The Moment of a Lifetime

It was a hot summer wedding when you saw me across the room
You were the cousin of the bride; my family was friends with the groom
I looked up from my drink; I was tired from the heat of the day
But the sight of you in that dress took my breath away

You had your knowing smile
And your eyes were locked on me
And my heart was remembering this
Saying it could be

Oh, the moment of a lifetime now
And I couldn’t tell you but I knew somehow
Yeah there’s something about the way your blue eyes shined
It made the world transform in mine
In a moment of a lifetime now

We made some brief conversation and your wit was quicker than mine
Yeah, I’ve never been good at flirting but you made it easy that night
The sun was setting behind as I made my way closer to you
And with that look in you eye, I knew I’d never forget this view

The sky is set aflame
A breeze is blowing through your hair
And when we’re leaning in
I can feel it in the air

It’s the moment of a lifetime now
And I couldn’t tell you but I knew somehow
Yeah there’s something about the sunlight on your skin
It told me something was going to begin
In a moment of a lifetime now

And I know myself; I always fall to fast
Yeah the ghosts of early heartbreak haunt my past
But sometimes you just know it in your heart
So why the hell would you wait to let it start?

Your hand is holding mine
Fifty years from that first night
And when I see you smile
Oh, I know that I got it right
I got it right

It was the moment of a lifetime then
And I could’ve said I knew it way back when
There was something the way you looked at me
It was everything I’d ever need
In a moment of a lifetime then
