Collect Call

The night was of something
Out of this world
It gave me time to think
Of just this girl

The car was warm
Outside was rainy
I pulled over
Could she save me

I phoned collect
To see if she’d accept
Even though all we’d done
Is briefly met

Her happiness
Took me by surprise
Just as did
Her stunning eyes

We agreed on
The perfect date
A chance to see
Her pretty face

I don’t mind waiting
It’s all I know
I just want love
To see it grow

And like her I hope
I don’t mind trying
It seems like most
Just don’t mind dying

Perhaps this date
Will be a start
For me a chance
To win her heart
