Whenever did I love you? I count the fraction of a second
The flicker of an eye that sent out the call to beckon
Twinkling and glittering - light in a dark and dusty room
"When I saw you, I fell in love. And you smiled because you knew."
The tangled cords inside me all uncoiled and my shadow now relaxes
From the shift within your body that turned the globe upon its axis
In the universe where my chin is now directly pointed skyward
Expectations and esteem is now somewhat slightly higher
And sleeping is for rest now, not for just passing time
Excited to be awake as your warmth creeps up my side
Turning pages slowly, getting distracted by distractions
Waving you away with all of your lovely, silly actions
Like I'm riding in the car, deeply lost inside my head
Catatonic, staring blankly, missing every word you said
So, you abruptly yank the wheel so our direction goes west
Driving ever so wildly, all the while, humming in jest
And we reach the mouth of the great river Thames
I know I love you now, but my God, I loved you then
How the water sloshed, like a mesmerizing dream
However did you know that it was exactly what I need?
Whenever did I love you? ...I'll just keep it to myself.
But from the instant that I met you... I hoped that you could tell.
