Verse 1

Cryptic talk from that January evening,

I'm still trying to decipher its meaning.

I'm still trying to find out what's in your heart.

I catch a glimpse of you and the music starts.

Chorus

Sometimes you stand,

Sometimes I fall.

Background music plays through it all.

Sometimes child's play,

Sometimes Mah-jong.

I listen to your favorite songs.

And they all remind me of the way

I feel about you every day

When I act like you're just a friend.

What a strange coincidence.

Verse 2

You ask questions about my musical taste.

And it ruffles that little hope in my chest.

Could it be your attempt to know me better?

Or did I fall into another crater?

Chorus

Sometimes you stand,

Sometimes I fall.

Background music plays through it all.

Sometimes child's play,

Sometimes Mah-jong.

I listen to your favorite songs.

And they all remind me of the way

I feel about you every day

When I act like you're just a friend.

What a strange coincidence.

Bridge

Cryptic talk from that January evening,

I'm still trying to decipher its meaning.

I'm still trying to figure out if there's any chance

You've turned up the music so we can do the dance.

Yeah, I'm still trying to figure out if there's any chance

I might have also stolen your heart with a stolen glance.

Chorus

Sometimes you stand,

Sometimes I fall.

Background music plays through it all.

Sometimes child's play,

Sometimes Mah-jong.

I listen to your favorite songs.

And they all remind me of the way

I feel about you every day

When I act like you're just a friend.

What a strange coincidence.
