I had a dream 
A love dream so tender,
You were with me old friend 
We cave in to sweet surrender
And I've held it in through October,
 November 
No wonder?
It's never been the same since then
I picked up my phone 
A million times to call you
But I lost my nerve 
'cause everytime I saw ya
like a lovesick kid
it was my paranoia 
You'd laugh?.but instead 
I read the thoughts inside my head
(Chorus)
It's you
It's been you all the time
Like somebody turnded on a light 
It took just a minute 
But now that I'm in it
It's you
It's been you all the time
You're changing my whole state of mind,
 Watch me shine 
It's been you all the time.
Now when you smile 
The world opens up for me
You're just my style 
And inside I do believe 
We're two of a kind
How could I be so blind 
My heart?it's sincere 
I believe I've wanted you for years and years 
(Chorus)
Now to think you've always been right here
And loneliness had been my greatest fear
 Until I saw the answers in your eyes,
Yes I did.
And, at last it's clear 
Now I see that you're the only one for me.
