And it starts... Sometime around midnight Or at least that's when You lose yourself For a minute or two
As you stand... Under the barlights And the band plays some song About forgetting yourself for a while And the piano's this melancholy soundtrack To her smile And that white dress she's wearing You haven't seen her For a while
But you know... That she's watching She's laughing, she's turning She's holding her tonic like a cross The room suddenly spinning She walks up and asks how you are So you can smell her perfume You can see her lying naked in your arms
And so there's a change... In your emotions And all of these memories come rushing Like feral waves to your mind Of the curl of your bodies Like two perfect circles entwined And you feel hopeless, and homeless And lost in the haze Of the wine..
