I know I stand in line until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me;
And if we go some place to dance, I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me.
Then afterward, we go into some quiet little place
And have a drink or two;
And then I go and spoil it all,
By saying something stupid, like, "I love you."

I can see it in your eyes that you despise
The same old lies you heard the night before;
But though it's just a line to you,
For me it's true, and never seemed so right before.

I practice every day to find some clever line to say
To make the meaning come through;
But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late
And I'm alone with you.
The time is right...your perfume fills my head, 
The stars get red, and, oh, the night's so blue,
And then I go and spoil it all,
By saying something stupid, like, "I love you."

I love you I love you.
