Nothing seemed to matter any more, Didn't care what I was headed for. Time was standing still, No one counted till There came a knocking at the door.
Love walked right in and drove the shadows away ; Love walked right in and brought my sunniest day. One magic moment, and my heart seemed to know That love said "Hello !", Though no a word was spoken.
One look and I forgot the gloom of the past ; One look and I had found my future at last. One look and I had found a world completely new, When love walked in... with you.
