Only When I Lose Myself

It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
That I find myself
I find myself
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 hypnotized, I feel paralized
I have found heaven

There’s a thousand reasons
Why I shouldn't spent my time with you
For every reason not to be here I can think of two
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
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 & disappear
There's a feeling of content that now 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
It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
That I find my life
I find myself
It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
That I find myself
I find myself
