As the band broke into Misty
I put one hand on the bar
The whole room by then
Was starting to spin
I said, 'you've got Hemingway's eyes.'
And that night I called him papa
It seems that there are so many lovers
Who hold you and yet
Whose name you forget
Dance, they said
Life is only for the moment
The light is brief
Don't waste it
The taste is sweet, so taste it
So I said 'I understand
I'm dancing as fast as I can.'
Maybe we're just shooting stars
Needing something to hold on to
But each thing we touch seems to vanish
Like candles and friends
They burn at both ends
He said, 'I'll see you around.'
And as I brushed my hair
I winked and said, 'you might.'
'Cause I know by now how it's done
After all the mornings after
And all the nights
