lyrics

Didn’t you notice that I get kind of nervous
Every time I see you across a room
Nervous glances turn to untaken chances cause I
I just can’t bring myself to talk to you
There’s a shake in my hand and a twist in my tongue
And I can’t understand why this takes me so long

I keep telling myself, “I’ll be over this soon” but
It’s gonna be a long time baby
I keep telling myself, “I’ll be over this soon” but
It’s gonna be a long time baby

I could start it simple, I could start it slow
Til I try, well, I’ll never know, maybe
Just something easy like, “Could I ask you your name?”
“Would you like a drink?” “Just a cup of coffee?”
Hope you don’t turn your face and pretend you never saw me
Cause I’m not starting this all over again

Try to make you smile, say something funny
Treat you like a princess, spend lots of money
Cause girl that smile will be the death of me
Think of something cool, pretend that I said
If it’s someone else’s line I’m taking all the credit
Do all I can to prove that you’re the one for me

I keep telling myself, “I’ll be over this soon” but
It’s gonna be a long time baby
I keep telling myself, “I’ll be over this soon” but
It’s gonna be a long time baby

Try to make you smile, say something funny
Treat you like a princess, spend lots of money
Cause girl that smile will be the death of me
Think of something cool, pretend that I said
If it’s someone else’s line I’m taking all the credit
Do all I can to prove that you’re the one for me
You’re the one for me
You’re the one for me

Didn’t you notice that I get kind of nervous
Every time I se you across a room
Nervous glances turn to untaken chances cause I
I just can’t bring myself to talk to you
