Something's gotten hold of my heart 
Keeping my soul and my senses apart 
Something's gotten into my life 
Cutting its way through my dreams like a knife 
Turning me up, turning me down 
Making me smile, making me frown 

In a world that was war 
I once lived in a time 
That was peace 
With no trouble at all 
But then you came my way 
And a feeling I know 
Shook my heart 
And made me want you to stay 
All of my nights 
And all of my days 

I wanna tell you now 
Something gotta hold of my hand 
Dragging my soul to a beautiful land 
Yeah something has invaded my night 
Painting my sleep with a colour so bright 
Changing the grey, changing the blue 
Scarlet for me, scarlet for you 

I've got to know if this is the real thing 
I've got to know what's making my heart sing, oh yeah 
A smile and I am lost for a lifetime 
Each minute spent with you is the right time 
Every hour (yeah) every day (yeah) 
You touch me and my mind goes astray 
And baby yeah, and baby yeah 

Something's gotten hold of my hand 
Dragging my soul to a beautiful land yeah 
Something's gotten into my life 
Cutting its way through my dreams like a knife 
Turning me up, turning me down 
Making me smile, making me frown 

In a world that was war 
I once lived in a time 
That was peace 
With no trouble at all 

But then you, you, you 
You came my way 
And a feeling I know 
Shook my heart 
And made me want you to stay 
All of my nights 
And all of my days 

I Wanna tell you now 
Something's gotten hold of my heart 
Keeping my soul and my senses apart 
Something has invaded my night 
Painting my sleep with a colour so bright 
Changing the grey, changing the blue 
Scarlet for me, scarlet for you
