Little Aphrodite

Mittens EP - 4:35
I remember the first night I met you
You brushed past my arm at the bar
And suddenly it was like somebody somewhere
Scraped their keys down the side of my heart
A heart that had been stuck in traffic
At some interminably unchanging red light
You beckoned me off down a side street
And welcomed me into the night.

You're wary and wise like Athena
Like Artemis wild and free
You carry yourself like you're Hera
But quietly you'll always be little Aphrodite to me.

I remember the first night I met you
How could I ever forget
You traded my drinks for across the bar winks
Like a rumour I hadn't heard yet
And when I stumbled into you outside
I said I was sorry, but that was a lie
I'd been waiting for you, and I know that you knew
But you smiled and still acted surprised.

And it's faintly ridiculously for me to be saying I'm sure
But if I had an apple to give then it would be yours
And the others would rage as I turned them away
But you'd follow me down to the shore
And for you I'd start a war, so baby yes I'm sure.

You're wary and wise like Athena
Like Artemis wild and free
You carry yourself like you're Hera
But quietly you'll always be little Aphrodite to me.
