Lyrics

Why do people fall in love
Where does the feeling first begin
That found a way to my heart
And make the music start
The second she walked in

Where do we get this sensation
Who designed the combination
Desire her when she’s near
The everlasting fear
That one day she would say goodbye
That’s got to make you wonder

Why do people fall in love
When do they lose their self control
Is there some power in her touch
That sends a crazy rush
Running through my soul

What do you call this condition
When it hurts so good inside
I really want to know
Can someone tell me why

Why do people fall in love
What little bell goes off inside
Can’t we find better things to do
Something safe and new
That I haven’t tried

But here am I, needing someone
And I’ll need you til I die
People fall in love, ah
When they fall in love …
