FIRST VERSE Go easy on those eyes, I'm about to lose my grip Go easy on that smile, I'm afraid that I might slip Lay off on that calling and temptin' me to try 'Cause I'm so scared of fallin', I'll never learn to fly CHORUS Then you say 'Touch me. You can reach me.' Now you can make me want to fly You make it seem so easy Catch me if I try SECOND VERSE You tempted me to step off the edge of reason I thought that I knew better than to start believing in ... Love, love, love ... But if I read you right, you just might want to dance all night Well I have risked a fall before, but not from this height CHORUS THIRD VERSE And when I try it's only falling, just what could be the fear? You'll never learn to fly unless you take that first step Way up where your heart will be your only guide Let up on your worryin', head up on your heart CHORUS CODA Then you say 'Touch me. You can reach me.' Then you say 'Touch me. You can reach me.' Then you say 'Touch me. You can teach me ... Teach me how to fly...'
