I love this song...

I was in high school when I first heard this played on air. So tensed up for my finals in Algebra, I was reviewing till the wee hours of the early mawning. Who wouldn't? I was never able to study and normally, I was an hour late. My Algebra class took one hour and a half of my usual school sked.

To alleviate the churning knot inside me, I decided to play some soft background music. There! For the first time, I heard them sing this song. It brought soothing touch to my uptight nerves.


I guess you've heard, I guess you know
In time I'd have told you, but I guess I'm too slow
And it's overly romantic but I know that it's real
I hope you don't you mind if I say what I feel
It's like I'm in somebody else's dream,
This could not be happening to me

But you were there, and you were everything I'd never seen
You woke me up from this long and endless sleep
I was alone
I opened my eyes and you were there

Don't be alarmed, no don't be concerned
I don't want to change things
leave them just as they were
I mean nothing's really different
It's me who feel strange
I'm always lost for words when someone mentions your name
I know I'll get over this for sure
I'm not the type who dreams there could be more

But you were there, and you were everything I'd never seen
You woke me up from this long and endless sleep
I was alone
I opened my eyes and you were there

Can I take your smile home with me,
or the magic in your hair?

The rain has stopped, the storm has passed
Look at all the colors now the sun's here at last
I supposed that you'll be leaving but I want you to know
Part of you stays with me even after you go
Like an actor playing someone else's scene
This could not be happening to me

But you were there, and you were everything I'd never seen
You woke me up from this long and empty sleep
I was alone
I opened my eyes and no, I'm not alone, I'm not alone
I opened my eyes and you were there
