Take a Trip
Music & lyrics by Beth Portman, copyright 2015

I'm on a trip I got a ticket and a place to sit
Caught the train at a quarter to nine and I'm feeling fine
My bags are packed and there's no looking back
I'll take in this lovely view that's what I'll do

At the FIRST STOP -That's the place where I see you for the very first time
FIRST STOP - You're getting on the same rail line
Oh but will you notice me, oh will you notice me, mm will you notice me
You walk on down the aisle to find yourself a seat
You find one there in front of my two feet
Then you smile at me, oh how you smile at me, mm how you smile at me
Oh could this be

Let's take a trip I got a ticket and a place to sit
Just set yourself down by my side and well take a ride
Our bags are packed and there's no looking back
We'll take in this lovely view that's what we'll do

At the NEXT STEP - We both find out we share a love of books
NEXT STOP - Between our words we give each other looks that say
I notice you, oh yes I notice you, mm I notice you
We laugh at little things and talk about our day
The rhythmic rocking of the cabin helps us sway
Into a new romance, oh such romance, mm sweet romance
Let's take a chance

Let's take a trip I got a ticket and a place to sit
Just set yourself down by my side and well take a ride
Our bags are packed and there's no looking back
We'll take in this lovely view that's what we'll do

All aboard it's time for sweet affection - Aaaaaall abooooard!
All aboard let's make a new connection
You and I, you and I, we can't say goodbye

We could exchange our numbers and hope to get a ring
Or take a step and say "I do" to doing this crazy thing
We can be each other's honey as we gaze up at the moon
Or take a rocket ship we'll be there soon

Oh let's take a trip I got a tickets and a place to sit
Just set yourself down by my side and we'll take a ride
Our bags are packed and there's no looking back
We'll take in this lovely view that's what we'll do
Oh we're on a trip, got a tickets and a place to sit
Just set yourself down by my side and we'll take a ride
Oh we'll take a ride Oh we'll take a ride cause we're on a trip.
