It was only yesterday that I was down
And the world was looking cold and lonely
Had face so long it almost touch the ground
A tear was in my eye I just wanted to cry
But you came and said to me:
Don't look so sad
A smile can make a whole lot happen
And I realized I needed you so bad
It was only yesterday, but I knew right away

Got me breathin' feelin'
High up in the air
Each time i hear you say you care
I'm sighing, flying
high as a kite
'Cause you brought somethin' special to my life

It's a crazy thing you really can't describe
A moment that will last forever
'Cause I saw that look of love inside your eyes
My heart just started bumping like the fourth of July
I know I won't ever be the same again
'Cause angel's sitting on my shoulder
It's a magic feelin' once you found a friend
'Cause I know one thing for certain, babe
This love will never end

Got me breathin' feelin'
High up in the air
Each time I hear you say you care
I'm sighing, flying
high as a kite
'Cause you brought somethin' special to my life

Don't need no money don't need no fame
'Cause love's fallin' all around like summer rain
I'd climb a mountain, cross any sea
As long as I know your sugar's waitin' for me
Want your love, want your love

Got me breathin' feelin'
High up in the air
Each time I hear you say you care
I'm sighing, flying
high as a kite
'Cause you brought somethin' special to my life

Got me breathin' feelin'
High up in the air
Each time I hear you say you care
I'm sighing, flying
high as a kite
'Cause you brought somethin' special to my life
