lyrics

I wanted to kiss you, but I was afraid
if you didn't want to the magic would fade
and I could have been braver, I could have shot straight
but the cake was so perfect, I felt the icing could wait

But the magic was there, that's no question
we all felt something on that night
but your house is your home
and it was time to turn out the lights

Normally I would you, or at least ask to your face
but your signals were unclear so I did not push the pace
put my cards on the table after the game was done
now I can't seem to let go of that one night of fun

I know faint hearts never won fair lady
maybe some hearts are too fair for me
hope you'll always remember me fondly
and are flattered, not scared off, by embarassing honesty

In case it is what you wanted, guess I wanted to say
that I still think about it to this very day
but none of it would be worth it if you turned me away
so I used my discretion and hoped the magic would stay

Guess there's always the future, maybe in the next life
I could be your next suitor, you could be my next wife
yeah I could have been braver, I could have shot straight
but the cake was so perfect, I felt the icing could wait
