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
