It started with a touch, a feel, a glimpse.

The way your name feels, so soft on my lips.

The sound of you, it drives me crazy.

They mention your name, I love you, baby.

You bring back feelings, long pushed away.

Pushed, shoved, and denied, afraid of heartbreak.

I give up on caring what the voices say,

Your love is worth the price I may pay.

So many years, I've waited for you.

So long I didn't know, you were waiting, too.
