From the recording BEFORE I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU

One of the few songs I brought from New Jersey that survived. Maybe the only one.

Lyrics

BEFORE I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU

SINCE I FOUND YOU I GET A FEELING SO WARM SO REAL I’M REBORN SOMEWHERE BETWEEN HEAVEN’S DOOR AND THE TOP OF THE WORLD
A STATE OF HEART AND MIND I NEVER KNEW
BUT THAT’S BEFORE I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU

I’D GOTTEN USED TO TAKING IT EASY IF SOMEONE HAPPENED TO PLEASE ME
OK, FINE. I’D TAKE HIM OR LEAVE HIM WITHOUT TRYIN’ OR SEEIN’ IT THROUGH
AND I NEVER DREAMED I’D THINK IN TERMS OF TWO
BUT THAT’S BEFORE I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU

BEFORE I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU I HAD NO PASSION
BEFORE I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU I HAD NO DRIVE
YOU GAVE MY BARELY EVEN BEATIN’ HEART A THRASHIN’
SINCE I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU I’VE BEEN REVIVED

I REMEMBER WELL WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, LOVE’S SPELL THAT I WAS UNDER
WOULD FADE INTO A WHISPER DISAPPEAR INTO THE BLUE
AND I NEVER THOUGHT THAT LOVE COULD BE SO TRUE
BUT THAT’S BEFORE I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU
