lyrics

The lights were dim when we walked in
Glasses clinked, drinks weren't cheap
Conversation suffered, static grew
It was so ordinary and so similar to every other night
That I could not believe my luck when I saw you

We danced eye-to-eye, spirits soaring so high
We swung and we glided along
We kissed in the corner of a crowded floor
To the beat of anonymous songs

You and I will never meet again
So tonight's the night, I won't waste your time pretending
This is any more than a moment, we'll live it then it's gone
We dove in side by side, our clothes still on

The colors seemed to melt into the rainbow of the disco ball
A moving black hole, collapsed star
Played from unfamiliar speakers, we still knew the song
We recognized it, we fucking sang along

We deepened our trance, we continued to dance
The crowd pulsed, it beat like a drum
We wouldn't stand for it, we surely ignored
All or nothing was better than some

The lights came on and the realization flickered
In your blue sky eyes, the cloud cover moved in quicker
We walked out the door, smiling as we turned to face the night beyond
It tastes sweeter after you, strawberry blonde
