when I was alone,
when I saw everyone gone.
when I thought I can't live anymore,
I met a beautiful angel,
like I have never seen before...
Her one smile made it happen,
a dead heart started beating,
and a body so cold
now started heating.
Her one word said it all,
she is the one
for whom I am gonna fall.
And this is the fall that doesn't hurt,
instead it makes you feel special,
like a cherry on top of dessert.
The way she poured her love,
she must be a dove.
or maybe she is the angel,
who has come from heavens above.
Before I met her,
my life was nothing but blur.
And since I've seen face,
I've never felt so happy and amazed.
I wish I could live with you forever,
and for that love and affection and care,
I will leave you never.
I said what I felt with all my heart,
I hope you feel the same way,
cuz honestly from your love
now I can not live apart...
