It's her hair and her eyes today
That just simply take me away
And the feeling that I'm falling further in love
Makes me shiver but in a good way
All the times I have sat and stared
As she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair
And she purses her lips, bats her eyes and she plays,
With me sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say

'Cause I love her with all that I am
And my voice shakes along with my hands
Cause she's all that I see and she's all that I need
And I'm out of my league once again

It's a masterful melody when she calls out my name to me
As the world spins around her she laughs,
Rolls her eyes and I feel like I'm falling
But it's no surprise

'Cause I love her with all that I am
And my voice shakes along with my hands
'Cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
But I'd rather be here than on land
Yes she's all that I see and she's all that I need
And I'm out of my league once again.

It's her hair and her eyes today
That just simply take me away
And the feeling that I'm falling further in love makes me shiver, but in a good way
All the times I have sat and stared
As she thoughtfully thumbs through her hair
As she purses her lips, bats her eyes
And she plays with me sitting there slack-jawed and nothing to say

'Cause I love her with all that I am
And my voice shakes along with my hands
'Cause it's frightening to be swimming in this strange sea
But I'd rather be here than on land
Yes she's all that I see and she's all that I need
And I'm out of my league once again

    I met this girl way back in high school. We became steadies but we drifted apart. I do not know why. 30 yrs after, i never knew she was still looking for me. We started out talking about high school and i realized that i was still in love with her... And now i don't want to lose her. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. She doesn't know that yet but when i we will see each other again, i think, am not letting her go.

    I never knew the meaning and the lyrics of this song when I was a kid. All I can do was to hum It's melody until after high school. It melts my heart all the way to the bottom. Whenever I hear this song, I think about that special someone in my life I will never be with because I think I'm out of his league once again.
