Setting: The shop was called “The Asteroid”. Out of this world. The smell of cheap incense. Posters and stacks of CD’s like some kind of altar. Racks of vintage vinyl LP’s waiting to be flipped through. The power&possibility of it all was intoxicating.

i walk through the door at the record store
and i see her there
the girl who runs the place has such a face
that i stop and stare
she’s so attractive
one look and i am crushed
she’s radio-active
rock & roll pixie dust
she could change my life from Lo-Fi to stereo

oh no -- she is way too much
oh no -- don’t wanna say too much but
one look at her and i am crushed

i try to catch her eye but i’m feeling shy
and i blow my chance
so i look for my disc but i have to risk
just one more glance
she’s so attractive
i sneak a peek and i am crushed
she seems distracted
i don’t how we’ll hook up
but if it’s meant to be, i’m gonna meet this dynamo

oh no -- she is way too much
oh no -- i can’t say too much ‘cause
my tongue is tied and my heart is crushed

she walks up to me and i get to see
her pop-rock smile
the cd in my hand is her favorite band
she says, “I like your style”
she’s so attractive
one word and i am crushed
we interact
and i think i see her blush
now it's the first time in my life
i feel like i could play Romeo

oh no -- girl, you are way too much
oh no -- forgive me if i say too much but
one look at you and i was
