It was a beautiful starry summer night
And the moon shone “oh so bright”
Every star was beckoning me to set my heart free.
Love can give you happiness or pain
And no two are ever the same
I was taken in by the lovely smile
And it lasted for such a long while
Then the eyes pulled me in like a whirlpool
Pulls everything from all around
Deeper and deeper till it reaches ground.
Then the soft gentle touch turned my thoughts into mush.
Then came the lips so soft and sweet, as my heart skipped a beat.
She then had me in her control and I felt I lost my soul
I knew that I would give in – because all of this was done
By the summer wind.
