about

the two characters in this song are just too clumsy to come together. pretty tragic. or pretty funny. depending on your mood

lyrics

I never noticed her, she was too small
She used to hide inside my sandbox walls
She said I was the nicest boy around
But all I answered was: “I tell your mom you spoiled my house!”

She played the base-drum in a big parade
I saw her marching on the first of may
I shouted from the crowd her sound was great
But all she answered was: “I don’t understand one word you say!”

We were older when we met in a pub
She loved the Beatles and the Wizard of Oz
I made her mixtapes full of heartshaped songs
But all she answered was: “I sold my tapedeck years ago.”

So I invited her to dance at last
I'm not a dancer, but I tried my best
And as I concentrated on my steps
She left me standing and went over there to join her friends

Somehow we made it to this riverboat
The moon was shining, but she’d lost her coat
So hard she trembled, so I offered her mine
But all she answered was: “No need for that, I’m feeling fine.”

and more and more it feels like we’re simply not meant to fall in love.

Last time I met her on a sunny day
She had just been divorced of husband Ray
She said: ”Hello...” with a wink in her eye
But I said: “Sorry! I have to be at home in time!”

More and more I’m sure that we’re simply not meant to fall in love.

No. No. No. No. - we will never make it
No. No. No. No. - we’re not meant to fall in love

she only whispers when she speaks
I'm only staring at my feet
we are too clumsy to succeed
guess we’re not meant to fall in love

No. No. No. No. -We will never make it
No. No. No. No. -We’re not meant to fall in love
No. No. No. No.- We will never make it.
We will never fall in love.
