Verse 1:
It was somewhere in between the crossing of that street
And stepping on the other side that I became aware of time
And I could swear, the big and little hands on 3:16
Were pointing right at you--slightly back and right of me

And that's when I thought
Of what I'd give to take this day as something we'd celebrate
Each passing month
It made me have to pause
To stop and look around for cameras

Chorus:
I'm waiting for someone to say, "Cut the take,"
It's way too picture perfect, a scene unlikely to occur 'cause it's
A chance so golden it should only have a hold on the silver screen
Why would it happen to me?
Oh I... maybe I shouldn't doubt
Just keep my mouth shut, let go
Enjoying how it all plays out

Verse 2:
It was halfway down that block, my balance seemed to stop
And I was sober but I had to try to walk in a straight line
'Cause it was like gravity would pull me to your side
And my fingers would tingle when yours happened to brush mine

And that's when I thought
If forces out of our control were pulling strings to keep us close
And like a response
To what I had in mind
You tripped I caught you and then we caught eyes

Chorus:
I'm waiting for someone to say, "Cut the take,"
It's way too picture perfect, a scene unlikely to occur 'cause it's
A chance so golden it should only have a hold on the silver screen
Why would it happen to me?
Oh I... maybe I shouldn't doubt
Just keep my mouth shut, let go
Enjoying how it all plays out

Bridge:
Next comes the part when
We stay at an arm's length
But we have our arms bent
And I swear that all of this
Seems to be following a script

Verse 3:
And now I'm inches from your lips where distance makes no sense
And I could hear the credits roll as I moved in...

Chorus:
I'm waiting for someone to say, "Cut the take,"
It's way too picture perfect, a scene unlikely to occur 'cause it's
A chance so golden it should only have a hold on the silver screen
But thank God it happened to me
Oh I... maybe I shouldn't doubt
Just keep my mouth shut, let go
Enjoying how it all plays out
