When you're in love, there's no time and no space,
There's a permanent smile on your face;
Your friends all complain that you're going insane,
But the truth is they're just afraid.

And hey, hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares;
And hey (hey) hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares.

You've done it now,
You've done it now.

When you decide that what counts is inside,
Your friends all say it's a lie; (it's a lie)
But there's no brighter light than the look in her eyes,
When you're walking her home through the night.

And hey, hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares;
And hey (hey) hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares.

You've done it now,
You've done it now.

Let yourself go with the tide,
There's an angel by your side tonight.

Oh, back at the bar getting cynically stoned,
Your friends are drinking alone;
But it's funny they don't even cross your mind,
When she asks you into her home.

And hey, hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares;
And hey (hey) hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares.

And hey, hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares;
And hey (hey) hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares.

You've done it now,
You've done it now,
You've done it now,
You've done it now,
You've done it now.
