1. We met, we spoke, and I awoke,
To some emotion new.
We met again,
We parted, then
I thought and thought of you!
Then came the awakening,
Brought by your first kiss;
I've dreamed, I've sought, but never thought,
That love could be like this:

So, this is Love!
So this is Love!
I'm sure it is, and yet,
I but seem in a dream, since we met.
To thrill at thought of someone,
A thrill you never knew;
If this is Love, sweetheart,
Then someone's in love with you!

2. We met, we spoke, though love awoke,
We only met to part
We'll meet, we'll speak
But smiles will seek
To hide the tears that start
Now with the awakening
Strange though it may seem
I find that I can smile goodbye
To every hope and dream.
