Border of roses and rose leaves.

When You Fall in Love

Lyrics & Music: Maureen O'Brien
Insp: Sinclair and Sakai, Babylon 5

Sinclair --
When you fall in love,
You might just know it from the start
As all your world is torn apart
And formed anew.
Nothing that you do:
You see her as she's passing by,
A certain smile is in her eyes
And your heart says, "Oh.
It's you."

Sakai --
When you fall in love,
You might not know it for a while
Until you miss that certain smile
The whole day through.
Never had a clue --
But now it churns you up inside.
You're learning that you cannot hide
When your heart says, "Oh.
It's you."

Both --
Years when we're apart
Barely seem like years at all;
When barriers begin to fall,
We try to stall, but we walk through.

Then the changes start:
We hurt each other as we grieve,
Because we know that when we leave
Each other, life leaves too;
What can you do,
But hurt anew?

When you fall in love,
(When you fall in love)
It doesn't come with guarantees.
So first we burn and then we freeze:
Torture for two.
For when love is true,
There's nothing you can do at all
Except to answer to the call
When your heart says, "Oh.
It's you."

Sinclair --
Oh, it's you.

Sakai --
Oh, it's you.

Both --
Oh, it's you!
