lyrics

Following the strands of her loosened hair,
Caught with fire points of sunlight snared.
Soft spoken she draws me in and I am helpless,
Like the last wisp of evening on the wind, her caress.

All's a gale as I cross the street
A thunderclap hail spurs the soles of my feet.
Soft spoken she draws me in when I am restless,
Like the last wisp of evening on the wind, her caress.

She said, 'Ours are not like butterfly's wings
But more like the moth blindly fluttering;
We don't know if we're caught
By light bulbs or pure flame,
Let us just be enraptured.

All my discordance she blends into tune
My staccato nerves she yields to a swoon.
And I know this is sudden, I know we should take heed,
But the involuntary nature of this feeling can't be restrained.

She said, 'Ours are not like butterfly's wings
But more like the moth blindly fluttering;
We don't know if we're caught
By light bulbs or pure flame,
Let us just be enraptured.'

'The beauty is in the act whatever
Its end may be, we might steal
A glimpse through the veil or
Simply fail. We can't know yet
So let us just be enraptured.'
