Lyrics

Nothing Personal

Drew James © 2004

 

I sat down beside her at Rancho Rob’s café

The stools were close together, yet she seemed so far away

I ordered some coffee and she said I’ll take more

Then she looked in my direction as the waitress stood and poured

So I asked her, ”Have you been in here before?”

 

Then she said, “It’s nothing personal my friend,

But my last romance just came to bitter end

And I just can’t go through that all again

Until my heart’s had time to mend

It’s nothing personal my friend”

 

I said, “I am sorry, I was trying to break the ice”

Then she broke into a smile and said, “That’s OK you seem nice”

 

Then we spent the evening talking and she said, “Please walk me home.”

When we got to her apartment she said, “Don’t leave me alone.”

Then she closed her eyes and kissed me soft and slow

Then whispered these words soft and low

 

She said, “It’s nothing personal my friend,

But my last romance came to such a bitter end

That I want you to stay here if you can

And help my heart to mend

It’s nothing personal my friend”

 

Each day with her was better than the day before

She opened up a world to me that I had not explored

Then one day, as I knocked upon her door

I noticed a note laying on the floor

 

And it said, “It’s nothing personal my friend,

But my last romance just called me up again

Now I’ve left to be there next to him

I hope you understand

It’s nothing personal my friend”

 

Months had passed when I went back to Rancho Rob’s Café

And there she was sitting in exactly the same place

She noticed me the moment that I walked in the door

Then she walked across the room and said, “I have missed you so.”

But before she could say one word more

 

I said, “It’s nothing personal my friend,

But our last romance just came to such a bitter end

That I just can’t go through that all again

I hope you understand

It’s nothing personal my friend”
