My heart beats fast; my mind is reeling
I’m overwhelmed by all I’m feeling
Two weeks ago you were a stranger
But now I fear my heart’s in danger
How can this be, this quick connection?
This link, this bond, this strong affection?
Each day we talk, the more I’ve felt
My frozen heart begin to melt
So though I fear this frenzied pace,
I long to meet you face-to-face
I long to touch this special man
Who’s caused my heart to beat again
