The Beginning of a Love Story


I've never met anyone like you;
the things you say
I never expected to hear
from the lips of a man.


You're overflowing with
sweet sentiments,
lovely compliments.


I wonder if you are
too good to be true,
but I can see how pure your heart is,
how giving you are.


I'm already falling for you
even though I've only met you once.


Your Texan drawl
is oh so attractive;
I'm a sucker for an accent.


Your hazel eyes
and your gentle touch
seal the deal for me.


I want to guard my heart,
but you're breaking down my walls.


I know you won't rush me,
and I hope I can stop myself
from wanting to move fast.


But this thing we have going
is the kind of thing
I've always dreamt about.


For the first time in my life
I have hope that I will
know true love
and it's all thanks to you.
