Every time I see him
or even hear his name
I get a feeling in me that is so lame.
I feel it once and I get scared,
I feel it twice and stop to stare,
I feel it again and know it's there.
It's a feeling like no other
because it's a feeling of love
It's a feeling of compassion
that's got no satisfaction.
It's a feeling that I only feel for him...
because it's a feeling of love.
