I saw you crossing the parking lot
While I was pushing a grocery cart
I thought you noticed but no I guess it's not why you came

So I made my way up to you
Said hello can I help you out with that
You looked confused, I looked confused and that's when I cracked

I told you I was the Quarterback
You said, "How about that?"

It was a lie, just to get you to call me
It was a lie, just to know your name
It was a lie, but I won't say I'm sorry
Till I know you're mine

Yea I know I don't look that cool
Driving my grandmother's Malibu
But I'm persistent for days and I got gas in the tank

Now you're starting to walk away
I say, "Hey can I take you for a date?"
That broke your stride, I couldn't hide the smile on my face

I told you I was a millionaire
You said, "How about that?"

It was a lie, just to get you to call me
It was a lie, just to know your name
It was a lie, and I won't say I'm sorry
Till I know you're mine

Baby when you
See the light
You'll be mine
You know you'll be mine

Oh baby when you
See the light
I'll be there
You know I'll be there

It was a lie, just to get you to call me
It was a lie, just to know your name
It was a lie, and I won't say I'm sorry
Till I know you're mine
Till I know you're mine
Till I know you're mine
Till I know you're mine

Song facts

"'Quarterback' is part fact, part fiction, all centering around a trip to the grocery store. I remember getting out of the car and seeing a high-school aged, cart-pushing employee gawking at a cute customer. That's where the facts end. In my head, I was running through their storyline; how far would you go to impress a stranger, knowing that just for a little bit, you can be anyone you want to be?" - Gabe Simon
