What magic is this?
Sweetheart, what potent apothecary did you spill on me?
I feel as if I have held hands with the stars above
I have walked on water
Yes, I have experienced the unimaginable
What ecstasy is this darling?
I need to, want to, have to hold on to this for eternity
I am floating
And I think you are too
No not love
For that is just a word, one word
Anyone can fall in love
This I feel with my whole body, mind and soul
Oh, my sweet?
Please tell me you feel it too?
For it is too tragic if you do not
Let us share this drug, this discovery
Dwell in its paradise
Our sweet secret
Just you and I
May this magic last forever
For I don’t ever want to be sober from you
