He raped her with his eyes the minute she walked into the office
As she stretched to hang her coat behind the door
He beamed a smile so big, she could have filled it
With helium and flown off across the countryside

He tried very hard to invite her out for lunch
But like most women she could sense the underlying note
Of danger, her instincts kept him at a safe distance
And then he made her a coffee and the steam rose across her face

It could be you, it could be me
We'll have to wait, we'll have to see
It's all for sale now that it's time
To take a short break

The sensation of safety and the little boy ambition
To drive around mountain roads makes a woman mad
For attention she hides the car keys, he turns the place upside down And then looks out the window through the French blinds
To see the car off in the distance

A cloud of country dust feathers the sunlight
As she smiles into the windscreen
What can he do but wait patiently
Folding a coin through his fingers

It could be you, it could be me
We'll have to wait, we'll have to see
It's all for sale now that it's time
To take a short break

There she is again, this time with a pair of jeans
Being pulled slowly up over the curves of her body
He plays guitar in the rocking chair
These are the jeans of our forefathers
These are the jeans of the 21st century

Because this is the new world
Where television and eye become one
As we look down the digital telescope into the future
And now it's time for a short break

It could be you, it could be me
We'll have to wait, we'll have to see
It's all for sale now that it's time
It's lighter than air

Whiter than white draft in a can
The price is right, save as you go
The drive of your life, it's good to talk
We say hello, we say goodbye deep frozen days

It could be you, it could be me
It's all for sale now that it's time
To take a short break
