OUR AFFAIR
WRITER CARLY SIMON
What a perfect night
Secrets lights up the sky
Like fireflies do
ThereÂ's nothing but a silky hope
That old opiate
Between me and you
DonÂ't look now
WeÂ're just about there
WeÂ're just one little breath away
From our affair
From our affair
DonÂ't move too fast
DonÂ't run scared
WeÂ're just one surrender away
From our affair
DonÂ't you feel like
YouÂ're coming down with something
Some great fancy flu
DonÂ't you feel like youÂ're
Coming down with me
And it doesnÂ't get sicker than you
DonÂ't you feel like this is the really good part
Where itÂ's still up in the air
The perfect romance is never
Stated or sated, deflated or fair
DonÂ't admit it yet
And donÂ't stop saying your prayers
WeÂ're just one little heartbeat away
From our affair
From our affair
ThereÂ's a light in my window
And a little red ladybug in my hair
Just one turn down an empty street
Away,away, away
From our affair
From our affair
ThereÂ's a white-hot desire
Of which I am pleasantly aware
Just one more "wait a minute baby"
Away, away, away, away
From our affair
From our affair
From our affair
