Didn't See It Coming

  • A sky blue limo rolls past me on the street outside
    And I saw your face like some sort of neon dream
    And of all the cars and the bars and the stars on Sunset Boulevard
    I saw you and you couldn't tell me what that means
    Or what I'd seen

    Oh but when it hit me
    It was not the same thing
    I had missed it all like tears in the rain
    Finally I was seeing
    Everything so clearly
    Took what I'd been thinking
    And washed it away

    I didn't see it coming
    I didn't see it coming
    I didn't see it coming,
    Coming, coming, coming, coming, coming, coming
    I didn't see it coming

    Well the streetlights flickered
    And the hot air sighed
    The conversation it stopped on a dime
    A cruise missile flying into this little
    Land of these naive dreams of mine
    And I was told don't speak with your mouth open
    But I couldn't help it cause you had chosen
    As I watched that sky blue limo drive away

    Oh but when it hit me
    It was not the same thing
    I had missed it all like tears in the rain
    Finally I was seeing
    Everything so clearly
    Took what I'd been thinking
    And washed it away

    I didn't see it coming
    I didn't see it coming
    I didn't see it coming
    Coming, coming, coming, coming, coming, coming
    I didn't see it coming

    A little skin
    A little money
    A little taste
    A little honey
    A little white lie
    But if you love it
    Tell me who am I to judge?

    A little skin
    A little money
    A little taste
    A little honey
    A little white lie
    But if you love it
    Tell me who am I to judge?

    A little skin
    A little money
    A little taste
    A little honey
    A little white lie
    But if you love it
    Tell me who am I to judge?
    I didn't see it coming
    I didn't see it coming
    I didn't see it coming
    Coming, coming, coming, coming, coming, coming
    I didn't see it coming
    I didn't see it coming Writer/s: WILL ANDERSON
