I always thought nothing could hurt me
Yet your smile kills me softly each day
It tears my heart apart completely
As my thoughts it just sweeps away

It leaves me like a puppy in the window
like the one waiting to be claimed
Hoping that you will turn and notice me
Maybe even wanting to learn my name

For the feeling that now overtakes me
Is one I have learned to know too well
It’s a passionate overwhelming emotion
Causing the breath in my chest to fail

For it’s been that way since I first saw you
How these sweeping feelings came over me
And though our lips had never spoken a word
There was born within a strong need to be

I mean a need to feel the tender warmth
That only exists in your embracing arms
Entangled in a silent soft moment of bliss
That leave the deep walls of a heart so warm

Yes I thought nothing would ever hurt me
Yet your smile kills me softly each day
It tears my longing heart apart completely
As every thought in my mind, it sweeps away.
