Heart Leap



Heart Leap

Let me send you to the moon and win you with one word
Hear the truth of love
Let me make your body swoon and give flight to the bird
You're my turtledove

Let me take you in my arms and lift you with one sweep
You're my sweet delight
Let me excite all your charms and give your heart a leap
Please be mine tonight
