One Night Love Affair...Bryan Adams, 1985.
Angsty 80's songs, from the soundtrack of my life, is my theme for the A-Z challenge this year.
I had the Reckless record album, yes, the black disc that you had to put on a turntable. I could lift that needle and place it down, just so, in the space between the grooves. The crackling sound told me I had hit it just right. As long as I didn't dance around my room with enough force to cause a skip, I was set.
He was not necessarily the silent type, but oh how he caught my eye. We were sophomores in high school, and I don't think I finally looked away (in other words gave up) until the end of junior year. On three isolated occasions during that time-frame I was his before the night was through.
How was I to know
To let my feelings go
I had some delusion, perhaps gleaned from silly love song lyrics if you can believe it, that some stolen kisses and hand holding were going to lead to an epic relationship.
Oh the disappointment...
But I lose control
As I watch you go
All my sense say I'm in this much too deep
Now you're out of reach
And I was no good at...
One night love affair
Pretendin' we don't care
Oh, and now we're left with nothin'
Crushed by a crush.
