Lyrics

Milk and honey on a monday
drinking coffee
words fly across the table
conversation starting up my heart
like an old engine rattling in the dark
minutes turn to hours
and we part on the corner
by the chocolate shop

You are a book I haven’t read yet
a ticket on a plane
to an undiscovered country
where no one knows my name

Friday night, the kids are alright
standing on the corner
jossling over french fries
and trading kisses
We watch them through the glass
catch each others eyes and smile
hesitation in your fingers as they slide across to mine

You are a book I haven’t read yet
a ticket on a plane
to an undiscovered country
where no one knows my name

Crisp winter air creeping up my skin
you walk me to my car
next thing I know
we are listening to records
on your old yellow couch
In this moment,
history dissolves like salt in water
I lean in and kiss you on the mouth
like a magnet finding metal for the first time

You are a book I haven’t read yet
a ticket on a plane
to an undiscovered country
where no one knows my name

Morning finds me
wrapped around you
like a sentence ending with a
question mark
