Lyrics

I was the happiest guy
That's what everyone said
Inside I was lonely then
Still I played the part so well
No one could ever tell
Just a smiling face on an empty shell

And then look what you did when you came along
(Look what you did)
Made me see I was wrong
Often I'll think that I'm losing my mind,
But I don't really care 'cause I'm satisfied
Look what you did to me now
My resistance is all breaking down
Now it's up to you, I'm in love with you, anyhow

(When I dream of you
Oh, won't you look)

Look what you did to me now
Turned my universe upside down
Thinking not who I was anymore
I guess I was just playing a clown

I thank heaven above
For showing me what it's made of
Look what you did to me now
I'm in love
