Sometimes I don’t know if you feel the same
You got me so tied up in this lover’s game

Or are you in a state of complete shock
Your kisses are as a warm as a metamorphic rock

I gasp for air, I gasp to care why you never talk
When I’m to whisper alone now a dying squawk

At times you frustrate me beyond compare 
With relaxed attitude and charming flair
What’s forbidden to be seen on this hour?
We coast through the wakes with relentless power

The peaks are high the peaks go low
At times I’m so cold I don’t even know 

And wrestling thoughts within my brain
 I wipe these blushing marks and watch the rain
His childlike heart murmurs while counting sheep 
He forgets himself and sighs tender in his sleep

While the secret wonder of romance has left its trace 
I breathe with my lips upon his face 

While touching his forehead I utter low
Helplessly in love I worship and woe
