Briefest of Affairs

lyrics

I was only human so
There was no chance I’d say no
When you asked me to stay and to dance with you
We’d found ourselves lost on the
other side of the world both searching
for a moment we might not forget for a while

So when our eyes locked across the room
Something told me to make the move

I swear right then I was in love with you
And just for one night I stole your heart too
The daybreak seemed to end it all too soon
But I knew
Though likely nothing would become of it
We’d both admit soon to reality
Wont stop us pretending we meant something
But I knew
And you knew
And we knew

I was only fighting myself so
I stopped trying to reason and just let go
Let the moon take us wherever it wanted to
Then I kissed you and held you and all I heard
Was the sound of your heartbeat, your next few words
Were like music I’d waited my whole life to hear

We spent the night like tomorrow was
The last day on earth for both of us

I swear right then I was in love with you
And just for one night I stole your heart too
The daybreak seemed to end it all too soon
But I knew
Though likely nothing would become of it
We’d both admit soon to reality
Wont stop us pretending we meant something
But I knew
And you knew
And we knew

That morning I walked home on my own
We’d both lied to each other when we said we’d phone
The truth is baby we never really cared
We simply needed each other right then and there

I swear right then I was in love with you
And just for one night I stole your heart too
The daybreak seemed to end it all too soon
And its true
Though nothing ever did become of it
We found our moment that we’d not forget
By briefly pretending we’d be something
But I knew
And you knew
And we knew
