It took me by surprise
However could I know
That one look into your eyes I could never let you go
Lovers, you can never tell
I was never trying to fall in love when I fell
It took me by surprise
You caught me off my guard
You knocked me off my feet
When I finally came around
My heart declared defeat
Lovers you cannot predict
I was never trying to fall in love when I slipped
I took me by surprise
First time I met you
I could hardly believe
Couldn’t forget you
But I had to let you leave
Second time I saw you
I had to ask
For knowing what my heart knew there was no turning back
Lovers be humble
I wasn’t trying to fall in love
Lovers they stumble
It took me by surprise
