Ends Like…

First time that we ever talked

Took all I had not to run away

My breath caught and my heart was pounding

And I didn’t know what to say
I feel safe with a fiction story, happy ending locked in for me

But real outcomes are unpredictableAnd now we’re standing close

You and me, and we’re all alone

So much suspense in this first page

‘Cause it starts like

I’m lookin’ forward to seeing where this goes

Seems all right

But I don’t know what this next chapter holds

In real life

The hero doesn’t always get the girl

It starts so nice as the romance grows

But it ends like I don’t knowEh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Ends like I don’t know

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Ends like I don’t–Time passed and we formed a friendship

Heart-to-hearts and coffee dates

Bad jokes at the Chinese restaurant

They kicked us out ‘cause we stayed too lateAnd that night when you leaned in toward me, I saw futures spread before me

But I turned away ‘cause I was scared to fallIf we were archetypes

You would’ve pulled me tight

But that’s just not the real-world way

‘Cause it starts like

I’m lookin’ forward to seeing where this goes

Seems all right

But I don’t know what this next chapter holds

In real life

The hero doesn’t always get the girl

It starts so nice as the romance grows

But it ends like I don’t knowEh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Ends like I don’t know

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Ends like I don’t knowI don’t know, I don’t know

It’s so much easier in prose

Or on screen, where you know

They kiss and the credits roll, hold

On just a minute, it’s my favorite scene until I find myself in it

I’m mesmerized and terrified to see my feelings in your eyes and ohhhhhEnds like I don’t knowStarts like

I’m lookin’ forward to seeing where this goes

Seems all right

But I don’t know what this next chapter holds

In real life

The hero doesn’t always get the girl

It starts so nice as the romance grows

But it ends like I don’t know

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Ends like I don’t know

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Ends like I don’t know
