It's hard to say How this came to be Lying here with you So close to me Caught up in your arms Tangled in your sheets Lying so close I can feel you breath And I don't know how you did it But you really caught my eye No I don't know how you did it Once bitten twice shy you woke me up brought me back to life led me out into the sunlight been so long since my heart crossed my mind now I'm knocking at your door scene of the crime I'm pulling you out into the moonlight been so long since my heart crossed my mind I open up Like never before When I'm in your arms Behind closed doors I'm as free as air High as a kite Never felt so real Never felt so right And I don't know how you did it But you really healed my pain No I don't know how you did it Lit a fire in my veins you woke me up brought me back to life led me out into the sunlight been so long since my heart crossed my mind now I'm knocking at your door scene of the crime I'm pulling you out into the moonlight been so long since my heart crossed my mind Falling, falling, falling for you you woke me up brought me back to life led me out into the sunlight been so long since my heart crossed my mind now I'm knocking at your door scene of the crime I'm pulling you out into the moonlight been so long since my heart crossed my mind It's hard to say How this came to be Lying here with you So close to me

Do you remember the first time you told me you loved me In that little motel room with the walls painted green The words came tumbling out on a sigh We were both so moved we started to cry But now you're always at work though our needs we more than meet And I'm scared of how easy it would be for someone new to Sweep me off my lonely feet Carry me away to easy street don't tell me you're too busy you don't have time for this just make a long arm pull me in for a kiss I'm not asking for a fancy dinner at a candle lit table for two just kiss me like you mean it until I know for sure you do When you're not working you're golfing or gaming The list is long and I keep on hoping and praying You'll come home before the sun sets in the sky Take me by the hand look me in the eye don't tell me you're too busy you don't have time for this just make a long arm pull me in for a kiss I'm not asking for a fancy dinner at a candle lit table for two just kiss me like you mean it until I know for sure you do If our love is a thing of the future Not a thing of the past Kiss me like you mean it Kiss me 'til I believe it don't tell me you're too busy you don't have time for this just make a long arm pull me in for a kiss I'm not asking for a fancy dinner at a candle lit table for two just kiss me like you mean it until I know for sure it's true kiss me like you mean it until I know for sure you do
