“Theme for a New Love”

I saw you only once, and I knew
There could be no one for me but you
Yours was the face I wanted to see
Wanted to touch so tenderly
You smiled and took me by surprise
And you captured my heart with your eyes

The way you walk, the tilt of your head
The sound of your voice and the things you’ve said
For you’ve so many secrets, so much mystery to everyone else
But you share them with me
You’re so much like a kitten that I hold in my arm
When we laugh and you tease, I’m taken by your charms

You’re lovely and charming and loving and sweet
You captivate everyone you meet
Your laughter’s like music, you’re always such fun
You’re all of my dreams rolled into one

Then there are times when you’re moody, times when you’re blue
When the deepest dark black of night is you
Yet, all of these moods, love, help you to see and understand what’s inside of me

You’re so soft to my touch
And our love is so new
How can I tell you how much I love you?
You’re the raindrops that fall and refresh everything
For when I am with you, it is eternally spring
I love you
I love you
I love you
