  • Are those your eyes?
    Is that your smile?
    Well, I've been looking at you forever
    But I never saw you before
    Are these your hands holding mine?
    Now I wonder how I could have been so blind

    And for the first time
    I am looking in your eyes
    For the first time I'm seein' who you are
    I can't believe how much I see
    When you're looking back at me
    Now I understand what love is, love is
    For the first time

    Can this be real?
    Can this be true?
    Am I the person I was this morning
    And are you the same you?
    It's all so strange, how can it be?
    All along this love was right in front of me

    And for the first time
    I am looking in your eyes
    For the first time I'm seein' who you are
    I can't believe how much I see
    When you're looking back at me
    Now I understand what love is, love is
    For the first time

    Such a long time ago
    I had given up on finding this emotion ever again
    But you live with me now
    Yes, I found you somehow
    And I've never been so sure

    And for the first time
    I am looking in your eyes
    For the first time I'm seein' who you are
    I can't believe how much I see
    When you're looking back at me
    Now I understand what love is, love is
