between the sheets

I caught your eyes staring
And I wondered why you were so daring
I pictured you in a scenario 
Where you and I were reciting a story
a story that had no ending

I came back to reality
And I realized I was dreaming
I smiled because I wanted us to meet
at least talk we can explore this maturity

I walked towards you thinking I would be able to talk
but my mouth became silent as the thief in the night
I got so tongue tied I couldn't even say hi
what a bum I thought..

lol you looked at me and smiled 
oh hi beautiful you said
I instantly lost all insecurities
because your assured me security
I got held captive by your words
but I did not mind the sentence I had to serve
as long as I got to hear voice

even between the sheets we shared 
you still gave me my share
above all things that seems to be there
I managed to take your dare

I fell in love I know it was not fair
but I could not help it otherwise I would have been left in a tear
I became hostage to my feelings'
and the ransom was your heart
I followed my flair so I could get some air

I swear this was never the plan
but everything switched gear 
and now we have to bare

in between the sheets is where we found our story
in between these sheets is where we learned to be
in between these sheets is where I would like to remain
