So she said what's the problem baby What's the problem I don't know Well maybe I'm in love (love) Think about it every time I think about it Can't stop thinking 'bout it

How much longer will it take to cure this Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love (love) Makes me wanna turn around and face me but I don't know nothing 'bout love

Come on, come on Turn a little faster Come on, come on The world will follow after Come on, come on Cause everybody's after love

So I said I'm a snowball running Running down into the spring that's coming all this love Melting under blue skies Belting out sunlight Shimmering love

Well baby I surrender To the strawberry ice cream Never ever end of all this love Well I didn't mean to do it But there's no escaping your love

These lines of lightning Mean we're never alone, Never alone, no, no

Come on, Come on Move a little closer Come on, Come on I want to hear you whisper Come on, Come on Settle down inside my love

Come on, come on Jump a little higher Come on, come on If you feel a little lighter Come on, come on We were once Upon a time in love

We're accidentally in love Accidentally in love [x7]


I'm In Love, I'm in Love, I'm in Love, I'm in Love, I'm in Love, I'm in Love, Accidentally [x2]

Come on, come on Spin a little tighter Come on, come on And the world's a little brighter Come on, come on Just get yourself inside her

Love ...I'm in love
