Beautiful Love Lyrics:

Beautiful love, you are a mystery.
Beautiful love, what have you done to me?
I was contented till you came along,
thrilling my soul with your song

Beautiful love, I’ve roamed your paradise.
Searching for love, my dream to realize
Reaching for heaven, depending on you.
Beautiful love, will my dreams come true?
