Lyrics

"I Never Thought"
During high school, there was no magic,
Between you and me, the feeling was friendship
Spoke when we passed, but nothing else much more.
Drifted apart, till you walked back through that door

After 10 years, I could barely remember,
What you looked like before that day in December.
But when you smiled, something just happened,
For the first time, my heart skipped a beat

I never thought that we'd be together,
We'd fall in love and start a family.
I never thought that we'd be so happy,
Laughter and fun would echo around us
Love can...catch you by surprise

That first special night seemed to last forever,
Talking and laughing, your eyes hypnotised me.
I saw in you, things I'd never noticed,
Now I look back, I realise they were always there...

I never thought that we'd be together,
We'd fall in love and start a family.
I never thought that we'd be so happy,
Laughter and fun would echo around us
Love can...catch you by surprise

INSTRUMENTAL

The speed that things moved at, was really crazy,
In a matter of months, yes replaced maybe,
The pace didn't slow, before long we married,
Forging new lives, now I love you even more (it's forever)

But, I never thought that we'd be together,
We'd fall in love and start a family.
I never thought that we'd be so happy,
Laughter and fun would echo around us
Love can...catch you by surprise

I never thought that we'd be together,
We'd fall in love and start a family.
I never thought that we'd be so happy,
Laughter and fun would echo around us
Love can...catch you by surprise

Love can...catch you by surprise
