Forbidden fruit the day that we first met
Drinking under the bandstand in the park
Regret - for me that was the best day yet
Holding hands until sometime after dark

Remember you were cold and almost blue
And really not as old as I first thought
If love’s a drug then I was hooked on you
And also on the vodka that I bought

If time could swap for that moment sublime
I’d choose to spend it with you anyway
Dancing darkly until the church clocks chime
The dawning of the morning of the day

The apple that we bit right at the start
Was like an atom splitting in my heart
