the same place

Drunk mouth ruined it again, sometimes I say the dumbest things
Baby, it's not you specifically it could be anybody
I gone and built this up in my head and now it's all already over
It's all ready before it ever started
