    I can’t take my eyes off of you
    Even when my eyes are closed
    In the dark of night my vision is
    Clearly centered on your smile;

    I can’t keep my thoughts off you
    Even when my day becomes too
    Much for one to handle I can smile
    At the thought of the love you own;

    I can’t keep my words off you
    Even when I speak of life’s lessons
    The conversation will turn in the
    Direction of your divine silouhette;

    I can’t keep my heart off of you
    Even when I thought I could never
    Love again you ventured into my
    World and unlocked loves’ chains;

    I can’t keep my ME off of you
    For when you entered my world
    You gathered the stones of pain
    And threw them into forgetfulness;

    It is you that has clouded my sight
    And covered my heart in your loves
    Embrace which leave me helpless
    To the ever constant fall in love…

    With you.

    I can't keep my eye's off you.
    sent quivers to my soul.
    I can't keep my heart off you.
    It's worth the weight of gold.
    I won't stop enjoying your flow
    And this I'm sure you know.
    What a lucky woman!
