Guess mine is not the first heart broken, my eyes are not the first to cry

I'm not the first to know, there's just no gettin' over you


Hello, I'm just a fool who's willing to sit around and wait for you

But baby can't you see, there's nothin' else for me to do

I'm hopelessly devoted to you


But now there's nowhere to hide, since you pushed my love aside

I'm not in my head, hopelessly devoted to you

Hopelessly devoted to you, hopelessly devoted to you


My head is saying "Fool! Forget him!", my heart is saying "Don't let go!"

Hold on to the end, that's what I intend to do

I'm hopelessly devoted to you


But now there's nowhere to hide, since you pushed my love aside

I'm not in my head, hopelessly devoted to you

Hopelessly devoted to you, hopelessly devoted to you

Want to make a sixteen-year-old boy in 1978

cross his eyes involuntarily?

That's what this song did to me.

Olivia Newton-John's breathy vocals,

the sweet, almost campy lyrics,

the innocence, the flirtation, the fumbling first kisses ...

Wow.


As far as popular love songs go,

there aren't many as good as this one.

I'm nowhere near sixteen anymore,

but this tune still makes me breathless.


Now if I can just get my eyes to uncross ...
