You've got the cool water
When the fever runs high
You've got the look of love light
In your eyes
And I was in crazy motion
'Til you calmed me down
It took a little time
But you calmed me down

[Chorus]
When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
But the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right

They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
I've got a wall around me
You can't even see
It took a little time
To get to me

[Chorus]

Some people never say the words
I love you
It's not their style
To be so bold
Some people never say those words
I love you
But like a child they're longing
To be told

[Chorus]
