It’s the sound the clock makes
When it cracks through the cardboard
It’s the way your heels click
When you walk up the stairs to my door
I put The Grifters on
Just before you come

I bought the wine you like
California red, pinot blend
I’m wearing my best shirt and jeans
I smell like a million bucks
When you look like me you need to give a...
Cause it doesn’t come naturally, obviously

I’ve been working at the grocery store, baby
I’ve been working in the deli
I didn’t think I’d end up here
Oh no no no not really
I’ve been working at the grocery store, baby
I’ve been working in the deli

You went to school in a town upstate
Moved into your parent’s place in the city
You got a job with your dad’s senator friend
On the city planning committee
And you decide where the bus stops go
You decide and the bus stops go
I have to admit, that’s kind of sexy

I quit school at 17
Moved into New York at the turn of the century
I left home with a thousand bucks I made landscaping every
But I wanna turn you on
I really wanna turn you on
It’s a long shot
But I’m ready
