As I gaze into your eyes,
they reflect a look of surprise.
They look so familiar...
these eyes I have seen,
but only when I sleep.

For all of my life,
where have you been?
I've been seeing you again and again.
The seeing is pain,
just out of my grasp is where you remain.
Where have you been?
I've been needing a friend,
you're so wonderful.
Its so difficult for me to comprehend.

I'm afraid to open up to you,
will you reject me?
The thought of rejection is so frightening...
but your eyes, your eyes! They radiate light!
Where have you been all my life?

I've known you but a day,
yet my breath you take away,
as you continue to amaze,
and my heart you set ablaze.

This feeling is so real,
I never want it to end.
I need you in my life,
I just want to be your friend.

Love at first sight was always such a joke.
Now when I talk to you its hard not to choke.
While my knees become weak,
and my words I cannot speak,
my legs begin to tremble,
this feeling I remember...

Where have you been all my life?
Your eyes bring a tear to mine.
You've been here all along.
You've just been hiding for so long.
Its not surprising to me:
I've found the girl of my dreams.
