  • The way you move is like a full on rainstorm
    And I'm a house of cards
    You're the kind of reckless that should send me running
    But I kinda know that I won't get far

    And you stood there in front of me just
    Close enough to touch
    Close enough to hope you couldn't see
    What I was thinking of

    Drop everything now
    Meet me in the pouring rain
    Kiss me on the sidewalk
    Take away the pain
    'Cause I see, sparks fly, whenever you smile

    Get me with those green eyes, baby
    As the lights go down
    Gimme something that'll haunt me whenever you're not around
    'Cause I see, sparks fly, when you smile

    My mind forgets to remind me, your a bad idea
    You touch me once and it's really something
    You find I'm even better than you, imagined I would be
    I'm on my guard for the rest of the world
    But with you I know its no good
    And I could wait patiently
    But I really wish you would

    Drop everything now
    Meet me in the pouring rain
    Kiss me on the sidewalk
    Take away the pain
    'Cause I see, sparks fly, whenever you smile

    Get me with those green eyes, baby
    As the lights go down
    Gimme something that'll haunt me when you're not around
    'Cause I see, sparks fly, whenever you smile

    I run my fingers through your hair
    And watch the lights go wild
    Just keep on keeping your eyes on me
    Its just wrong enough to make it feel right
    And lead me up the staircase
    Won't you whisper soft and slow
    And I'm captivated by you baby
    Like a fireworks show

    Drop everything now
    Meet me in the pouring rain
    Kiss me on the sidewalk
    Take away the pain
    'Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile

    Get me with those green eyes, baby
    As the lights go down
    Gimme something that'll haunt me when you're not around
    'Cause I see, sparks fly, whenever you smile

    When sparks fly oh baby smile

  • Jamison from Newport Beach, Calove this song
  • Fabio from New Orleans, LaI had just gotten the CD like a week before, and I was listening to it in my car. I pulled into the parking lot and sat for a few moments. The chorus came on, and I realized that it was pouring, with the sidewalk in front of me. Indeed, I've fallen for a superstar, but I can't help it. I know she knows how I feel. I don't know if there's an actual connection or chemistry, but it's worth a shot. I've learned to believe in fairytales again.
