What's it all about
This crazy love
How did, our two worlds entwine
How do I fit in
to your life
how did you get into mine
I belong to someone else we know
back when first we met
ooh, we thought for fun
one night, together might be nice,
oooh, fun turned into love
for both of us
so now we bid
forbidden lovers price

Cuz love like ours is never ever free
you pay some agony for the ecstasy
ohh, love like ours is never ever free
you got to pay some agony, for the ecstasy

Nights when your alone,
you know that I
lay with someone else beside me
but you love me still
and I love you, you know I would
no matter where I be

Yeah, but love like ours is never ever free
you got to pay some agony for the ecstasy
oh, love like ours is never ever free
you got to pay some agony for the ecstasy...

    This song means being with your long time wife or lover and spent one night with someone else, not knowing it was going to continue and grow to love. The agony is hurting your wife because you are not in love with her any longer. Ecstasy is fire of new love. This is real and it happens!

    You are settled down with someone, probably already have kids and you feel that's where you need to be. But your heart yearns for your first love or the lover you wish you could have ended up with.
