All of Five Seconds

This song is about falling in love with the idea of someone … until you realize it could never work. Maybe they’re too young, or too far away, or on too intense of a career path. In the last few years, I’ve learned that making a relationship work requires more than just love and devotion; it takes the right timing, compatibility, proximity, common values and goals, aligned career paths, a shared love of guacamole, and so much more. So instead of risking heartbreak, you enjoy the reverie of what could be … for all of five seconds 🙂

It took me all of five seconds to fall in love with you
And I don’t know how to play it cool
Oh no I never was good at flirting in school
When I see you I just want to run and hide
I should be better at this at 29

It took you all of five seconds to make me fall for you

How did you do it it’s not fair
I’m tongue tied frozen
One look from you makes me cuckoo
I’m melting into

Sunsets on the hammock swing
Friday nights at home spent tap dancing
Slowly waking up to sweet nothings
If only this were real and not a day dream

I’m so hopelessly doomed, I don’t know what to do

Now I know that we could never be
Because you’re on a different path than me
Love is not the only thing you need
But still a girl can hope and dream

Can I have more than five seconds, more than five seconds, more than five
seconds with you

I want more than five seconds, more than five seconds, more than five seconds
with you

I’d like more than five seconds with you
I know that you feel something too
But I don’t want you to break my heart
So I’ll leave before you make a mark

I’ll take all of five seconds in place of eternity
Because that’s how it’s meant to be!
