Trough all my school days 
I hated boys 
those April fool days 
brought me loveless joy 
I read my Plato  
love I thought a sin, 
but since your kiss 
I'm reading Miss Glynn!

I took one look at you 
that'a all I meant to do 
and then my heart stood still! 
My feet could step and walk 
my lips could move and talk 
and yet my heart stood still!

Thought not a single word was spoken,
I could tell you knew.
That unfelt claps of hands
told me so well you knew.

I never lived at all
until the trill
of that moment when 
my heart stood still.
