There's a strangest excitement today
If you're awake then you're welcome to hear
I've got a gift and it blew me away
From the far eastern sea straight to here
Oh God I feel like I'm in for it now
It's like the rush has gone straight to my brain
But my voice is as lonely as loud
As I whisper a joy of this pain

And suddenly
You've done it all
You won me over
In no time at all

And now I'll stop the storm if it rains
I'll light a path far from here
I'll make your fear melt away
And the world we know disappear

If you ask I will do what you say
All we have is this night to get through
With the cheeks to the smile you're only
You left me all up in arms and confused
Oh God I feel like I'm in for it now
And how this kiss would be wonderfully vain
I swear I'll melt if you touch me at all
But then I'll ask you to do it again, and again

And suddenly
You've done it all
You won me over
In no time at all

And now I'll stop the storm if it rains
I'll light a path far from here
I'll make your fear melt away
And the world we know disappear
I'll stop the storm if it rains
I'll light a path far from here
I'll make your fear melt away
And the world we know disappear

Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, yo
Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, yo
Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, yo
Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, yo

And now, I'll stop the storm if it rains
I'll light a path far from here
I'll make your fear melt away
And the world we know disappear
I'll stop the storm if it rains
I'll light a path far from here
I'll make your fear melt away
And the world we know disappear.

Make the world we know disappear.
Make the world we know disappear.

Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, yo
Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, yo
Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, yo
Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, yo
