Was it just a coincidence
As soon as I dropped my defense
You came walking in through my front door?
Could it have been insistence
That divided all the distance
Between what our eyes had to hide?

Behind closed doors
My hand held in yours
There was only one thing I could do

I started counting
Your heartbeats,
One at a time,
The sound was so sweet.
If I could sail
Behind your eyes,
In the middle of the night,
Then I would open them up
So once again you could penetrate my insides.

Could I have been so confident
To offer you this compliment
If it was something that I did not feel?
Now there burns a single flame
One I hope that will remain
As we jump from happy page to page.

Could I count your heartbeats again
One at a time
Until I comprehend?
If I could sail
Behind those eyes,
In the middle of the night,
Then I would open them up
So once again you could penetrate my insides.
