	She paused, then took his hand and said, "Damn you, DJ Croft.
I didn't want to love you, but I do."
DJ looked at her in silence for several seconds, stunned by
all that she'd revealed. When he finally did speak, what came out of
his mouth was so unutterably lame he briefly wished for a thunderbolt
to strike him down for coming up with nothing better:
"I... I'm sorry about the sonnet."
Asuka stared at him for a moment, and he waited, inwardly
cringing, for her to explode.
Explode she did, but not the way he expected; it started with
a tiny, involuntary turn-up of one corner of her mouth, progressed
through a muted snort to silent shivering, and then swelled into a
full-on, clean burst of laughter as she sat up and pulled him hard
into a hug.
"We're like an old song," she observed between winding-down
chuckles.
"'That's All'?" DJ replied.
"You know it?"
"One of my favorites," he replied.

Just as I thought it was going all right
I found out I'm wrong when I thought I was right
It's always the same, it's just a shame
That's all
I could say day and you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
Always the same, it's just a shame
And that's all

I could leave but I won't go
Though my heart might tell me so
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you with you looking at me
It's always the same, it's just a shame
That's all
Turning me on, turning me off
Making me feel like I want too much
Living with you's just putting me through it
All of the time
Running around, staying out all night
Taking it all instead of taking one bite
Living with you's just putting me through it
All of the time

I could leave but I won't go
Well it'd be easier, I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
It's always the same, it's just a shame
That's all

Truth is, I love you
More than I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together 'til the end

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier, I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
So why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
It's always the same, it's just a shame
That's all

But I love you
More than I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together 'til the end

But just as I thought it was going all right
Found out I'm wrong when I thought I was right
It's always the same, it's just a shame
That's all
Well I could say day and you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
It's always the same, it's just a shame
That's all
That's all
