How did we get here anyway?
Where were you headed when I said your name?
What if I never got it wrong?
Where would we be now if I'd just stayed home?

Often an accidental chance
Never becomes a proper song and dance
But now we're rolling up our sleeves
Make it a habit, turn doubt to belief

Has it been a year? This dream it seems so clear
Taking all your time, and giving all of mine
Haters can't compete with lovers in the street
You make up my mind, please don't fall behind tonight

Am I just waiting in the wings?
Know I'd never push you to formality
Weren't we foxes all along?
Caught in a spotlight where we don't belong

I never cared about the rules
You never cared about the jewels
I always want you in my world
You always want to be my girl

We say we'll take it day by day
But is there any other way?
Aren't we where we're supposed to be?
I'll stay with you, you stay with me, okay...

Look at your abalone ring
A little material, a shell, a thing
Know it was always up to you, baby
No one could ever tell you what to do, could they?
