The second track followed literally right behind the first – Annie’s music arriving barely a week after I’d put the lyrics of Rainy Day Delusion to bed.

My mind still filled with thoughts of stalkers and deluded people, I remembered the flashing smile and dark hair of someone I’d recently met. That was enough to set me on a train of thought of how chance meetings can change people’s lives when they least expect it, and how dangerous and destructive such changes can be (if you let them).

 

 

 

Raven hair and diamond eyes that drill me
Not a prayer, I know it’s gonna kill me
We were safe, not looking out for something new

Flash a smile and ask me how I’m doing
All the while there might be something brewing
Would it be so very wrong?
Could it be, we’d get along?

When we met there was a spark between us
Unspoken longing for the dark to screen us
We’re not safe now you’ve seen me and I’ve seen you

I never knew my mind could hold the reins of my heart 
Try as I might I cannot stop this wanting to start

You stand so close, I smell your hair
The scent of magic lingers there
Essence of a bird before she flew

Catch me smiling and my smile’s reflected
Know it’s there: that we are both connected
Look away just as your man walks in the room

Now, when you look right through me, angels tear at my heart
How could you do that to me?  Stop before we could start?

How you move I find it hypnotising
So you prove that there is no disguising
Didn’t want to but I can’t deny it’s true

Electric fingers on my spine are playing
But there’s no doubt we would be betraying
Feels so right and yet it’s wrong
We can’t be; we must be strong

There’s a million other lives we’re leading
We’re not free to satisfy this needing
Turn around, and let my soul walk out with you

I never knew my mind could hold the reins of my heart
Try as I might I cannot stop this wanting to start
Now, when you look right through me, angels tear at my heart

How could you do that to me?  Stop before we could start?
I never knew my mind could hold the reins of my heart
Try as I might I cannot stop this wanting to start
