It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
That I find myself
I find myself

Something beautiful is happening inside for me
Something sensual, it’s full of fire and mystery
I feel hypnotised
I feel paralysed
I have found heaven

There’s a thousand reasons
Why I shouldn’t spend my time with you
For every reason not to be here
I can think of two
To keep me hanging on
Feeling nothing’s wrong
Inside your heaven

It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
That I find myself
I find myself

I can feel the emptiness inside me
Fade and disappear
There’s a feeling of contentment
Now that you are here
I feel satisfied
I belong inside
Your velvet heaven

Did I need to sell my soul for pleasure like this
Did I have to lose control to treasure your kiss
Did I need to place my heart in the palm of your hand
Before I could even start to understand

It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
That I find myself
I find myself
