If you think you’re alone
that you’re the only one who is afraid
Let me tell you, I feel just like you do
And sometimes I stand back
From desires and dreams I don’t understand
They overwhelm me
I feel just like you do

I feel just like you do
I feel just like you do
Just like you do
Just like you do
I feel just like you do
Just like you do
I feel just like you do

And when it comes to love
You want me to be the one to say
The words: I love you
But I feel just like you do
But let’s try to return
To that brave innocence we once knew
I wish you were an ocean
So I could jump into you
