about

for J and J, in lieu of an apology.

lyrics

You weren't alone, but neither was I
We could have moved on, but nobody tried
I lit a match, you asked for a light
We started with names and occupations
Cold and impersonal explanations
But I felt you simmer under the light

We were in love, and everything felt fine
But we are restless bathing in moonlight
And nobody's looking, so we don't need a reason to hide

I felt the touch of your lips on my skin, but it wasn't you I
Needed, wanted; we fell for a lie and I've only got one
Chance left to do this right, and you're not the one for me
So I apologize but I didn't lie, I still want you close to me
So if it's your words in my ear, telling me things I'm missing or your
Fingers drawing near, to pull me in closer, and tell me you want more
We're too hot to last, two burning hearts too close
We catch fire and we never let go
We burn and we never let go

I was alone, staring at the starlight
You were just searching for the right time
I lit a match, you asked for a light
We started with names and occupations
Moved onto hopes and dreams
If we took a walk, where would we go?
And how do they know what they don't know?

I felt the touch of your lips on my skin, but it wasn't you I
Needed, wanted; we fell for a lie and I've only got one
Chance left to do this right, and you're not the one for me
So I apologize but I didn't lie, I still want you close to me
So if it's your words in my ear, telling me things I'm missing or your
Fingers drawing near, to pull me in closer, and tell me you want more
We're too hot to last, two burning hearts too close
We catch fire and we never let go
We burn and we never let go

I felt the touch of your lips on my skin, but it wasn't you I
Needed, wanted; we fell for a lie and I've only got one
Chance left to do this right, and you're not the one for me
So I apologize but I didn't lie, I still want you close to me
So if it's your words in my ear, telling me things I'm missing or your
Fingers drawing near, to pull me in closer, and tell me you want more
We're too hot to last, two burning hearts too close
We catch fire and we never let go
We burn and we never let go
