SpeechlessPlease don't ask me 'bout current events,
Hope you don't judge me if I don't make too much sense, but
I can't help it, I'm speechless when I'm around you.

It's not like me, behaving this way,
Usually I would have a lot more to say but
I can't help it, I'm speechless when I'm around you.

My throat turn to sandpaper, and my tongue ties in a knot,
I shake like a maraca, my cheeks start to get hot,
Then I open up my mouth and try to give it all I've got,
But I just stutter and sputter and ....

You always seem so collected and cool.
You must think that I'm a genuine fool,
But I can't help it, I'm speechless when I'm around you!
