  • We're both looking for something
    We've been afraid to find
    It's easier to be broken
    It's easier to hide

    Looking at you, holding my breath
    For once in my life I'm scared to death
    I'm taking a chance letting you inside

    [Chorus]
    I'm feeling alive all over again
    As deep as the sky, under my skin
    Like being in love, she says, for the first time
    Maybe I'm wrong, I'm feeling right
    Where I belong with you tonight
    Like being in love to feel for the first time

    The world that I see inside you
    Waiting to come to life
    Waking me up to dreaming
    Reality in your eyes

    Looking at you, holding my breath
    For once in my life I'm scared to death
    I'm taking a chance letting you inside

    [Chorus]

    We're crashing
    Into the unknown
    We're lost in this
    But it feels like home

    [Chorus]

    Like being in love to feel for the first time

    Like being in love, she says, for the first time
    Like being in love to feel for the first time Writer/s: JASON WADE, JUDE COLE

  • Amy from Houston, Txi agree with lahni. i always listen to this song. it reminds me of my friend who i "use" to like and he knows i use to but he doesnt know that i still do i think he likes me too because everyday after class he waits for outside the door and we walk to class together, even when ppl make fun of us thinking that we like each other he's always there to stick up for both of us.
  • Hope from Naperville, IlThat is sad.
    I'm not so into Lifehouse, after a while the songs sound like mush in my ears, but this is an exception. I do like the song.
  • Matt from Houston, TxBut if she was going to [most likely] graduate, wouldn't they have to anyways. Say what you want but trust me, long distance relationships don't work. It is sad though:[
  • Lauren from Randolph, NjI love this song. My drum major and her boyfriend (she's a senior, he's a junior, both in marching band with me) broke up and I could tell he was really heart broken. He dedicated this song to her on Facebook after they broke up. He's still not over her, I can tell. It's so cute though.
  • Samantha from Abington, MaI absolutely love this song! Its so good. I could listen to it over and over again, and I wouldn't get sick of it. That's how good it is =]
  • Lahni from Perth, AustraliaI love this song! Lifehouse always sing really romantic songs and the melody, especially the guitar is always very emotion-stirring. This song is about the feelings of a person when they first truly fall in love and how they are scared of giving their hearts away to someone they really care for, because of the fear that they will be heart-broken for a long time.
