It's Only Love


You said goodnight with a kiss that curled my toes
How I ever got home alive God only knows
So I try to sleep but then
I can taste your lips again
And I’m lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely lonely

All night I’m wearin’ out the floor
Wond’rin what in the world did I feel so peculiar for
There’s a puff of smoke and then
There are your lips again
sayin’ only only only only only only only only

That’s right—get a grip, get wise
It’s only love
That’s right—why should you be surprised
It’s only love
That’s right—take it between the eyes
Cause it’s only love

So I bounce down the street, skippin’ like a fool
My brain’s gone crazy, how can I keep my cool
I stop and count to ten
But there are your lips again
sayin’ only only only only only only only only

That’s right—get a grip, get wise
It’s only love
That’s right—why should you be surprised
It’s only love
That’s right—take it between the eyes
Cause it’s only love

Your lips, they move
My heart’s too confused to beat
Your lips, they smile
And spin me off of my feet
Your lips, they kiss
And even strangers on the street
Know what you’re doin’ to me

That’s right—get a grip, get wise
It’s only love
That’s right—why should you be surprised
It’s only love
That’s right—take it between the eyes
Cause it’s only love—it’s only love—it’s only only only only only love
