(Steve Dorff / Molly Ann Leikin)

It's like looking in the window of a fine boutique
Knowing there is nothing that I could ever buy
Still I want your love so much that I could die
But I just can't lead a double life
Being one man's lover, one man's wife

But you can start a fire raging
Just by touching me
Even though I know we're not supposed to touch, no
Oh, I never wanted anyone so much
How I wish that I had found you first
Don't you see my heart's about to burst?

Let me love you once before you go
Your eyes keep saying yes to me
So don't keep saying no
Let me love you once and you will see
No-one's ever gonna love you more than me

Let me lock the door
Open up all my love to you
All the love I've longed to give you since we met
It's the only chance I'm ever gonna get
And I just can't let it disappear
Sweet baby, please come over here

Let me love you once before you go
Your eyes keep saying yes to me
So don't keep saying no
Let me love you once and you will see
No-one's ever gonna love you more than me

Ahh
(Let me love you once before you go)
Your eyes keep saying yes to me
So don't keep saying no, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
(Let me love you once and you will see)
No-one's ever gonna love you more than me
Ahh, ahh, ahh
(Let me love you once before you go)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
(Let me love you once, ahh, ahh)
(Ever gonna love)
