Love is blind!

You stole my heart ‘though I don’t know your name
You fill my dreams ‘though I’ve not seen your face
I know that I could meet you any place
I’ll take my chance to win you in the game

The days that came before were not the same
My life was cast adrift without a crew
I’ve found a guiding star and called it you
I’ll take my chance to win you in the game

If we can’t make it work I’ll take the blame
And walk away before I hurt your heart
But losing you would tear my soul apart
I’ll take my chance to win you in the game

You stole my heart ‘though I don’t know your name
I’ll take my chance to win you in the game
