(C. Carson Parks)

I know I'd 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'd drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I'd 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 from me
It's true and never seemed so right before

I practise everyday to find some clever lines
To say to make the meaning come true
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'd go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you

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