It's that second date and you really, really don't want to screw up and you really, really want things to go well and you really, really like this person - but have you read the signals right?


I thought it was going well
But you were leaving early so I found it hard to tell
I said let’s do this again
You said ‘Sure but next time why don’t we eat in?’

I been wrong before
I been wrong before
There were times in my mind
When I thought I done fine
But I been wrong before

See I tidied up the flat
Did the washing up and shut away the cat
Not exactly five star but
We got a takeout and I plumped the cushions up

Put your favourite programme on
Is that cos you feel at home or is this thing going wrong?
Yeah, I like this one too
One more thing we got in common so maybe this is proof

Well we seem to be alright
But is this kiss the evening’s end or starting off the night?
Like to think the meaning’s plain
But you’ll likely take offence if I ask you to explain
