  • Wise men say
    Only fools rush in
    But I can't help falling in love with you

    Wise men say
    Only fools rush in
    But I can't help falling in love with you

    Shall I stay
    Would it be a sin?
    But I can't help falling in love with you

    As the river flows
    gently to the sea
    Darling, so we go
    Some things were meant to be

    Take my hand
    Take my whole life too
    But I can't help falling in love with you

    As the river flows
    gently to the sea
    Darling so we go
    Some things were meant to be

    Take my hand
    Take my whole life too
    But I can't help falling in love with you

    I can't help falling in love with you
    I can't help falling in love with you
    I can't help falling in love with you
