Everything about me seems to have changed
Step by step, I got a brand new walk
I even sound sweeter when I talk

My heart feels heavy, my feet feel light
I shake all over, but I feel alright
I never felt like this before
Something’s got a hold on me that won’t let go
I never thought it could happen to me
Got me heavy without the misery
I never thought it could be this way
Love’s sure gonna put a hurting on me

Hey hey, yeah, it must be love

You know he walks like love
(You know he walks like love)
You know he talks like love
(You know he talks like love)
Makes me feel alright
(Makes me feel alright)
In the middle of the night
(In the middle of the night)
La, la, la, la (La, la, la, la)
La, la, la, la (La, la, la, la)
