This Thing

This thing


This thing you’re doing to me

Is it just love or suicidal madness?

That makes me want to jump off a cliff

Screaming, “I love you! I love you! I love you!”


This desire burning in my heart

Is it emotions or fire?

With a heat so intense, so sweet


Those things you said to me

Were they just words or a spirit?

Now stuck in my head everywhere I go


This thing I feel for you

Is it just love or magic?

That makes me want to sing from the depths

Of my soul

“I love you! I love you! I love you!”
