The Bakery

I wish you would have smiled in the bakery
Or sat on a tatty settee
At some mutual friend’s gathering

And the more you keep on looking
The more it’s hard to take
Love, we’re in stalemate

To never meet is surely where we’re bound
There’s one in every town
Just there to grind you down

I wish I would have seen you in the post office
Well, maybe I did and I missed it
Too busy with a mind on clever rhymes

Why not the rounder’s pitch or the canteen?
You’re slacking, love, where have you been?
Just had to go and wait until tonight

So give me the invite
Don’t worry, it’s alright

I wish I would have seen you down in the arcade
Sipping on a lemonade
In the paper cup and chewing on the straw

And I wish I’d seen you in the bakery
If I’d seen you in the bakery
You probably wouldn’t have seen me
