They held each other close no words louder than a whisper
They said come on, come on, come on.

He held her hand (The night was young)
So long as she could keep up. Holding his attention
Words pulled from scripted lines (fall from curious eyes)
And pushed through liars mouths, spill to conversation
Tonight won’t make a difference. They said as they made their way up, up the stairs.
Audacious aspirations, words surrender to passing glances, to bold advances.

Take back the scars (Take back the scars)
Of broken hearts (Of broken hearts)
They whisper (They whisper)
I want you more

So this is it. What it’s come down to. A bull charade, we’re doing what lovers do.
I’ll hold my breath, you hold me closer. Our lips embrace but I do not love you.
As bodies touch, lost in the motion. Our downs and ups caught in the moment.
If this is wrong then we are right now, living it up as we take each other in.
And for tonight, no cameras rolling. The only sounds are the sounds of in and out.
But like a movie when the sun comes up your name will be on every bodies tongue.

With no romance to object the kiss brings love two takes it back.
The night drags on tucked tight (tucked tight) in a strangers bed.
Bodies touch with such a warm embrace who knew we’d make this mistake
Isn’t this what we both wanted? (They held each other close no words louder than whisper They said come on come on come on)

Is this what I am? (Is this what I am?) Is this who you are? (Is this who you are?)
Is this what I am? (Is this what I am?) Is this who you are? (Is this who you are?)

So take a pen and take some paper and have a seat, it’s time for lecture
Tonight is gone a broken measure. We’re all that’s left or we’re together.
Our bodies touch but a connection could not be made in this confession.
All that I have so let me sing you my most devout no longer breathing.
This whole night, no one was watching the only sound was the sound of a smoking gun
And like a story without an ending, your name will be on every bodies tongue.
(I am the fire. You are the siren. And you were doomed from the start. So pick me up don’t let this fire stop burning hot)

Isn’t this what we both wanted?
Isn’t this what we both wanted?

Is this what I am? (Is this what I am?) Is this who you are? (Is this who you are?) Is this what I am? (Is this what I am?)
Is this who you are?
