Strange Attraction Submit Correct Lyrics

It started with a dedication
'Lost in admiration, happy birthday, I'm forever yours, blossom'
Faded red inside a tiny book of butterflies
I smiled, surprised at how when flickered through
The wings flew by spelled out my name

Six months went by, the summer lost
Obsessively, the letters dropped into my life
The same soft blood smooth flowing hand
'Please try to understand, I have to see you, have to feel you
Tell you all the ways I need you, yours forever in love'

Strange attraction spreads it's wings
It varies but the smallest things
You never know how anything will change
Strange attraction spreads it's wings
And alters but the smallest things
You never know how anything will fade

The year grew old incessantly
She wrote to me, she'd started smoking poetry
I laughed in recognition of a favorite phrase
She'd pulled me in, I answered her, a Christmas card in sepia
Arranging when and where and how the two of us should meet

Her opening so well prepared
A nervous smile, I couldn't take my eyes from her
She whispered, "Can I use some of your lipstick?"
It was perfect, so believable, I couldn't help but feel that it was real
And kissing crimson fell into her waiting arms

Strange attraction spreads it's wings
It varies but the smallest things
You never know how anything will change
Strange attraction spreads it's wings
And alters but the smallest things
You never know how anything will fade

So alone into the cold new year, without another word from her
I wrote to ask if we could maybe meet again before the spring
Weeks went by with no reply until once more my birthday came
With it my surprise, but this time nothing was the same

'I'm sorry, blame infatuation, blame imagination
I was sure you'd be the one but I was wrong
It seems reality destroys our dreams, I won't forget you, Blossom
Faded red inside a tiny book of old goodbyes

Strange attraction spreads it's wings
Varies but the smallest things
You never know how anything will change
Strange attraction spreads it's wings
Alters but the smallest things and you never know
And you never know, and you never know
