[Verse 1]
$20 cabernet, was the same kind we always drink
Never knew it to go to my head like it did
When you were pouring more than you usually do
How’d you know that I’d need an excuse
To say the words I never thought I’d use til I did
Oh what are the chances that your heart was thinking
What my heart was thinking when we got to drinking

[Chorus]
We caught lightning in a bottle last night
You could feel the heat coming off the vine
Fallin’ for the first time yeah just can’t happen twice
We caught lightning in a bottle last night
I’d have to say the odds are in our favor, a little too early or a little bit later
And we might’ve missed the moment and the magic that came with it
I have a hard time believing that it was so easy
But you made it easy

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge]
Oh what are the chances that your heart was thinking
What my heart was thinking when

[Repeat Chorus]

[Outro]
We caught lightning in a bottle last night
