Lyrics

Nice To Be Around

Hello
Such a simple way to start a love affair
Should I jump right in and say how much I care?
Would you take it for the madness of a simple hearted clown?
Hello
With affection from a sentimental fool
From a little girl who's broken every rule
To one who brings me up when all the others seems to let me down
To one who's nice to be around

Should I say that it's a blue world without you?
Nice words I remember from an old love song
But all wrong
'Cause I never called it love before
This feeling's new
It came with you

And I know that the nicest things have never seemed to last
That we're both a bit embarrassed by our past
But I think there's something special in the feelings that we're found
And you're nice to be around
And you're nice to be around
