LyricsEdit


Jane:
This affection I feel is hard to understand

It’s not the way I planned

My world is changing

Wherever I turn 

It’s his face I see

Looking back at me

And in my eyes I can’t disguise

The affection I feel 

Is getting the better off me




Oh for the first time it’s not a dream

Oh for the first time it seems so real 

That I want to remember 

Every moment

That I’m there beside him

When he gently takes my hand

So here I am

Feeling things I’ve never felt

And all because of him

My world is changing




Tarzan:

She’s turned my whole world upside down




Jane:

Everything that I do

I do to catch his eye

Well and I won’t deny

I stand here guilty




Tarzan:

I wonder if she feels the same


Both:

Is this affection (as) I feel




Has gotten the better of me




Both:

So for the first time

Can this be love?

Oh for the first time

I know it’s real


Jane:

And with him I feel


Both:

So completely

Uniquely like no other

As he gently holds me close




Jane:

But wait a minute

What am I saying?




Tarzan:

Ne’er thought no


Jane: 

I never thought

On a scale so grand

Tarzan:

To be feeling

Jane:

Are these emotions 

Racing through me

Tell me I must

Tell me I can


Tarzan:

I never felt these things




Both:

I’m finding who I am

Cause for the first time




Jane:

I have no doubt




Tarzan:

These things she does




Both:

But for the first time

I understand, try to understand

Yes for the first time

I realise

That all the things they strange/separate happened

Well they’re happening to me


Jane:

Every time I’m with that man




Tarzan:

Every time I’m with her




Jane:

Every time I’m with


Tarzan:

Could I be


Both:

That man
