I never had anything happen so fast
I took one look and I shattered like glass
I guess I let it show 'cause your smile told me you knew
That you're everything I ever wanted at once
There's no holding this heart when it knows what it wants
And I never wanted anything more than to know you

I was swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way to make you feel the way that I do
I was swept away
Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away


And so it begins
This journey of love
The summer wind carries us to places all our own
The words of a look
The language of touch
The way that you want me means so much
And I never wanted anything more than to love you


Seeing my tomorrows in your eyes
I was swept away


I hope I wake up soon
I'm a victim of that crazy moon


The very first time you said my name
I knew it would never sound the same
Something about me is changed forever

    A fulfilling music to my unspoken words. I may have not said the diction and the meaning of my words, but these words definitely defined my thoughts for him. The one who made me smile and the only person who brought me to the best date ever. The date that only touched my heart so dearly.

    Coldfire
