An Original

Ain’t it funny
Everywhere you turn
People walking a straight line
Don’t want to cause concern
And when they try to love baby
They talk each other into the same old lies
Some say it’s chemical
Some say it’s downright mystical baby.

I can’t tell them just why our love is true
But none of my dreams could have thought up a girl like you
Moment to moment love’s what we make it
And you make the moment brand new pretty baby
Oh, you’re an original.

In the moonlight shining in your hair
You’re an angel with your eyes so clear
And when my friends ask me
Just how I know it’s love
I say I never met a girl like you before
And I don’t ever want to let you go.

You’re the love I’ve been searching for
You’re magic baby
Never felt love like this before
Right there with every breath I take
No one could ever compare with you baby
Oh, you’re an original.

Moment to moment love’s what we make it
And you make the moment brand new pretty baby
Oh, you’re an original.
