  • Everybody needs an anchor
    A little something that makes you stay
    An incentive
    Someone to fight for
    Cause no one really needs so much space
    A couple years ago I was lonely
    I used to think that there was no God
    But then you looked at me with your blue eyes
    And my agnosticism turned into dust
    How well you know me
    That I don't care if the rest don't
    It doesn't matter to me, no
    As long as you love me
    As long as we still have each other

    I knew we had something
    From the moment I met you
    And I knew we had something
    No one thought it could be true
    Hey do you believe
    Do you believe in destiny?
    'Cause I do as I did then
    When you were only 23

    God knows that I'm a good dancer
    My feet can move to the music he plays
    But there were times I asked for an answer
    When he was acting in mysterious ways

    There were nights that I stayed up crying
    'Cause I was certain that things wouldn't change
    But then you came and I saw you smiling
    Just like an angel, so beautifully strange

    And then you touched me
    It's like you were made for me, oh
    Like it was all meant to be, oh
    And I was sure that you would love me
    And that we'd always have each other

    I knew we had something
    From the moment I met you
    And I knew we had something
    No one thought it could be true
    Hey, do you believe
    Do you believe in destiny?
    'Cause I do, as I did then
    When you were only 23

    Always thought that I was fine but I was wrong
    It was you, that one piece I was missing
    And I could do without you but it'd be no fun
    I found you and life was suddenly easy
    There ain't no worries now
    There ain't no feeling down

    I knew we had something
    From the moment I met you
    And I knew we had something
    No one thought it could be true
    Hey, do you believe
    Do you believe in destiny?
    'Cause I do, as I did then
    When you were only 23 Writer/s: LUIS F. OCHOA, SHAKIRA ISABEL MEBARAK RIPOLL
