(diane warren)

(recorded by eric carmen)
Arista as1-2264 / 1992

I tell myself
This can't be love
That I'm feelin'
But if I think that my world
Will be the way that it was
I'm dreamin'

Why do I feel so high
At the mention of your name
Why do I act so shy
Can't explain, can't explain, can't explain
But darlin'

Wo-wo-wo when you go walkin' by
My heart stops
My heart stops
I can't explain it
Wo-wo-wo when you look in my eye
My heart stops
My heart stops
Every time you're near

Just thinkin' about you
Darlin' it just does
Something to me
And when we meet on the street
I feel the flame of love
Burnin' through me

I try to play it cool
And never show a sign
But I give myself away
Every time, every time, every time
'cause darlin'

Wo-wo-wo when you go walkin' by
My heart stops
My heart stops
I can't explain it
Wo-wo-wo when you look in my eye
My heart stops
My heart stops
Every time you're near

My heart stops, my heart stops
My heart stops, my heart stops

Oh, whenever you're close to me
There's a wave of love rushin' over me
And I never felt this way
Can't explain, can't explain, can't explain
But darlin'
My darlin'

Wo-wo-wo when you go walkin' by
My heart stops
My heart stops
I can't explain it
Wo-wo-wo when you look in my eye
My heart stops
My heart stops
Every time you're near
