Whoa, here it comes
That funny feelin' again windin'
Me up inside
Every time we touch
Hey, I don't know
Oh, tell me where to begin
Cause I never ever
Felt so much. Hey!

And I can't recall any love at all
Oh baby, this blows 'em all away

It's got what it takes
So tell me why can't this be love?
Straight from the heart
Oh tell me why
Can't this be love?

I tell myself,
"Hey! Only fools rush in"
Only time will tell
If we stand the test of time
All I know
You've got to run to win and
I'll be damned if
I'll get hung up on the line. Hey!

No, I can't recall anything at all
Oh baby, this blows 'em all away

Woo! It's got what it takes
So tell me why can't this be love?
You want it straight from the heart
Oh, tell me why
Can't this be love?

Woo! It's got what it takes
So tell me why can't this be love?
Straight from the heart,
Oh tell me why
Can't this be love?

Baby, why can't this be love?
Got to know why can't this be love?
I wanna know why can't this be love?
