Love can bite you like a jaguar
Leave you stumbling through the jungle
People ask "What is wrong?"
All you can do is mumble

Once bitten, twice shy
You recoil from hurtful wounds
You grow a thick skin of armor
Your heart safely cocooned

In such a state of mind
I was caught by surprise
Long dark hair and soulful eyes
Like quiet moons over Guatemala
Yes, I found Melida
I found Melida
From the shadows of my wishing dreams
She looked at me with such esteem

Soon I felt the weight removed
Soon I saw the clouds disperse
Soon I felt that life was good
Soon I sang a lilting verse

Is love at first sight just a myth?
And soul mates a charming fable?
Well, I believe with innocence
I've sipped magic from love's ladle

In such a state of mind
I felt that ancient surf
Lift me on air up high
To hover like a hummingbird
Yes, I found Melida
I found Melida
Now I am healed from old wounds
Now we shall dance until we swoon
