Lyrics

Don’t ask me just how it happened
I wish I knew
I can’t believe that it’s happened
And still it’s true

I got lost in her arms and I had to stay
It was dark in her arms and I lost my way
From the dark came a voice and it seemed to say
There you go, there you go

How I felt, as I fell, I just can’t recall
But her arms held me fast and it broke the fall
And I said to my heart as it foolishly
Kept jumping all around I got lost
But look what I found
