Scott Helman Lyrics – Chinese Restaurant

I wish I was your comfort
I built you a nest you’d be my blue bird
I’d shut out the world that don’t deserve you
And I’d make you a home, a home, a home, a home

If I was your journal
You could tell me everything you yearn for
I’d be the fragile pages that you turn to
When you feel alone, alone, alone, alone

Ooooh
I only saw you once, in a Chinese restaurant
You had your hoodie up
Beer in a styrofoam cup
I didn’t have the guts to talk you up
Ooooh
I only saw you once, in a Chinese restaurant

I could be your boyfriend
Your counterpart, your lover and your best friend
The hole in the fence a the dead end
Some body you can get into debt with
Come’er

Ooooh
I only saw you once, in a Chinese restaurant
You had your hoodie up
Beer in a styrofoam cup
I didn’t have the guts to talk you up
Ooooh
I only saw you once, in a Chinese restaurant
I swear that we locked tight
Under the florescent lights
I didn’t have the guts to talk you up

I only saw you once but somehow I know I’m bad for you
I only saw you once so tell me why I’d die for you
And all these other girls, I see them ’round but they won’t do
Tell me where are you now, where are you now
Oh Oh

Ooooh
I only saw you once, in a Chinese restaurant
You had your hoodie up
Beer in a styrofoam cup
I didn’t have the guts to talk you up
Ooooh
I only saw you once, in a Chinese restaurant
I swear that we locked tight
Under the florescent lights
I didn’t have the guts to talk you up

I wish I was your comfort
I built you a nest you’d be my blue bird
I’d shut out the world that don’t deserve you
And I’d make you a home
