Single minded

The music for the dancing hid my sighs
With every move I felt her heavy gaze
The rest of life was lost inside a haze
And as she danced she never moved her eyes
        She didn’t even glance at other guys
        She made me feel that she was always mine
        The first time in my life I felt divine
        And as she danced she never moved her eyes
She stood before my door a sweet surprise
When does a man get such a perfect chance
She stripped away my shyness in her dance
And as she danced she never moved her eyes
      The music for the dancing hid my sighs
      And as she danced she never moved her eyes

The time on such occasions always flies
And in her arms the world just flew away
Another life was started on that day
And as she danced she never moved her eyes
      The bedroom filled with soft seductive cries
      My passion grew with every single kiss
      I did not know that life could be like this
      And as she danced she never moved her eyes
I knew that all of this was built on lies
She’ll only be a lover not a wife
Monogamy would never be her life
And as she danced she never moved her eyes
      The time on such occasions always flies
      And as she danced she never moved her eyes
