Since the moment I spotted you
Like walkin around with little wings on my shoes
My stomach's filled with the butterflies
And it's alright
Bouncin round from cloud to cloud
Got the feeling like I'm never gonna come down
If I said I didn't like it then you know I'd lie

Every time I try to talk to you
I get tongue tied
It turns out that everything I say to you comes out wrong
and never comes out right
So I'm thinking why don't you and I get together
and take on the world and together forever
dance we will and tales we'll try again
So I say why don't you and I hold each other
Fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
Cause without you they're never gonna let me in

When's this fever gonna break
I think I've handled more than any man can take
I'm like a love sick puppy chasing you around
and it's alright
Bouncing round from cloud to cloud
I got the feeling like I'm never gonna come down
If I said I didn't like it then you know I'd lie

(Repeat Chorus)

Slowly I begin to breathe at last
this is never gonna end
Right about the same time you walked by
and I say oh here we go again

(Repeat Chorus x2)

    General CommentMy post really has nothing to do with the meaning of the song. (not that any of yours did either with the exception of Twevorz_Mawina , but that's neither here nor there) I just wanted to say that I sincerly hope *lItHiUm* doesn't think he/she/it is a huge hardass by butchering the english language with such a ridiculous excuse for typing. On that note, I wish you all a splendid day!

    General CommentThis isn't Chad Kroeger. It's Santana with some guy named Alex Band. Sorry to burst your bubbles.

    General CommentI'm with neotemplar. It is Alex Band with Santana. Alex is the lead singer of the Calling. There was one version with nickleback's lead singer singing though, but it is still Santana. Either way, this song is the reason I got back together with my xbf. It makes me soo happy inside, like a little girl again with a crush and innocence. It makes you want to be in love, or at least to have a seriously huge crush. Idk...i think music has too much effect on my life. heehee. o well, i love it anyway

    General CommentI think its a really good song. Chad and Santana do a really good job together. I dont think the song has any special effect on my life or anything, but im glad it has effect on yours. Also i dont care what anyone says, the song sounds better with chad than alex.
