An Affair Of The Heart

Post by Casey H » Mon Oct 26, 2020 6:42 am

Please don't block quote the entire lyric as I sometimes remove later. :D

What's are your reactions to these lyrics, intended for female singer (Film/TV)? Thoughts? Do you read them as youthful or mature? (Either is OK, just curious). What storyline/situation do you see in your head from this?

Thanks! :D

AFFAIR OF THE HEART

(VERSE)
The nights are lonely but I’m not alone
I lay in bed thinking of you
I dreamed that I kissed you and you kissed me back
But then I awoke way too soon
Tomorrow I’ll see your beautiful face
We’ll talk and we’ll laugh and we’ll flirt
And keep a safe distance
And pretend nobody gets hurt

(CHORUS)
I love you so much though we never touch
Here I am falling apart
I know this is wrong but where do we go now
With this affair of the heart
I love you so much though we never touch
Inches are miles apart
I know this is wrong but what do we do now
With this affair of the heart

(VERSE)
I whisper secrets, ones I never share
At home in the dark of the night
With you it’s so easy to just be myself
Your words always gentle and kind
We’re two souls with a glimpse of how it could be
Just a few minutes a day
Maybe it’s not real, just fantasy
Or maybe I met you too late

(CHORUS)

Casey,
Definitely grown up lyrics...the picture it paints for me is that this person is married/in a relationship but has found a connection with someone else, hence "affair of the heart." Definitely resonates as a forbidden love song...You may love the person you are with but you are IN LOVE with this new person. Interesting concept I see synching well with a scene about an office romance or where a marriage is clearly over but no divorce has taken place. I know you are a veteran at this, but I think it's a strong song. I really like the chorus.
