Tell me have you ever wanted
Someone so much it hurts?
Your lips keep trying to speak
But you just can't find the words
Well I had this dream once;
I held it in my hands

She was the purest beauty
But not the common kind
She had a way about her
That made you feel alive
And for a moment
You made the world stand still

Yeah we owned the night

You had me dim the lights;
You danced just like a child
The wine spilled on your dress
And all you did was smile
Yeah, it was perfect
I hold it in my mind

Yeah, we owned the night

When the summer rolls around
And the sun starts sinking down
I still remember you
Oh, I remember you
And I wonder where you are
Are you looking at those same stars again?
Do you remember when?
We woke under a blanket
All tangled up in skin
Not knowing in that moment
We'd never speak again
But it was perfect;
I never will forget
When we owned the night
Yeah, we owned the night

    Perfection is impossible, but we dream about it and want to be as close to it as possible. Here they get close in that night to perfect love

    Spending one perfect night, enjoying every minute, not letting what might happen in the future affect what's happenning tonight. Don't worry about what you can't control, cause you can't change it. You can't change true love, so don't try. :)
