Why do I keep my mind
On you all the time?
And I don't even know you (I don't know you)

Why do I feel this way?
Thinking about you every day
And I don't even know you (I don't know you)

Take me in your arms
Thrill me with all of your charms

And I'll take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving you more till the day I die
Take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving you more

If you have anything to do
Call me and I will do it for you
And I don't even know you (I don't know you)

If I only had one wish to give
That wish would be for you to live
Forever, every day (I don't know you)

When I see you on the street
My heart skips a beat

And I'll take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving you more till the day I die
Take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving you more

I'm gonna try to do
All the things you want me to do
If you just give me a chance (I don't know you)

I try to make something
Out of nothing
And I don't even know you (I don't know you)

Take me in your arms
Fill me with all of your charms

And I'll take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving you more till the day I die
Take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving you more

Take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving you more till the day I die
Take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving, loving you

Take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving you more till the day I die
Take to the sky, oh, the natural high
Loving, loving you
