I Close My Eyes and Count to Ten

It isn't the way that you look
And it isn't the way that you talk
It isn't the things that you say or do
Make me want you so
 
It is nothing to do with the wine
Or the music that's flooding my mind
But never before
Have I been so sure
You're the someone I dreamed I would find
 
It's the way you make me feel
The moment I am close to you
It's a feeling so unreal
Somehow I can't believe its true
 
The pounding I feel in my heart
The hoping that we'll never part
I can't believe this is really
Happening to me
 
I close my eyes and count to ten
And when I open them, you're still here
I close my eyes and count again
I can't believe it, but you're still here
 
We were strangers a moment ago
With a few dreams, but nothing to show
The world was a place
With a frown on its face
And tomorrow was just, I don't know
 
But the way you make me feel
The moment I am close to you
Makes today seem so unreal
Somehow I can't believe its true
 
Tomorrow will you still be here?
Tomorrow will come, but I fear
That what is happening to me
Is only a dream
 
I close my eyes and count to ten
And when I open them, you're still here
I close my eyes and count again
I can't believe it, but you're still here
 
I close my eyes and count to ten
And when I open them, you're still here
