When the lights are low, and red at all their favorite bars

I was on my couch, you were on my screen, one of us was stoned

Oh, you'll make me cry when it comes to an end

I practice speeches in private
I was impressed with my every line
I think we call that performing
That's not how I want to spend my life

Normal Thing Song Lyrics

Normal Thing by Gracie Abrams


It's a normal thing to fall in love with movie stars
When the lights are low, and red at all their favorite bars
And the story you want is the story you get
Are you special or was this all scripted in his head?

[Interlude]
Mm, mm-mm

[Verse 2]
I remember when I saw your face not long ago
I was on my couch, you were on my screen, one of us was stoned
And the plotline was rare, swear I felt you right there
Maybe that was the beginning of our love affair

[Pre-Chorus]
I did my pacing and reeling
I even think it looked cute at times
I know there's more than that feeling
I didn't know it for most my life

[Chorus]
Don't worry, I know I'll see you again
Oh, you'll make me cry when it comes to an end
You were great, what a show, but I don't recommend
Getting close, that's how it goes, but I'll see you again
[Verse 3]
It's a normal thing for me to become underwhelmed
But I get the point, I see it all, you're something else
Couldn't you go quiet?
No one noticed, I did
But I notice everything so you're not different

[Pre-Chorus]
I practice speeches in private
I was impressed with my every line
I think we call that performing
That's not how I want to spend my life

[Chorus]
Don't worry, I know I'll see you again
Oh, you'll make me cry when it comes to an end
You were all that we hoped, but I can't recommend
Getting close, I should've known, but I'll see you again

[Bridge]
Had a good time, but I guess I'll see ya
You're a good guy, but I guess I'll see ya (You're a good guy, but I guess I'll see ya)
And you changed my life, but I guess I'll see ya
'Cause it's over now, so I guess I'll see ya (I guess I'll)

[Outro]
I know now, but I guess I'll see ya (I guess)
I know now, but I guess I'll see ya (I know now, but I)
I know now, but I guess I'll see ya (I know, I know)
