Don't get me wrong
If I'm looking kind of dazzled
I see neon lights
Whenever you walk by

Don't get me wrong
If you say, "hello", and I take a ride
Upon a sea where the mystic moon
Is playing havoc with the tide
Don't get me wrong

Don't get me wrong
If I'm acting so distracted
I'm thinking about the fireworks
That go off when you smile

Don't get me wrong
If I split like light refracted
I'm only off to wander
Across a moonlit mile

Once in a while, two people meet
Seemingly for no reason
They just pass on the street
Suddenly, thunder showers everywhere
Who can explain the thunder and rain?
But there's something in the air

Don't get me wrong
If I come and go like fashion
I might be great tomorrow
But hopeless yesterday

Don't get me wrong
If I fall in the mode of fashion
It might be unbelievable
But let's not say, "so long"
It might just be fantastic
Don't get me wrong

    General Commenti know this feeling this is a nice song. she seems uneasy and weird around the guy, and he probably thinks she's got some dislike for him, but really she just can't look at him with out freaking out a little and getting nervous.

    General CommentI agree with both datewiththenight and Sunnyhill...
    This song just makes me instantly happy. It's uplifting and fun. The awkwardness sparked by a new attraction is an addictive, giddy feeling. The imagery 'neon lights', 'fireworks' captures the essence of falling for someone. Such an awesome song.

    General CommentI think this song is just them both knowing fully well that one loves the other, and the feeling is returned. She is really doing some hard-core flirting here. It really gives off the feel of a summer romance kind of thing, talking about the rain, thunder, fireworks, etc. Such a cute song. Love it!
