Love comes unbidden
Can't be forbidden
It takes you and shakes you
Right down to your shoes

It knows heartache and trial
But accepts no denial
You can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

In the wink of an eye
Love loses an arrow
We control it no more
Than the flight of the sparrow

The swell of the tide
Or the light of the moon
You can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

Tell me now if I'm wrong
Are you feelin' the same?
Are your feet on the ground?
Are you callin' my name?

Do you lie awake nights?
Please say you do
'Cause you can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

Love cuts like a torch
To a heart behind steel
And though you may hide it
Love knows how you feel

And though you may trespass
On the laws of the land
Your heart has to follow
When love takes your hand

And it seems we're two people
Within the same circle
It's drawn tighter and tighter
Till you're all that I see

I'm full and I'm empty
And you're pourin' through me
Like a warm rain fallin'
Through the leaves on a tree

Tell me now if I'm wrong
Are you feelin' the same?
Are your feet on the ground?
Are you callin' my name?

Do you lie awake nights?
Please say you do
'Cause you can't choose who you love
Love chooses you

No, you can't choose who you love
Love chooses you
