This song is by Arkells and appears on the album High Noon (2014).

You were all done up,
But it wasn't for me.
You were up at the front
To tap on your feet.
I was back at the bar.
You had your eyes on the stage.
You had an "X" on your hand
To tell them your age.

I didn't put my money on it.
But I was
Hoping that you would be here.
If I was something that you ever wanted,
I'm all ears.

You made a wish at 11:11.
I held your hips at 12:34.
There was a kiss just waiting to happen.
A cab was calling outside the door.

Oh, I knew from the beginning.
Oh, it was you from the beginning.

Excuses disguised
All the ones before.
I've been convincing myself
They could be something more.
I said, "If you go home
And you get on the phone,
And you tell your girlfriends about me,
I'll go home
And I'll sleep on my own,
And dream of a girl named Lonnie."

I couldn't hold a candle to ya,
But you were glowing in the dark.
I was nervous just standing with ya.
You were glowing in the dark.

And you weren't even trying --
Your dirty blonde hair
Had me going wild.
You were a little bit shy then.
There's no denying something so true
