Help with ID please - it's not what I thought

Hi, any ideas on this please? I originally thought it was going to be a verbena bon. but it is clearly not that. It has a square stem. Hairy leaves and stem which have no aroma when crushed. No flowers or buds as yet. It's about 2ft now, but looks like it will keep going. It also looks intentionally planted. Maybe.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Thanks. I did wonder, but mine seems like a much chunkier plant, than any I've seen. It's growing almost like a salvia. I think it may have been given to me as a seedling in the autumn. I guess, as ever,when it flowers, it will be straight forward to ID.
