Love at First Sight
By Eric Michael Hopper

V1

Baby, you are the one that has got hold of me
Baby, what have you done, you've got me on my knees
Everyday I'm in Love, its been a mystery
Baby you are the one, I've seen you in my dreams

Chours

What I found out is you were one of a kind
From the moment that I saw your smile
And on that day, well I was blown away
And in that moment, your smile took my breath away, yeah

I knew that it was Love at First Sight
I only wish that baby you could be mine
And I knew that it was love at First ... Baby love at First Sight
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,yeah

V2

Baby you are the one that has me believe
And baby you are the song that has come over me
Ill wrap the world in a box and give you all you need
Baby you are the one that made this melody

Chorus

What I found out is you were one of a kind
From the moment that I saw your smile
And on that day, well I was blown away
And in that moment, your smile took my breath away, yeah

I knew that it was Love at First Sight
I only wish that baby you could be mine
And I knew that it was love at First ... Baby love at First Sight
Yeah

Bridge

What everybody really wants is someone they can find
One chance, at first glance; can't let this pass me by
Everybody wants someone they can find... at First Sight!

I knew that it was Love at First Sight
I only wish that baby, you could be mine
And , I knew that it was Love at First Sight
From the moment that I saw you smile
And I knew that it was Love at First... Baby Love at First Sight
