Let’s Just Sit
Daniel Kettler

Could she be the "one"
Two seats over
Three feet away
She's right there
She's right here
If we both reached out
Our hands could touch
Our hands could join
I'd pull her closer
If she'd just reach out
Why can't I?
If I'd just reach out

What if I'm wrong?

Let's just sit
Take notes and listen
Let's not move
Not take those chances
Let's just sit
We'll still steal glances
Let's just think
About stealing kisses.

I can smell your perfume all the way over here
It's nice.
