Bittersweet Love

Twinkling stars act as my light

Set the scene, it's going just right

Friends here and there, and strangers too

And that's how I came to meet you

Moon and fire light up our faces

Our dancing fills up the spaces

And as I twirl around I see

You sip your drink and glance at me

The electricity is real

That surefire spark that we both feel

Our liquid courage helps conceal

How scared and lonely we both feel

Forget the darkness tonight, love

We burn brighter than sunlight, love

Jump in the air to take flight, and

We'll go someplace where sea meets sand

Somewhere secret where no one knows

Just how far we're willing to go

Make music from our beating hearts

And pay no mind to their remarks

The electricity is real

That surefire spark that we both feel

If I let go please take the wheel

And steer us down a path where hearts can heal

Your eyes twinkle as you draw near

Your voice drowns out all of my fear

Sweet words delivered with a smile

And for the first time in a while

I know exactly what I want

My mind, your starry eyes will haunt

Until my days come to an end

Why did I fall for you, my friend?

What's wrong and what's right

Is it worth the fight

Will this spark ignite

I think it just might

The electricity was real

That surefire spark that we both feel

Faded with time, what an ordeal

With love at first sight, my heart you did steal

The love in those eyes just felt so real...
