lyrics

Passing people by, don’t raise my eyes
Worn out my shoes pacing ‘round just a-thinking ‘bout you, girl
So many hurts, count the scars on my back
Broken trust … can’t relax my guard
But let you go, I don’t know
A hesitation seized my soul

[CHORUS]
A memory of attraction so strong
That passion, how could it be wrong?
I can’t forget it
I can’t regret it
But could we get it back?

Felt it from the first time we laid eyes
Electric charge it filled the air, and arced across the sky
Powder keg lay untouched so long
But we knew the spark would come
The flare of that first time
Under ashes, embers still glow

[CHORUS ]

Swallow me whole, plague my soul
Who’s the winner, who’s in control
Are you playing me once again?
Flay me thrice for just one sin

Can’t cave or back down, no …
But if I stand tall, I fall.
In the last frame of this high-stakes game
No one wants the blame

Angel or harpy, I can feel, you’re as scared as me
Angel or harpy, I can feel, you’re as scared as me

Try again now, give it one more chance
Is there free will
Or are we doomed to lurch and stumble through this dance?
Tired and burned, there’s reluctance to hope
But we’re both reaching for that rope
A hunger deep and wide
Truth is heart, or is it mind?

Remind me of attraction so strong
That passion, how could it be wrong?
I can’t forget it
I can’t regret it
But can we get it back?
I can’t forget it
I won’t regret it
Now have we got it back?
