Lyrics

I'm in love with you, you silly thing anyone can see
What is it with you, you silly thing just take it from me
It was not a chance meeting
Feel my heart beating you're the one

You could take all this, take it away I'd still have it all
'Cause I've climbed the tree of life
And that is why, no longer scared if I fall

When I get lost in space
I can return to this place
'Cause, you're the one

Nothing fails, no more fears, nothing fails
You washed away my tears
Nothing fails, no more fears, nothing fails, nothing fails

I'm not religious but I feel so moved
Makes me want to pray, pray you'll always be here
I'm not religious but I feel such love
Makes me want to pray

When I get lost in space
I can return to this place
'Cause you're the one

I'm not religious but I feel so moved
I'm not religious makes me wanna pray
I'm not religious but I feel so moved
I'm not religious makes me wanna pray

I'm not religious but I feel so moved
I'm not religious makes me wanna pray
I'm not religious but I feel so moved
I'm not religious makes me wanna pray

Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails you washed away my tears
Nothing fails, no more fears, nothing fails
