lyrics

I opened my heart so briefly to you, in the
Blink of an eye like a bold from the blue, I
Opened my heart so briefly to you but you’re
In, you are in, yeah you’re in.

I opened my heart in the crack of a whip, like a
Single-lease reflex, a tear or a rip. I
Opened my heart so briefly to you but you’re
In, you are in, yeah you’re in. And it will

Take some time to stop crying. And it will
Take some time to forget. And it will
Take some time to get you out of my system, I
Hope there’s a system for regret.

I opened my heart in the slam of a door, in the
Crash of a wave, did I do it at all? I
Opened my heart so briefly to you but you’re
In, you are in, yeah you’re in. And it will

Take some to start laughing again, and it will
Take some time to forgive. And it will
Take some time to get you out of my system I hope there’s a
System called live and let live.

Like a thief in the night you slipped under my skin, like a
snide sideways glance or that last swig of gin. I’m
Immersed I am drunk, you got into my blood but you’re
In, you are in, yeah you’re in.
