lyrics

He’s seen her before, on his way to work.
With the ribbons in her hair.
He does not want to look away,
But she caught him during a stare.

She smiles the biggest smile of all,
‘Cause she’s noticed him aswell.
She likes his big brown eyes,
And his skin like caramel.

A week has passed and everyday,
They try to catch a glimpse.
But they both don’t dare to come in close.
For fear of being a jinx.

Every morning he pays extra mind,
To the colour of his tie.
She’s putting on make-up she thinks he likes.
As a couple more days go by.

Love like a flower, from an early seed,
Taking it’s time to grow.
They both feed it water and sunshine,
To make sure the flower shows.

Then one morning he’s fully convinced,
Determined and resolute.
Today he’ll ask her number and name,
And say she’s very cute.

She’s figured it out, her mind’s made up.
Today’s the day she’ll try.
To say that his caramel skin,
Goes great with that blue tie.

Love like a flower, from an early seed,
Taking it’s time to grow.
They both feed it water and sunshine,
To make sure the flower shows.

Heart’s racing, they’ve gone weak in the knees,
They’re done with the secretive peeks.
They see eachother and exactly in sync.
They both open their mouths to speak.
