"What Would Happen" as written by and Meredith Anne Brooks....
Electricity, eye to eye
Hey don't I know you
I can't speak
Stripped my senses
On the spot
I've never been defenseless
I can't even make sense of this
You speak and I don't hear a word

What would happen if we kissed
Would your tongue slip past my lips
Would you run away, would you stay
Or would I melt into you
Mouth to mouth, lust to lust
Spontaneously combust

The room is spinning out of control
Act like you didn't notice
Brushed my hand

Forbidden fruit
Ring on my finger
You're such a moral, moral man
You throw it away, no question
Will I pretend I'm innocent

What would happen if we kissed
Would your tongue slip past my lips
Would you run away, would you stay
Or would I melt into you
Mouth to mouth, lust to lust
Spontaneously combust

I struggle with myself again
Quickly the walls are crumbling
Don't know if I can turn away

What would happen if we kissed
Would your tongue slip past my lips
Would you run away, would you stay
Or would I melt into you
Mouth to mouth, lust to lust
Spontaneously combust

    General Commentshe's married, but she wants another man. since she's bound by wedlock, he's not going to do anything. this song speaks about longing and lust.

    General Commenteveryone knows what it feels like to want someone you can't have, whether for moral/ethical/practical reasons, and the agony and pleasure that go with that wanting. this song tells it eloquently!
