Rock Ballad of The Week: Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds “Fallin’ In Love”

Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again
Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again

I could never see what fate had planned for me
And then, you came and made my dreams this man’s reality
Maybe you can see all the things you’ve meant to me
But my simple fate is at the gate and girl, you’ve got the key

Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again
Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again

It seems like yesterday you and I first loved this way
But now, I know how love can grow with each and every day
As we lay at midnight’s hour and feel love’s hidden power
So strong and bold as life unfolds a mystery to me

Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again
Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again

You and me for eternity
In love, we’ll always be
Young and free and naturally
The way it’s gotta be

Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again
Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again

Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again
Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again

Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again
Baby, baby, fallin’ in love
I’m fallin’ in love again
