I wanna fall into you
And I wanna be everything you want me to
But I'm not sure I know how
I lose faith and I lose ground.

When I see you I remember, oh
Unconditional love
(love, love, love).

It doesn't matter what I say
'cause it always seems you're taking me the wrong way
But if you could read my mind
You'd see, I fight myself all the time.

When I see you I surrender, oh
Unconditional love
(love) love (love) oh-woe (love)
(love) love (love) oh-oh (love).

Standing on a wilder shore
I got my head up in the clouds
Oh, I ain't got no sense of direction now.

I wanna lie next to you
And I wanna do everything you want me to
But I'm not sure I know how
Put your arms around me now.

When I feel you I surrender, oh
Unconditional love
(love, love, love)
Oh (love, love, love).

Put your arms around me now
'cause when I feel you I surrender
Unconditional love
(love) unconditioned love, hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo (love).

When I see you I remember
Unconditional love
(love) all you need is (love) what the world needs (love)
Now the word is love (love) love (love) hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo (love).

Ahaa, ahhaaa, haa.
