„First thing I remember when you came into my life
I said I wanna get that girl, no matter what I do
Well I guess I've been in love before and once or twice have been on the floor
But I've never loved no-one the way that I love you.“

I've never met the man; he came out of me. I’d feel a lot easier if I’d met him and imitated him, as a matter of fact.
