The Speed of Love

Stephen Terakami

I can feel it moving like a warm summer wind
Coming closer with every new day,
It's like the rush I get while on a roller coaster
Falling fast and takes me away,

I tried to learn what it's all about,
Tried to figure it out,
Sighed whenever I had some doubt,
While racing at the real speed of love.

It was lost in the ruins of my poor broken heart
Left me cold and drowning in tears;
All alone, emotions like a teeter totter,
In a world where nobody cares...

I cried when I thought that I would give up,
Cried 'cause I wasn't so tough,
Sighed when I shouted I had enough,
While crawling at the cruel speed of love.

Then your voice took away my fear
All I did was follow your lead
And the message is crystal clear,
It's you who're all that I need...

Now I see it coming even closer now,
In your smile, the look in your eyes,
I feel a rush I get while on a roller coaster,
It's a thrill I just can't disguise.

I ride on the beams of the moon above,
Ride on the wings of a dove;
Sighed when I found out what it's all about,
I'm travelling at the true speed of love.

(Repeat last two stanzas)

Sighed when I found out what it's all about,
I'm travelling at the true speed of love.
