I’ve never felt like this before,
and I’m not looking for the door
like I’ve been known to do,
since I’ve been here with you.

Before, I’d never thought such things
like baby names and diamond rings,
’cause, babe, it just ain’t me;
I swear this isn’t me.

I’m not used to how I’m feeling,
and these crazy thoughts are reeling through my head.
I don’t know.
I’m not used to this attention,
and I feel that I should mention that I’m scared,
’cause I don’t know.
I don’t know.

I’ve never seen a smile like this,
never savored so sweet a kiss,
since your eyes turned my way;
I am grateful everyday.

But I’ve never thought these thoughts before.
I’ve never felt such pains before,
within my hopeful heart,
are we just playing out a part?


I’ve given in to what I’m feeling,
as I hear you softly breathing by my side.
I love you.
My heart is filled with sweet emotion,
as I watch the swirls of oceans in your eyes.
Yes, I love you.
I love you.
