I don't remember quite how I met you
Wasn't long ago
Just get a picture of sun in your eyes
The waves in your hair
 Maybe it's something said in a movie or
You could've said last night 
Just took me out on a limb
And I don't really know what I'm doing here

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide 
My beat's so in time, can you look at me
I'm out of reach, I'll talk if it feels right
I've had my last chance on the stairway 

 Funny it's just like a scene out of Voltaire  Twisting out of sight 
'Cause when all the curtains are pulled back
We'll turn and see the circles we've traced 
Ain't no game (ooh)
When you're playing with fire
It doesn't seem right that we fight 
So the party runs on all night 

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide 
My beat's so in time, can you look at me
I'm out of reach I'll talk if it feels right
So nervous to say, tell me can't you see
And if you want I'll fall out forever 
I can't say no more, baby dance with me
And please don't say leave it 'til later 
I've had my last chance on the stairway 

 Wonder why, (wonder why ooh)
What makes me rise so high
 Maybe it's something they put in your perfume 
Or the look in your eyes
It could be the atmosphere sinking
Ooh, I don't know what you're thinking 
I don't even know what you're drinking 
But it keeps this heaven alive

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide 
My beat's so in time, can you look at me
I'm out of reach I'll talk if it feels right
So nervous to say, tell me can't you see
And if you want I'll fall out forever 
I can't say no more, baby dance with me
And please don't say leave till later 
I've had my last chance on the stairway 

Last chance on the stairway 
Last chance on the stairway 
Last chance on the stairway 
Last chance on the stairway 
Last chance on the stairway 
Last chance on the stairway
