Heart, Body and Soul,

Suddenly I could fly,

I could fly like never before,

You lifted me up to the sky.

You yes you.


This fire, this tenderness,

For I do not know if you feel the same,

Perhaps soon enough I will,

Perhaps soon enough you will.

You inspire, set my world on fire.

You yes you.
