when she said hello lyrics – catch 7

living in bed alone with his thoughts for a companion
talking to shadows on the wall
another shot of vodka and a cry that cuts the darkness
then there’s a knock at the door
standing in his hallway staring at the silouette on his porch
who is this at 2:19 am
he turns on the porch light and she squints at the brightness
then she smiles at the friendly face within
and when she said h*llo the nervousness was gone
when she said h*llo all the shadows left the wall
when she said h*llo they were both up in the sky
and when she said h*llo…
a friend from the past with a friendly face to greet him
she was as pretty as he recalled
the nervousness surrounds him and he hasn’t even touched the door
unlocking the barrier he lets her in
and when she said h*llo the nervousness was gone
when she said h*llo all the shadows left the wall
when she said h*llo they were both up in the sky
and when she said h*llo…he replied
it’s great to see you it’s great to see you she said
he invited her in and made some joe
offered her a smoke and lit it up for her
they relived the memories from years past
the memories, the memories from years past
and when she said h*llo the nervousness was gone
when she said h*llo the shadows left the wall
and when she said h*llo they were both up in the sky
and when she said h*llo…
at 4:22 am she said she had to leave
she apologized for coming so late at night
no apology needed he said as he walked her to her door
a hug and a kiss and she was gone
but when she said h*llo the nervousness left him
when she said h*llo the shadows left the wall
now that she’s gone he’s alone with his thoughts again
and yet there is hope till she comes around to say h*llo again
h*llo again
