I Can’t Help It

Looking in my mirror
Took me by surprise
I can’t help but see you
Running often through my mind

Helpless like a baby
Sensual disguise

I can’t help but love you
It gets better all the time

I can’t help it if I wanted to
I wouldn’t help it even if I could
I can’t help it if I wanted to
I wouldn’t help it, no

I can’t help it if I wanted to
I wouldn’t help it even if I could
I can’t help it if I wanted to
I wouldn’t help it, no

Love to run my fingers
Softly while you sigh
Love came and possessed you
Bringing sparkles to your eyes

Like a trip to heaven
Heaven is the prize
And I’m so glad I found you
You’re an angel in disguise

I can’t help it if I wanted to
I wouldn’t help it even if I could
I can’t help it if I wanted to
I wouldn’t help it, no
