Helplessly Hopelessly Recklessly - Lyrics by Beverley Knight


Lyrics
I can stand with the weight of the world

On my shoulders
I can fight with the toughest of the tough
I can laugh in the face
Of all my insecurities

Anytime, anywhere, anything
I'm strong enough


But when you're holding me like this
I'm carelessly lost in your touch
I'm completely defenseless

Baby, it's almost too much
I'm helplessly, hopelessly, recklessly

Falling in love


So let consequence do what it will to us
I don't care

Let the stars stand as witness to it all

Say the word and tonight I will follow you anywhere
I just can't pretend anymore
I'm too sturdy to fall


But when you're holding me like this
I'm carelessly lost in your touch
I'm completely defenseless

Baby, it's almost too much
I'm helplessly, hopelessly, recklessly

Falling in love

I am not afraid
I am not afraid

'
Cause when you're holding me like this
I'm carelessly lost in your touch
I'm completely defenseless

Baby, it's almost too much
I'm helplessly, hopelessly, recklessly

Falling...(
Helplessly, hopelessly, recklessly falling)
I'm helplessly, hopelessly, recklessly
Falling in love
