Lyrics

From out of nowhere – into town I drifted
You were leaning in a doorway
Your broken whisper – in the heat it lingered
On a lazy summer day

I hesitated – for a second
Something simple crossed my mind
Were you the one – so dark and silent
The one I thought I’d left behind?

How was I to know you would rise
Like a burning angel in my eyes
On a lazy summer day

There was a moment so long ago
When I would have paid the price
For being willing to beg the question
I could have kissed you twice

How was I to know you would rise
Like a burning angel in my eyes
But I got lost in the race
I forgot the taste of your desire

On a lazy summer day

How was I to know you would rise
Like a burning angel in my eyes

On a lazy summer day
