(r.j. scott/ c. stevens)
Producer for bonnie: r.j. scott

Before we get any closer
Before we let it begin
Before our feelings take over us
I wanna tell you one thing
I'm just an ordinary girl
Who needs some love in her life
I won't pretend to me more than I am
I've had some lovers before
But now I need something more
Than just a meaningless holding of hands
I'm just an ordinary girl
Who wants to reach out and find
Someone who honestly feels like I do
Love is so a fragile thing I'd sooner never begin
Than to find out too late, it's not true

Before we get any closer
Before we tell any lies
Before we make any promises
We really ought to decide
Is this a casual event
Two ships that pass in the night
Could we find heaven out there just one time
Or are we closer than close
With deeper feelings and most
Could ever know for the whole of their lives

Before we get any closer
Before we two become us
I need to know if you'll always be
Someone to totally trust
I'm just an ordinary girl
Who needs some love in her life
I won't pretend to me more than I am
I've had some lovers before
But now I need something more
Than just a meaningless holding of hands
Is this the casual event
Two ships that pass in the night
Could we find heaven out there just one time
Or are we closer than close
With deeper feelings and most
Couldn't ever know for the whole of their lives
