Never had anything happen so fast
Took one look and I shattered like glass
Guess I let it show 'cause your smile told me you knew
That you're everything I ever wanted at once
There's no holding this heart when it knows what it wants
And I never wanted anything more than to know you

I was swept away, no one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way to make you feel the way that I do
I was swept away, without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

So it begins, this journey of love
The summer wind carries us to places all our own
Words of a look, language of touch
The way that you want me means so much
And I never wanted anything more than to love you

Can't you see that?
I was swept away, no one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way to make you feel the way that I do
I was swept away, without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away, away
Seeing my tomorrows in your eyes
I was swept away

Ooh, I hope, I wake up soon
Ooh, I'm a victim of that crazy moon
Very first time you said my name
Knew it would never sound the same
Something about me is changed forever

Can't you see that?
I'm swept away, no one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way to make you feel the way that I do
I was swept away, without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away
Away, seeing my tomorrows in your eyes
Gotta find a way to make you feel the way that I do

I was swept away, without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away
We were swept away
Dreaming of you swept away
