lyrics

Our lips went for a stroll
last evening around nine
I meant to introduce them
when your mouth met mine
Is this what nearly falling
off a cliff feels like,
in your eyes, on the edge,
faltering?
A pocketful of hesitation,
and I'll never know what
could have been so grand
A spoonful of your love
could cure my hopeless state
I am tempted to stay around
We could take advantage of tonight
and have an elevator ride
To the top of the Ferris Wheel
where the operator
will hold it still
Surprise in the familiar;
there can be comfort in the unknown
A pocketful of hesitation,
and I'll never know what
could have been so grand
A spoonful of your love
could cure my hopeless state
I am tempted to stay around
Well, we never went
to ride the Ferris Wheel
