If you could see
That this is the way things should be
You wouldn’t have to leave me
I see your eyes they gleam
Your moves they make me keen to lose control

And I could see, romance it was swinging from the trees
And I could see them dance, until there were bruises on their feet
And they didn’t care, if people stopped and stared
They didn’t mind, cause this type of thing happens once in a lifetime

And here we stand
Not knowing what will come next
To tell you the truth I’m scared cause
You look so beautiful
And I can’t bear the thought
Of us without this;

And I could see, romance it was swinging from the trees
And I could see them dance, until there were bruises on their feet
And they didn’t care, if people stopped and stared
They didn’t mind, cause this type of thing happens once in a lifetime

This type of thing happens once in a lifetime.

    General CommentI love this song!
    it's gorgeous

    and I think it's about being so in love with a girl that it scares you.
    But you don't want it to ever change.

    it's such a good song though.

    his voice is amazing

    General Commentit sounds like a nervous guy who met a girl who swet him off his feet and he doesn't know whats gonna happen, and he's in a situation where he's trying to convince his girl to stay with him.
