I GO NUMB

ON FIRST IMPRESSION I FOUND YOU
TO GOOD TO BE TRUE
YOU TOUCHED MY CHEEK
SAID YOU'LL DO
I WAS SHAKING IN MY SHOES

CAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT THIS STRANGE ATTRACTION
WOULD GIVE ME SUCH A STRONG REACTION
I LOOK IN YOUR EYES
AND I GET PARALYZED

I GO NUMB
I CAN'T SPEAK
EVERY TIME I LOOK AT YOU
MY KNEES GO WEAK
WANNA DIE INSIDE
EVERY TIME I LOOK AT YOU

IN A WORLD OF WHITE NOISE
YOU GOTTA STAY COOL
CAN'T LOSE YOUR CONTROL
AND ALL THE GAMES I PLAYED
WELL I WAS A FOOL
NOW IT'S YOU I WANNA HOLD

CAUSE I'VE WAITED FOR THE INSPIRATION
A MAN OF SOPHISTICATION
WHEN I'M CLOSE TO YOU
I CAN'T SEEM TO MOVE

CHORUS

I ASKED THE MOON ABOVE
SO TELL ME IF WHAT I FEEL IS REAL
OR JUST AN ACCIDENT OF LOVE
CAUSE NOW I'M LIVING IN HIS WORLD
AND I REALLY THINK I'M FALLIN FOR THIS BOY
