This Brand-New Feeling

I barely know you,

But it seems like I've seen you before.

I've never met you,

But I can picture your handsome face.

My friends say I should be more careful,

And I agree,

But when I met you,

You swept me off my feet.

I love talking to you,

I can never wait.

My parents have no idea,

But that's the beauty of it.

Please tell me you feel this too,

This unseen connection!

I don't want to be alone,

I've been alone for thirteen years.

I'm sick of being told what to do.

I think I know what true love feels like,

I don't have to feel the water close over my head,

To get the same drowning sensation.

I hate this,

Not seeing you,

I can picture you,

In my mind's eye.

You are amazing,

You are a miracle,

But I need to know,

Do you feel this too?

I want to scream

When you say "I love you, too,"

But I don't know if it's really true.

I need to see you.

If I can look into your eyes,

And see the love there,

It won't matter what you are,

As long as you keep me close to your heart.

I don't care what you look like,

I've already proven that once.

I wasn't myself at that time,

But we're still joined in holy matrimony.

It's not in real life, true.

And I don't want to come on too strong,

But I can't sleep at night,

I can't eat during the day.

I've never felt this way before,

What have you done to me?

I love this feeling,

And I love you, too.

Please don't leave me,

I don't want to scare you,

I just want to tell you,

I love you.
