It's cool this morning
Summer's still two months away
I take a longer-than-usual
Path down Avenue A

Through the alley behind the bar
You call to me
Over the sirens and city noise
Play in my key

Crack a smile
Stand there awhile

Wouldn't you know it?
That's my favorite song
Almost as if you knew
Wouldn't believe it
If I said that this was fate
But it's so nice to meet you!

You ask what I do
Well, it's not quite so cut-and-dried
So, "I'm a writer"
We both smile at my little white lie

Through the alley, shadows hide
The wall where you lean
Under the moonlight and halogen
Play in my scene

Wouldn't you know it?
We'll never meet again
Almost as if you knew
Wouldn't believe it
If I said that this was fate
But it was nice to meet you
