I have a feeling, it's a feeling, I'm concealing, I don't know why It's just a mental, sentimental alibi
But I adore you So strong for you Why go on stalling I am falling Our love is calling Why be shy?
Let's fall in love Why shouldn't we fall in love? Our hearts are made of it Let's take a chance Why be afraid of it
Let's close our eyes and make our own paradise Little we know of it, still we can try To make a go of it
We might have an end for each other To be or not be Let our hearts discover
Let's fall in love Why shouldn't we fall in love Now is the time for it, while we are young Let's fall in love
We might have and end for each other To be or not be Let our hearts discover
Let's fall in love Why shouldn't we fall in love? Now is the time for it, while we are young Let's fall in love (4x)
