The World Stood Still
Suspended In Time, Part 5

This was just to be another night out dancing
There was no special feeling in the air
No premonition of coming destiny
I'd been at the club for an hour or so
Danced with a dozen or more soldiers
I was sitting at a table, taking a breather
And suddenly my eyes were drawn to the door
As if by a magnet
And when I turned to look
My eyes locked with his
And the world stood still
I rose, and started walking towards him
And he met me half way
When he took me in his arms, I never wanted to leave
So I didn't
We danced, the two of us, until closing time
And agreed to meet again the following night
And so it was every night from then on
