I caught you looking at me
From across that room
Like the fires of Pompeii
The air began to burn

Your eyes met mine,
They're the brightest blue
So crystalline
And the next thing I knew

There's a million reasons this should work
Unless we're buried in ashes
You're not him and I can't replace her
So there's a likelihood we'll both get hurt
There's a likelihood we'll both get burned
We should walk away
Just walk away

We were dancing in circles
While the band played on
Like two constellations
Trying to outrun the sun

When we finally met
And it all fell away
Like time stood still
My heart wanted to stay


Between shots of tequila
And the stories you told
We're courting with disaster
If one of us should fold

Now it's 2am
And time to go home
Maybe its for the best
If we pretend we never met?
