Verse 1

David and Sarah had bought two tickets for that Friday's game.

They cancelled; Dave said wasting the tickets would be a shame.

So they gave me one, and the other to some guy I didn't know.

I'm not really into sports to be honest, but somehow I decided to go.

Verse 2

I dressed in a casual tee, and matched my shoes with my denim.

I found my seat in the crowd, and that was the first time I saw him.

He gave me a smile, and I kept asking things I couldn't understand.

It felt so natural that I didn't even notice when he'd taken my hand.

Chorus

And then suddenly we were on the big screen.

People chanting for us, he was slowly leaning in.

Shocked and nervous, I could only stare into his eyes.

Our lips touched, and in a second I could feel sparks fly.

I was in a trance; my eyelids were slowly drifting shut.

I wondered if he could hear the drum-roll in my heart.

When he pulled back, he finally asked me my name.

And I knew my life had changed cause of that Friday's game.

Verse 3

He called me two days later to ask me out on our first real date.

I couldn't pay attention to the movie, I only wondered if it was fate.

When I told him this, he laughed, and I stared at his gorgeous face.

He told me I was adorable, and that he had thought so too, yes.

Chorus

And in my mind we were on the big screen.

Everyone else blurred, he was slowly leaning in.

Sighing contently, I could only stare into his eyes.

Our lips touched, and in a second I could feel sparks fly.

I was in a trance; my eyelids were slowly drifting shut.

I wondered if he could hear the drum-roll in my heart.

I knew that moment- nothing would ever be the same.

And I knew my life'd change cause of that Friday's game.

Bridge

It had been two years, and we had been happy so far.

Our apartment would always buzz with the sound of laughter.

But I was getting impatient; I wondered when he would ask.

He must have known; I've never hidden my feelings behind a mask.

On Tuesday, he asked me if I'd like to go to that Friday's game.

I shrugged, and agreed. And then that big day came.

Chorus

And then suddenly we were on the big screen.

He was on his knee, holding out the diamond ring.

Shocked and thrilled, I could only nod while I cried.

Our lips touched, and in a second I could feel sparks fly.

I was in a trance; my eyelids were slowly drifting shut.

I knew that he could hear the drum-roll in my heart.

The next twenty years hang on our walls in photo frames.

And I knew my life had changed cause of that Friday's game.
