Dressed up, you got your hair done up
For the first time in a couple weeks
You choked up from a real gut punch
You got some colour back in your cheeks

You keep a picture on the wall of your family
You keep a journal to reflect
You keep a picture on the wall of your family
Your secrets close to your chest

If only for a moment tonight
You're not looking over your shoulder
If only for a moment tonight
I dipped you low and we both fell over

At karaoke we would trade in each verse
You wore my jacket and I carried your purse
For a moment tonight
Only for a moment, yeah we can feel alright

(We could, we could, we could feel alright)
(We could, we could, we could feel alright)

I freeze, my heart skips a beat
Every time I hear the phone ringing
You pick up and speak soft in the next room
I hold my breath and try to listen in

The doctor said this might run in the family
So we'll be keeping an eye
The doctor said this might run in the family
So stand by, we're standing by

If only for a moment tonight
You're not looking over your shoulder
If only for a moment tonight
I dipped you low and we both fell over

At karaoke we would trade in each verse
You wore my jacket and I carried your purse
For a moment tonight
Only for a moment, yeah we can feel alright

(We could, we could, we could feel alright)
(We could, we could, we could feel alright)
(We could, we could, we could feel alright)
(We could, we could, we could feel alright)

She fell asleep beside me in the back seat of a cab
I leaned in to kiss her forehead, she reached out to grab my hand
We got back to our apartment, set the alarm for 7 AM
'Cause we're driving back to our hometown where the walls are caving in

If only for a moment tonight
You're not looking over your shoulder
If only for a moment tonight
I dipped you low and we both fell over

At karaoke we would trade in each verse
You wore my jacket and I carried your purse
For a moment tonight
If only for a moment, yeah we can feel alright

(We could, we could, we could feel alright)
(We could, we could, we could feel alright)
(We could, we could, we could feel alright)
(We could, we could, we could feel alright)
