Heathrow airport central bus station, Christmas 2008. It was the year of the fog surrounding London and a lot of incoming and outbound flights were delayed or cancelled, plus late. My flight from Sicily was late, therefore I missed my bus home and was lucky enough to catch the next one, so, I grabbed a coffee at central bus station, waiting for the bus. A guy in the queue in front of me, started to talk to me and and we put the world to rights' for a few hours, as he was travelling to Scotland and I was headed too Somerset. I think if I hadn't been so reserved, I think this man would asked me for a drink, although he had originally come from Australia, as it was though, we said our goodbyes and that was that! Anyway, I wrote this song a few days after, thinking about if he had asked me out and the anticipation of a first date, but knowing it was a lot more than that and where would it lead??
Think sixties do-wop 'Do run run' type mixed up with "Christmas wrapping' by the Waitresses.
