Lyrics

He met her in a cafe just outside of town
She said to him it's been an age
They replayed highlight reels
From teenage days gone by
And wondered how things might have been

When she said

Let's get down to the nitty gritty
Let's get down to the brass tacks
Cause we both think we feel
Like we just might have something real
It's time we laid out all the facts.

They found that spark had grown to be a blaze
Their tempest passion only fanned the flames
He was always mesmerized
Staring at her blue-grey eyes
She fell in love with that tender gaze

So he said

Let's get down to the nitty gritty
Let's get down to the brass tacks
Cause we know how we feel
So let's make a pact and seal the deal
And we can keep this love intact

But the days ahead were full of discontent
They both wondered where the romance went
She expected he
Would always say he wants to leave
And he could not get what she meant

So she said

Let's get down to the nitty gritty
Let's get down to the brass tacks
Cause we both seem to know
Just how the other’s life should go
While we let our own life jump the tracks.

And the last year’s days of enchantment
Turned to this year’s disillusionment
They never thought that it would be so hard
Disappointed expectations
Made them all but want to pack it in
They thought that maybe they should be apart

But they said

Let's get down to the nitty gritty
Let's get down to the brass tacks
Cause this is worth the fight
So let’s stick it out and make it right
And we can get that feeling back

And she said won’t you stay
And things will be okay
And that’s the way
They spent the rest of their days…

He sat by her bedside just outside of town
Held her hand there every day
They replayed highlight reels
From the best parts of their lives
While she was fading in the wind

And he said

Let's get down to the nitty gritty
Let's get down to the brass tacks
I know you have to go
Don’t be afraid you’re halfway home
She smiled at him and shut her eyes…
