lyrics

ASK ME WHY

ASK ME WHY
THE BOY LOOKS LIKE HE'S SO IN LOVE
ASK ME ME WHY
I'M LUCKY AS I COULD BE
ASK ME WHY
HE DOES THOSE CRAZY THINGS HE DOES
I'LL TELL YOU WHY
THE BOY'S IN LOVE WITH ME

SOME HIDE THEIR LIGHT
THEY DON'T WANT NO ONE TO KNOW
THEY'RE SO AFRAID
TO LET THEIR EMOTIONS SHOW

BUT I CAN TELL BY THE TWINKLE IN HIS EYE
THE WAY HE WALKS AND HIS SMILE
NEVER SEEN HIM LOOKIN' ANY BETTER
I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM ANY HAPPIER
WHEN WE KISS IT GETS NO BETTER THAN THIS

ASK ME WHY
THE BOY LOOKS LIKE HE'S SO IN LOVE
ASK ME ME WHY
I'M LUCKY AS I COULD BE
ASK ME WHY
HE DOES THOSE CRAZY THINGS HE DOES
I'LL TELL YOU WHY
THE BOY'S IN LOVE WITH ME

I KEPT THE FAITH
I NEVER HAD NO DOUBT
THAT SOME DAY
HE WOULD LET HIS FEELINGS OUT

NOW I CAN TELL BY THE TWINKLE IN HIS EYE
THE WAY HE WALKS AND HIS SMILE
NEVER SEEN HIM LOOKIN' ANY BETTER
I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM ANY HAPPIER
AND WHEN WE KISS IT GETS NO BETTER THAN THIS

ASK ME WHY
THE BOY LOOKS LIKE HE'S SO IN LOVE
ASK ME ME WHY
I'M LUCKY AS I COULD BE
ASK ME WHY
HE DOES THOSE CRAZY THINGS HE DOES
I'LL TELL YOU WHY
THE BOY'S IN LOVE WITH ME

I CAN TELL BY THE TWINKLE IN HIS EYE
THE WAY HE WALKS AND HIS SMILE
NEVER SEEN HIM LOOKIN' ANY BETTER
I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM ANY HAPPIER
AND WHEN WE KISS IT GETS NO BETTER THAN THIS
