"Love At First Light" lyrics - JOE JACKSON

"Love At First Light"

It's the crack of noon
And I sit here watching you sleeping
I only wish that I could remember your name
But I know it's written on a matchbook somewhere
So maybe I'll find it, and maybe you'll care
Or maybe you'll fix me with one of those stares
And put up a fight

So when you awake I admit I'm relieved
As you flash me a smile like a diamond
And just for a moment I almost believe
In love at first light

I propose a breakfast of coffee and aspirin
You laugh, suggesting a raw egg or two
But oh was it ever so good being bad
Like a couple of vampires, deliciously mad
Saying this is the best blood that we've ever had
So we drank it all night

And if we untangle the webs that we weave
Then maybe there's room for more laughter
'Cause just for a moment I almost believe
In love at first light

Feeling cold
You put a robe round my shoulders
Smile and pull one of your favourite books from my shelf
Let's open the curtains and let out the dark
And if the sun doesn't melt us and there's still a spark
And we do something human like walk in the park
The spark could ignite

So maybe I'm moonstruck, or maybe naive
But I know there's a God and a Devil
So maybe I'm crazy enough to believe
In love at first light
