Hopelessly in Love

Thoroughly you fell
Drastically as well
Never thought you would but there you go
Humming all day long
Some familiar song
Don’t you know you’re
Hopelessly in love
I’ve been there before
Couple times or more
Frenzied, though your brain says take it slow
Things are going just the way they should
Much too much too good
Man, you know you’re
Hopelessly in love
Take a guy whose surface
Never could be scratched
See the icy surface get outmatched
She was so determined
You were disinclined
Whatever she did, she did
And now you’ve lost your mind
Humming all day long
That familiar song
Little tune to “roon” your status quo
Ain’t the slightest doubt
Brother, you’re found out
Clear as any quasar up above
Radiating
Hopelessly in love
Might as well confess it
Might as well rejoice
Any way you dress it
There’s no choice
For the lucky loser
I’ve some sage advice
Whatever is done is done, and son,
Let’s don’t think twice
Always thought you would
Much too much too good
Better just sit back, enjoy the show
As I mentioned
I’ve been there before
Guess I know the score
Aren’t you feeling
One day like a helpless baby
Next day—like a helpless baby
Could you, to your deep dismay, be
Hopelessly in love
