A love song for 2020. Or maybe in spite of it.

lyrics

I spent a year alone beside the telephone
Nobody answers but everyone’s home
Maybe somebody will call me back later
But we can’t go out anyway

And so I’m killing time with the television
I could learn a language or take up religion
But what kinda god would throw us all together
Only to keep us apart
It’s breaking my heart

Now I could I try to fill the void by stuffing my face
But there’s nothing but stale cheerios at my place
I meant to go shopping but left it til later
Yes, I am the worlds greatest procrastinator
Now there’s only mustard in my frigerator
So I guess I should suit up and head down the street to the store

And then I saw you there in the dairy aisle
And I thought that maybe I could see a smile
Hiding there just behind the mask
And I had to work up the courage to ask you out

But as I approached I was filled with doubt
And I could still feel my heart reaching out
But it’s getting hard to make love anymore
Cuz we have to stay six feet apart at the grocery store

And though a plague has set upon the land
If you let me take you by the hand
Then together we will understand
What it means it to be in love

When I looked up again you had disappeared
So I ran down the aisle past the cases of beer
And I felt my throat welling up with the fear
That I might never see you again

But as our eyes meet up at the check out
I can feel my heart start to freak out
Let’s tear off our masks and just make out
In front of everyone

But it’s getting hard to make love anymore
Cuz we have to stay six feet apart at the grocery store
