You were one in a million
You stood alone …. amidst the crowd
The music started playing
It was playing really loud.

You asked me …. to dance with you
You held me ….. in your arms
I was enthralled, I was enchanted
By your looks and your sweet charm.

You appeared out of nowhere
Began to kiss me tenderly
I never thought that this could happen.
Ever happen like this …. to me.

The chemistry between us
Had ignited a roaring flame
I was bewitched …. consumed with passion
Before I even knew your name.

We met for coffee ….. two days later
At a small, quaint, french cafe
You took my hand in your hand
You took my breath away.
You lived around the corner
Two flights up the stairs
You wanted me there with you
I came along, but I was scared.

A once in a lifetime lover
Felt like …. it was a dream
I couldn’t fight it …. didn’t try
I didn’t run …. I didn’t scream.

Nothing feeling that good
Was ever meant to last
Whatever you were doing
It was happening  too fast.

When it all was over
You were done …. you’d had enough
I had to face the music
What I felt…. could not be love.

I wanted time to stop…. standstill
This moment to last forever
But I knew it wasn’t possible

We weren’t meant to be together.
