Soundtrack for a moment...

For a smile they can share the night...
Their shadows searching in the night...
Hiding, somewhere in the night...

She ran, she smiled
he laughed and said "hey man"
with a smug look of satisfaction
as if he'd caught me being a loser
but all I could wonder was if he'd ever seen her like this
if he'd shared this moment
her bright eyes, sparkling
her quivering lip, slightly pursed, as if it was holding everything else in her face together
alive, happy


maybe I'm delusional
maybe it was pity
maybe I'm just projecting how I felt
happy to know what I thought was once dead
was not
