"It Was" as written by Gary Scott Burr and Mark Wright....
I guess we guess are way through life
How many times do we really know for sure?
I was just hoping for the best
Then I woke up in these lovin' arms of yours
What I felt was unmistakable
When I fell for you

It was real, it was magic
It was calm, it was savage
It was cool as a breeze
It was warm to the touch
It was never enough
It was always too much
It did all the things love does
That's how I knew
It was

Who thought that I could laugh so loud
Then turn around and cry so many tears
I used to have so many doubts
But one by one you made them disappear
What I found was unbelievable
But I believe it's true

It was real, it was magic
It was calm, it was savage
It was cool as a breeze
It was warm to the touch
It was never enough
It was always too much
It did all the things love does
That's how I knew
It was

You asked what I felt when you walked through the door
Was it fear?
Was it clear?
It was all that and more

It was real, it was magic
It was calm, it was savage
It was cool as a breeze
It was warm to the touch
It was never enough
It was always too much
It did all the things love does
That's how I knew
It was

That's how I knew
It was

    General CommentShe's basically saying that she fell for this guy, even though they're not in a committed relationship, she knows what she feels for him is love.

    Song MeaningThis song still haunts me. It's so beautifully truthful. The consequences of falling for someone. The good and the bad. The loss and gain.

    That moment when you realize that out of any past lovers or relationships, you really loved that person. The pain and scars that love can leave on our souls. The way it feels so good when you have it and the loss you feel when it's gone. Taking it for granted like so many people do these days. How happy that person made you and how sad you feel when their love is gone...

    General CommentSince Chely came out as a lesbian,I think this songs means much more.It's about the struggle she had been through as a homosexual person, when in a relationship with another woman,she is confused with her feelings towards her,She wants to convince herself that it is not love,it is just friendship,I am not a dyke,I am a normal person,but in the end she just knew she can't cheat on her heart,it is love,it is what love feels like.that's why she says:"It did all the things love does".All these feeling I totally understand as a lesbian myself,thus this song means a lot to me and to thoses who have the courage to fight social norms and be true to themselves.
