Can I Take Your Coat?

lyrics

up on the 13th floor of the Mayfair South
if I was the superstitious kind, I’d consider getting out
going down to level ground and planting my feet
but I can recall a similar place to this
something unforgettable, quite like a first kiss
between awkwardness and bliss, and trembling knees

come in can I take your coat
stay awhile, you don’t have to go
you don’t have to leave, the night is young
and so are we, so are we
can I take your coat, stay a while with me

when I first met Sarah she wore a nervous grin
still the kind of smile that doesn’t go out of fashion
I gained a passionate point of view through her eyes
she said, ‘I think that everyone just needs some body to talk with
and that is love in its simplest
it’s not in riches or wishes or cloudy skies’

come in can I take your coat
stay awhile, you don’t have to go
you don’t have to leave, the night is young
and so are we, so are we
can I take your coat, stay a while with me

there are nights when I catch a glimpse of angel wings
there’s music but I’m never sure what song it is
it sounds a little like Bill Morrissey after dark
those are the nights I like to hold on to
they ring like silver, shine like gold, through and through
a love so new is always true at the start
