(These Just Aren't) Pickup Lines
Copyright © Lee L. Halvorsen, 2000



I saw you across the crowded room, sitting here all alone.
Believe me, I'm not looking for a one-night stand.
I just thought we could talk and maybe pass the time.
You just look like you sure could use a friend.

It's sure nice talking tonight with someone like you.
I wish this night could go on forever.
I don't want to overstep my bounds, but I'd like to see you again.
Before you go, I just need to say these few more words…

       Did it hurt when you fell, fell from heaven?
       Your daddy must have been a thief, 'cause he stole the stars for your eyes.
       I'm new around these parts; could you please show me the way to your heart?
       Girl, these just aren't Pickup Lines!

Please stop looking at me like I'm just like all the rest.
You're not the only one to doubt that there's Love at First Sight.
All I ask is that you see me again and give me the chance to prove...
That I sincerely meant every word I said tonight.
