We’re just starting out

But we’ve taken a step in

You blush at my mention

Of a weakness we share

It makes us special because

It keeps us safe

 

So you move closer

Sit by me to show me

How to see inside

You turn your face to mine

Your kind eyes exploring mine

 

You angle toward me

A soft kindness spreading

My heart’s up for the taking

And your shoulder’s open

But I do not rest yet

 

At the station sitting on this bench

We’re here waiting arm to arm

After the train comes and we go

I want to step out arm in arm

Then together we’ll venture into new land

We’ll discover in each other a bond we share

With the train’s arrival, love comes out

Then we get on board.

It’s Love’s arrival at our gate.

Love’s arriving at our gate.

We’re at love’s gates

 

We came separately

But we’re both here

Sitting out the delay

I comment on you

And you keep me entertained

 

We tell stories

From magazines of ourselves

Casually flipping colored pages

Before settling in for a show

We watch lives unfold

As we wonder what’s next

 

As the train approaches

People mistake our first encounter

For love growing

They see a tenderness in us

And a potential between us

I’ll see you off, and I’ll wait

 

At the station sitting on this bench

We’re here waiting arm to arm

After the train comes and we go

I want to step out arm in arm

Then together we’ll venture into new land

We’ll discover in each other a bond we share

With the train’s arrival, love comes out

Then we get on board.

It’s Love’s arrival at our gate.

Love’s arriving at our gate.

We’re at love’s gates

 

My head leans close

But just above you

You shift yourself lower

To make it possible

For us to adjust

A contact seeming soon

 

I look up into your eyes

And you look into mine

As we check the excitement

Of what we see out the window

 

You like my laugh

And smile when I like your cars

So we travel together

Figuring out our plan

For after the train stops

And we step down the stairs

 

At the station sitting on this bench

We’re here waiting arm to arm

After the train comes and we go

I want to step out arm in arm

Then together we’ll venture into new land

We’ll discover in each other a bond we share

With the train’s arrival, love comes out

Then we get on board.

It’s Love’s arrival at our gate.

Love’s arriving at our gate.

We’re at love’s gates.

 

This time we’ve arrived together

You step down and turn around

You look back at me

To show me your hand

I place mine in yours and follow

Our thumbs lock us in motion

As we emerge at love’s gate
