There must be ten thousand love songs
heartfelt, and perfectly sung.
So why am I here with this microphone,
doing love song ten-thousand-one?
I've touched your lips more than one time
and let myself drown in your kiss.
So why am I here on your doorstep,
with my heart beating like this?
'Cause your eyes are as deep as the ocean
and as warm as the sun in the spring,
and your smile sweeps away all the questions and doubts
and the birds, when they see you, they sing.
