about

The relationship begins. With excitement and butterflies, this bouncy track captures all the happiness of new love, of starting fresh, of settling in for the ride ahead...

lyrics

You came in gentle as the breeze, I barely knew you captured me
You worked your magic slow, worked your magic slow
Cuz first the water’s at my feet, and next you know I’ve gone knee deep
I crashed into your waves, oh I took that leap of faith

Cuz you can’t know the sunshine ‘til you’ve seen it with your eyes
And no, you can’t know how good it tastes until you take a bite
That’s how I knew that it was you
It was you

I was just a seed on floatin’ air, just flyin’ ‘round from here to there
Just lookin’ for a home, just lookin’ for a home
But now that seed is planted down, I’m puttin’ roots into the ground
I made that risky move, oh I did it all for you

Cuz you can’t know the sunshine ‘til you’ve seen it with your eyes
And no, you can’t know how good it tastes until you take a bite
That’s how I knew that it was you
It was you

Late in the night is when I find myself
And later in life is when I found myself
With you, ooh ooh ooh

It’s finally startin’ to sink in, my new life’s about to begin
With you, oh with you

Cuz you can’t know the sunshine ‘til you’ve seen it with your eyes
And no, you can’t know how good it tastes until you take a bite
That’s how I knew that it was you

And now I know that it was you
So glad I found you
It was you
