Give me a slap in the face, make it a hard one too
Because this moment of grace has got me all but confused
Every second of the time we've been here
I'm thinking about how I've wasted those years                   
And now that you've got me off guard
Don't let me go too far

This ain't no romantic place, a coffee shop in a mall
But just after seeing your face my heart prepared for a fall
But it's no time to be in such a state
I just spent 3 years on a glorified date
If you're who you say that you are
Don't let me go too far

Lead Break

Everyone told me when you least expect
There'll be stars in your eyes and a thump in your chest
But I'm still being cautious we've only just met
And one day I'll reach for the stars, 'til then don't let me go too far
One day I'll reach for the stars, 'til then don't let me go too far

You always find and write such great subjects always so human is hard to review a master of words...loved the song....

wow, got me with your slap in the face--reminds me of dylan allot, nice overall vibe! realistic lyrics help this too...

I love this song! It tells a story of a couple that just met...and the guy is cautious. He's been burned before (love: Just spent 3 years on a glorified date). This is a super original refreshing writer. Great job setting the stage and developing the story. The hook is perfect and fits each verse aptly. The fiddle gets 5 stars for augmenting the story with masterful playing. This is all around just a great, great song and I wish you the best with it!
