    never wanted to be bothered
    never holla'd
    for more than one reason
    relationships never lasted longer than a season
    didnt care who i talked to
    didnt mind if we only swung an episode a time or two
    never stressed their where abouts
    i didnt care if they wanted to just chill or hang out
    never wanted to compromise
    didnt care if i brought tears to eyes
    i lived on the edge, i pledged many lies
    cuz nothing was worth a sacrifice

    but when you meet someone and suddenly the earth stops spinning
    And the air turns thick and your lost for words
    You lose your vision on life and what you think its worth
    You wanna chase the rainbow just to find the pot of gold
    And all you see is the future and neglect the old
    And thats when you realize...
    Things change when you're in love...

    Never dreamed or fantasized about someone
    My emotion lasted until we were done
    Never talked on the phone all night
    Didnt call to check in and say I was doing all right
    Didnt care if they were sick or how I could help
    Never expressed or told a soul how I really felt
    Always out and about, minding my business
    Never gave anyone a chance, I just kept my distance
    I caused so many problems
    Never stayed to solve them

    But when you meet someone and heaven opens up
    And an angel is before you, it takes you by surprise
    Makes you wanna fly to moon and take down every star
    Just to place them in their palm, just to see them sparkle in their eyes
    You are content with every fault and every mistake
    Thats when you realize...
    Things change when you're in love

    Never tried to be something I'm not to make an impression
    Never gave my all, never did I invest in
    a relationship, because I thought it was a waste of time
    Didn't wanna know what was the purpose of love's design
    Didnt need to hear an explanation, becuz I had many to give
    I would tell them to live their life the way they thought it should be lived
    Bragged about the bunches of people I had on my team
    Only after one thing
    To bust right and cream

    But when you meet someone and the sun begins to shine
    You begin to find
    that you're capable of climbing the highest mountain and swimming the deepest sea
    that the greatest luxeries come in huge packages and are gaurunteed free
    Not even ice can cool the flame that burns inside your soul
    thats when you realize...
    Things change when you're in love

    Things that you cannot control...

    This is my favorite line (though hard to choose):

    Makes you wanna fly to the moon and take down every star



    Girl, this is a thing of tight beauty. :) Deep, too.

    Things do change. Very good insightful flow here.

    Just minding your own. Wham it takes you. I'm told. I tried to stay out of the fray. But love floats deep. When it touches your feet. It takes your heart away. You will do the things you never did. It converts the unbelievers to know. That no matter who you are, no matter where you stand. Love catches all. Ain't it GOOD.
