Heat of the Moment



I never meant to be so bad to you

One thing I said that I would never do

A look from you and I would fall from grace

And it would wipe the smile right from my face

Do you remember when we used to dance

And incidents arose from circumstance

One thing led to another, we were young

And we would scream together songs unsung



It was the heat of the moment

Telling me what my heart meant

The heat of the moment showed in your eyes


And now you find yourself in '82

The disco hot spots hold no charm for you

You can concern yourself with bigger things

You catch a pearl and ride the dragon's wings




And when your looks have gone and you're alone

How many nights you sit beside the phone

What were the things you wanted for yourself

Teenage ambitions you remember well
