lyrics

Nobody's listening
The beers are flowing
I hear talks about the weather, or what they had for dinner
Or how our current government is going

The guy running things gets up on stage
He tries to sound enthusiastic but his confidence has waned
And he motions to a girl who's gonna get up a sing
But most of the patrons don't notice a thing

Until she sits down
And picks up a guitar
She puts the capo on the 2nd fret
And starts to pour out her heart

And then the conversations drift away
Cos there's nothing much left to say
The smokers poke their heads round the door
And the regular drinkers forgot what they came in for

And if someone had told me I'd find the one
In a bar on a Wednesday I'd have said yeah right
But here I am
And there you are
And I'm falling in love
At an open mic night

Her fingers strum the chords so delicately as she plays
Her voice rings through the room, I'll remember it for days
And the crowd bursts into applause as she finishes that song
She smiles timidly and launches into another one

But the crowd lose interest because that's what crowds do
So it's only me left listening when she's about halfway through
And I spend the next six minutes just trying to catch her eye
But she's just so lost in the music, she looks like she might cry

And if someone had told me I'd find the one
In a bar on a Wednesday I'd have said yeah right
But here I am
And there you are
And I'm falling in love
At an open mic night

When she's done the conversation takes over
I'm up next so I wander over toward her
I tell her I loved her set and she smiles and walks away
So after my introduction I get up and start to say



Well if someone had told me I'd find the one
In a bar on a Wednesday I'd have said yeah right
But here I am
And there you are
And I'm falling in love
At an open mic night

And if someone had told me I'd find the one
In a bar on a Wednesday I'd have said yeah right
But here I am
And there you are
And I'm falling in love
At an open mic night
