Well, a moon sank as the wind blew
And the street lights slowly died
Yeah, they call you the wild one
Said, "stay away from her"
Said, "she could love no one if she tried"

But then something I saw
In your eyes told me right away
That you were gonna have to be mine
When the strangest feeling came over me
Down inside, no matter what it takes
I'll never get over how good it felt
When you finally held me
I will never regret
Baby, those few hours
Will grow in my head
Forever

Well, it's too bad, but I want you
To know I understand
Yeah, it's been a long time but I don't mind
Yeah, it's all right, I understand

Because something I saw
In your eyes told me right away
That you were gonna have to be mine
When the strangest feeling came over me
Down inside, I knew right away
I'll never get over how good it felt
When you finally kissed me
I will never regret
Baby, those few hours
Will grow in my head
Forever
And ever

    General CommentMy favorite TP song. His voice is just filled with emotion as he recounts the tale and how no matter what, and no matter what anyone else said, he knew he had to take the chance and be with this person. His realization the others were correct and he's been hurt, doesn't matter to him. The memory he has of being with her is still all important to him and he has no regrets.
