Phosphorescent – New Birth in New England Lyrics

New Birth in New England by Phosphorescent

I was sitting at a bar in New England
I was thinking about another beer
It had a lady playing on the piano
It was like it never got to my ears

I said, “Hey, I like it how you play the piano”
She just said, “Honey, what are you doing here?”
I said, “Well, I’m sitting in a bar in New England
I was thinking about another beer”

She said, “Don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?”

It was the very first time you laid eyes on me
Your momma burst into tears
We were shaking in the medical basement
I guess everything was on [arrears?]

I was staring like a fool at the camera
Just saying, “Honey, what are you doing here?”
It was the very first time I laid eyes on you
Your momma burst into tears

I said, “Don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?”

“And don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?”

I was sitting at a bar in New England
I was thinking about another beer
It had a lady playing on the piano
Yeah, it was like it never got to my ears

I said, “Hey, I like it how you play the piano”
She just said, “Honey, what are you doing here?”
I said, “Well, I’m sitting in a bar in New England
I was thinking about another beer”

She said, “Don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?”

“Don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?
Honey, don’t I know you?”
