Ember (Jack and a Girl)

Time has flown by
We have fluttered with the wind
We have had other lovers
And we both have sinned
Now I stand before you
My heart still beats for you
I can see in your eyes
That yours is beating too
Our past does not matter
Nor what we once were
Whenever you are around
Something seems to stir
Nothing else comes close
To how you make me feel
No one else matters
Or ever seems so real
Maybe there will be a day
That we will not be scared
Who will be the one to say
Who will be the one that dared
Until then I am happy
To embrace you in the night
And walk away come morning
With a memory of light
