Charted: 7
  • When love breaks up
    When the dawn light wakes up
    A new life is born
    Somehow I have to make this final breakthrough
    Now

    I wake up
    Feel just fine
    Your face
    Fills my mind
    I get religion quick
    'Cause you're looking divine
    Honey, you're touching something; you're touching me
    I'm under your thumb, under your spell, can't you see?

    If I could only reach you
    If I could make you smile
    If I could only reach you
    That would really be a breakthrough, oh yeah

    Break through these barriers of pain
    Break through to the sunshine from the rain
    Make my feelings known towards you
    Turn my heart inside and out for you now
    Somehow I have to make this final breakthrough
    Now, oh yeah

    Your smile speaks books to me
    I break up
    With each and every one of your looks at me
    Honey, you're starting something deep inside of me
    Honey, you're sparking something this fire in me
    I'm outta control
    I want to rush headlong into this ecstasy

    If I could only reach you
    If I could make you smile
    If I could only reach you
    That would really be a breakthrough

    If I could only reach you
    If I could make you smile
    If I could only reach you
    That would really be a breakthrough
    Oh yeah
    Breakthrough, breakthrough

    If I could only reach you
    If I could make you smile
    If I could only reach you
    That would really be a breakthrough

    If I could only reach you
    If I could make you smile
    If I could only reach you
    That would really be a breakthrough
