That One Night

Couple after the rain

Funny thing about that night –
I had known her for so long
But somehow I’d never noticed
Just how wonderful she was

But then – everything was right;
We both felt a pull so strong –
A chance that was once remotest,
Now? More probable than cause

And that night we came together
Sunk back down then came again;
Twisting in the night like ivy
Tangled up like fishing wire

But we came and went like weather
Never got back what had been;
We had acted too unwisely
And been burned by one night’s fire
