Before I Met You


Before I met you,
I felt like nothing was new.
I did...
Before you entered in my view.

From your head to your toes,
There is beauty...
Deep.

From your eyes to your nose and lips...
There is beauty you keep deep.
And I...
Want to be in your eyes.

Before I met you,
My sentiments weren't that deeply felt to keep.
And...
Before I met you,
I got plenty rest and peaceful sleep.
And before I met you,
My feelings weren't felt for anyone I met to meet.
And now...
Here you are AND within my reach.

Before I met you,
My sentiments weren't that deeply felt to keep.
And now...
Here you are AND within my reach.
And now...
Here you are AND within my reach.

Before I met you,
I got plenty rest and peaceful sleep.
And before I met you,
My feelings weren't felt for anyone I met to meet.
And now...
Here you are AND within my reach.
You've got me...
Yes and it's NOW!
And...
Within my reach.

Yes it's NOW!
And...
Within my reach.
You've got me.
Yes it's NOW!
And...
Within my reach.
You've got me.
Yes it's NOW!
And...
Within my reach.
You've got me.
Yes it's NOW!
And,
For us to keep.
