And cupid laughs.

I am beginning to think falling in love is a chronic disorder. (I lift my glass) Here we go again.

I heard you say

The other day

While fighting back the tears

You wear your heart

Upon your sleeve

And you've been that way for years


Well I can tell

And I can see

I'de march through hell

For you to smile

To smile at me


I know your pain

Though I refrain

From showing anyone

I keep it so far

Down it never

Sees a day of sun

I wear a mask

Painted with laughs

It protects me like a gun


But then you looked

Into my eyes

That's all it took


My mask is gone

For you

My guard is down

For you



By your stare

Who cares

I've been charmed

If I die

By your hand

Then I die

A happy man


Here I come again

Wow. You really captured that essence of vulnerability that comes with being in love...or even just that first freeze-frame of infatuation. Kudos to you!
