lyrics

Half-empty glass sitting on the shelf
Some half-empty promise I could make
With a little frosting on your fingertips
You pull the candles from the cake
And all at once I see how the story ends
The story right there in your eyes
I can see the big plot twist comin up
I can see
The October surprise

There are shadows now, hiding things from me
Shadows falling everyplace
I turn the light back on and I look around the room
Shadows still there on your face

We were young --- we had fun
You had fun --- with me
But it's clear --- all my fear
Nothin here --- to see

It was summer when you and I first met
Night-blooming jasmine had its way
Remember, you asked me what I thought true love might be
And I'm still thinking what to say
Looking back on it, all the lows and highs
That first day, what did we see?
It wasn't stars, it was fireworks in our eyes
Now it's just
The October surprise
Now it's just
The October surprise
And now I see
The October surprise
First time I see
The October surprise
First time I see
The October surprise
First time I see
First time I see
First time I see
