Aw, it's just lunch at Chipotle
It doesn't gotta be a will-they-won't-they
I'm no Ross and you're no Rachael
And even though we're not exactly angels
We're laughing because we know it's innocent
And in a sense, maybe they're insolent
Believing duly any truth to the rumor
That sooner or later we'll be coming due for a nooner
I don't want a piece of that pie
I just want to work a little nine to five
I wait for the break 'cause with you it ain't fake
And a little conversation makes the work day fly
Grab a cup of coffee, chat about Ghadafi
Share a glance over a couple of color copies
And go home, that's the end of the day

When it's all cloak and dagger and you're lying low
That's not my kind of romance
But when you walk with that swagger everybody knows
And then we can't undance
The dance

Last week you really took to me
Now you won't even look at me
Like, that's it? That's all, the end?
Like I'd ever want to talk about that night again
It was supposed to be a happy hour
You were drinking ritas, I was drinking sours
We both got sloshed, we both shoulda stopped
But we both got snubbed for the same stupid job
Promotion, overrun by emotion
Everything fuzzy from drinking too much potion
When the clock read twelve-o-five
We knew neither one of us could drive
I read too much into a goodnight hug
We split a cab home and forgot to split up
Up before the sun with a throbbing head
So I left your bed


So now we don't talk about it
But can we not talk about how we don't talk about it?
We didn't consider the cost about it
Maybe there was love lost about it
Look, I'm not messing with your life
You got a boyfriend? Good, I got a wife
Who would dump my butt so I'm keeping it shut
Even though you probably know it's really tough to do
Everybody's got skeleton closets
I had a skeleton key, but I lost it
So for the sake of Pete, can I make you believe
That I'm really not in love with you?
