He said, "I've seen you before",
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 were 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.
