A song about the first night spent at your lover's house


When I woke up you were sleeping
And I thought it would be neat
If I could fix you breakfast
And surprise you with a treat

But I’ve been here twenty minutes
And I don’t know where to start
I can’t see where you keep stuff
I can’t tell your things apart

And I’m laughing at myself
Being useless feeling pleased
I just want to make you smile
When you wake up and see me

Cos this was our first night
Bit of a surprise night
I asked and you said right
Maybe we could try it
And we came to your place
A home and a warm space
You let me see your true face
And took me to your place

Early light shines through your window
Room is warmed by quiet dawn
Your face peaking round the doorway
Your smile breaking through a yawn

Everything alright? you ask me
What is it you’re looking for?
I was gonna bring you something
Couldn’t find your cupboard door

Come here, you said. Your arm around me
Held me while you got some cups
Made some coffee, got the corn flakes
Sat me down and kissed my lips

And this is our first day
A kind of a test day
But I’m going to say
I’m having the best day
With you in your place
A home and a warm space
A beautiful true face
Together in your place
