Wasn't Expecting That

  • It was only a smile but my heart it went wild
    I wasn't expecting that
    Just a delicate kiss, anyone could've missed
    I wasn't expecting that

    Did I misread the sign?
    Your hand slipped into mine
    I wasn't expecting that
    You spent the night in my bed,
    You woke up and you said
    "Well, I wasn't expecting that"

    I thought love wasn't meant to last,
    I thought you were just passing through
    If I ever get the nerve to ask
    What did I get right to deserve somebody like you?
    I wasn't expecting that
    It was only a word, it was almost mis-heard
    I wasn't expecting that
    But it came without fear,
    A month turned into a year
    I wasn't expecting that

    I thought love wasn't meant to last,
    Honey, I thought you were just passing through
    If I ever get the nerve to ask
    What did I get right to deserve somebody like you?
    I wasn't expecting that

    Isn't it strange how a life can be changed
    In the flicker of the sweetest smile
    We were married in spring
    You know I wouldn't change a thing
    Without that innocent kiss, what a life I'd have missed

    If you'd not took a chance on a little romance
    When I wasn't expecting that
    Time doesn't take long, three kids up and gone
    I wasn't expecting that
    When the nurses they came, said it's come back again
    I wasn't expecting that
    Then you closed your eyes, you took my heart by surprise
    I wasn't expecting that! Writer/s: Jamie Lawson
