I've caught the virus, the virus of You Your DNA has become mine too And like viruses do Through all of history I've become a carrier Of your elegant mystery
My symptoms are smiling And being distracted A little naïve and overly romantic The world knows I've got you And I'm contagious In every poem I breathe Over hundreds of pages ...
It was a one time thing In a room of silence A point in time that is now time-less A nervous smile A single tap of your foot Being there as you played Was all it took.
