Soldier

One, two, three, four
 
It's time to say
whatever it is you came to say.
We need a break,
I think I'm about to lose my head.
 
Don't wanna play this like you do,
I'm not gonna fake it.
Don't wanna live my life with you,
I'm not gonna make it.
 
Take this weight off my shoulders.
I feel like a soldier.
Don't wanna fight this war no more
 
Don't go away,
whatever it is you needed you gave.
We need a break,
I think I'm about to lose my head.
 
Don't wanna play this like you do,
I'm not gonna fake it.
Don't wanna live my life with you,
I'm not gonna make it.
 
Take this weight off my shoulders,
I feel like a soldier
Don't wanna fight this war no more...
 

I Could Say

Open your ears
And digest these sounds
You're infected by silence
 
It changes your mind
 
Oh everyone else
Smoothes on down
But you are still stranded
In this place you found
 
Oh the times you said you were lying
I know truth lay underneath
Yeah your words they had different meanings to me
 
Lead by the trains
Of what isn't there
Oh you've been there before
So it's light enough
 
Why don't you change
Like everyone else
You've been there before
So it's light enough
 
You're like the sun
Might not ---
You're still trapped in
These endless nights
 
But you don't care
And I don't mind
I was gazing
It might be nice
Your words had different meanings to me
 
Lead by the chase
Of what isn't there
Oh you've been there before
So its light enough
 
So why don't you chase
Like everyone else
Oh you been there before so it's light enough
 
And I could say
All these words
But I still want you
 
You won't change
And that's okay
I still want you
 
I could say
All these words
But I still want you
 
You won't change
That's okay
I still want you
 
You say
All these words
I still want you
 
You won't change
And thats okay
I still want you
Want you
Want you
Want you
 
I could sing all these words
But I still want you
I still..
 

Build It Better

You can still see where the water was
In a line at the top of the chimney bricks
Sometimes, something so broken can never be fixed
So we saved a few things that were spared
And brought it to the ground
Cause you always build it better the second time around
 
I drove past the place where we use to live
Where you said you never wanted kids
Sometimes, something so broken can never be fixed
I'm sleeping more and eating again
I'm starting over like a factory town
And you always build it better the second time around
 
You always build it better the second time around
You always build it better the second time around
You always build it better
You always build it better
You always build it better the second time around
You always build it better the second time around
You always build it better the second time around
You always build it better the second time around
 

I and I

Been so long since a strange woman has slept in my bed
Look how sweet she sleeps, how free must be her dreams
In another lifetime she must have owned the world, or been faithfully wed
To some righteous king who wrote psalms beside moonlit streams
 
I and I
In creation where one’s nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives
 
Think I’ll go out and go for a walk
Not much happenin’ here, nothin’ ever does
Besides, if she wakes up now, she’ll just want me to talk
I got nothin’ to say, ’specially about whatever was
 
I and I
In creation where one’s nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives
 
Took an untrodden path once, where the swift don’t win the race
It goes to the worthy, who can divide the word of truth
Took a stranger to teach me, to look into justice’s beautiful face
And to see an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth
 
I and I
In creation where one’s nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives
 
Outside of two men on a train platform there’s nobody in sight
They’re waiting for spring to come, smoking down the track
The world could come to an end tonight, but that’s all right
She should still be there sleepin’ when I get back
 
I and I
In creation where one’s nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives
 
Noontime, and I’m still pushin’ myself along the road, the darkest part
Into the narrow lanes, I can’t stumble or stay put
Someone else is speakin’ with my mouth, but I’m listening only to my heart
I’ve made shoes for everyone, even you, while I still go barefoot
 
I and I
In creation where one’s nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I
One says to the other, no man sees my face and lives
 

Western Biographic

I'd been brought up early in the morning when Daddy came to say goodbye. While Mom was on the corner waiting for the social, 'Yes, ma'am, all the kids seem fine. Oh let us inside.' I don't believe it. I don't believe it's almost here
 
Walk past school, we meet up at the docks. I need a wage to eat tonight. We'll cover up the bruises, my brother works the hardest. The men begin to shout and fight, I'm staying inside. We don't believe it, we don't believe we're almost here, but my father tells me, 'Don't cry. Sometimes a dark horse dies--you can learn without the system. Go ahead, because even a dark horse wins. You can learn without the system.'
 
Mama put some water in the milk for us to drink, so that we won't notice... My brother came home with some food he'd stolen from a man, but said that he'd worked all day. My father said that we don't steal and pulled him from his chair, and he gave it back. We all went to bed without a sound
 
'I am just a man, I'm with my family, I don't need your help no more. You don't need to bother with me. I have all I need, I have it all.'
 

Hazel St.

There was no connecting my actions with words
In the bright sunlight the movement of birds
The car ride home was blinded again
The light would not focus, the light would not bend
 
There's no use calling, I know what you'd say
Over and over, it ended today
Words lost their meaning and could not explain
Why the subject was always just out of frame
 
I was sixteen
I lived on Hazel Street
Protect me from the scene
And guide me with your heat
 
I was sixteen
I lived on Hazel Street
Protect me from the scene
And guide me with your heat
 
Ice forms in sheets
They're melting in the street
The ice forms in sheets
They're melting in the street
 

A Fair Maid Walking All in Her Garden

A fair maid walking all in her garden
A brisk young sailor chanced to spy
He stepped up to her, thinking to woo her
And said, 'Fair maid, can you fancy I?'
 
'I see you are a man of honour
A man of honour you seem to be
How can you impose on a poor young woman
Who is not fit your servant to be?'
 
'If you're not fit to be my servant
Well, I've a great regard for thee
I'll marry you, make you my lady
And you'll have servants to wait on thee'
 
'But I have a true love of my own, sir
And seven years he's been gone from me
And seven more I will wait for him
If he's alive, he'll return to me'
 
'If seven years your love had left you
I'm sure he's either dead or drowned'
'If he's alive, I love him dearly
And if he's dead, I hope he's in glory crowned'
 
Now, when he saw that his true love was loyal
Down on his knees he quickly fall
Saying, 'I'm your poor young single sailor
For many long years on the ocean sailed'
 
'If you're my poor young single sailor
Show me the token I gave to thee
For seven years have made an alteration
Since my true love had gone to sea'
 
He pulled his hand out of his bosom
His fingers they being long and small
Saying, 'Here is the ring, look, we broke between us'
And when she saw it, down she fall
 
He picked her up all in his arms
And kisses gave her one, two, three
Saying, 'Here's your pour young single sailor
Just now returned for to marry thee'
 

Every Single Line Means Something

[Verse 1]
And then it comes to me that every single line means something
You see it's up to me to drag myself into the ocean
 
[Chorus]
And then you come to me
You come to push down on our shoulders
You say that one is three
And no one makes it up and over
And then you wonder why
Why everything falls
And then you wonder why
Why everything falls
 
[Verse 2]
And so you break your knees and still you crawl into the gutter
I know exactly why but nothing cries without an utter
 
[Chorus]
And then you come to me
You come to push down on our shoulders
You say that one is three
And no one makes it up and over
And then you wonder why
Why everything falls
And then you wonder why
Why everything falls
 
[Verse 1]
And then it comes to me that every single line means something
You see it's up to me to drag myself into the ocean
 
[Chorus]
And then you come to me
You come to push down on our shoulders
You say that one is three
And no one makes it up and over
And then you wonder why
Why everything falls
And then you wonder why
Why everything falls
 
[Outro]
There you are
Here you lie
Is this your cry?
Here you lie; here you lie
Is this your cry?
Here you lie; here you lie
Is this your cry?
Here you lie; here you lie
Is this your cry?
Here you lie; here you lie
Is this your cry?
Here you lie; here you lie
Is this your cry?
 

For Real

Some nights I thirst for real blood
For real knives, for real cries
And then the flash of steel from real guns
In real life really fills my mind
 
I really miss what really did exist
When I held your throat so tight
And I miss the bus as it swerved from us
And came crashing to its side
 
Some nights the blood from real cuts
Feels real nice when it's really mine
And if you want it to be real
Come over for one night
And we can really, really climb
 
Cause blue bridge lights
Might really burn most bright
While we watch that dark lake rise
And if you really want to see
What really matters most to me
Just take a real short drive
 
It’s just a drive into the dark stretch
Long stretch of night
Really stretch this shaking mind
And this room, unlit, unheated
And the ceiling striped
And the dark black blinds
I want to know this time
 
If you're really finally mine
I need to know that you're not lying
And so I want to see you tried
And I don't want to hear you say
It shouldn't really be this way
Because I like this way just fine
 
'Cause there's nothing quite like
The blinding light
That curtains cast aside
And no attempt is made to explain away
Things that really, really, really, really, really are behind
 
You can't hide, you can't hide, you can't hide
You can't hide, you can't hide, you can't hide
 

Third Gear Scratch

It's your greasy face, a big fat chance
Rug pull line dance
Your lock-toothed grin seems one well satisfied
 
You might do well to show some respect to me
The rest should just come to me
 
It's your ride to the slop, a gift from Hef
A spit free flesh press
Your lock-toothed grin seems one well satisfied
 
You might do well to show some respect to me
The rest should just come to me
 
You're working too hard, you're pushing the lard
 
Got my knees in your back and flicking your ears
Steel man steer queer
Steam keeps rising from your head
 
You might do well to show some respect to me
The rest should just come to me
 

House of Cards

[Verse 1]
Evan's sister, thought that no-one could resist her
She leaned in my ear and whispered dirty things she said
Come to my bedroom
I'll give you something to cling to
 
Dance by the curtains, seemed so poorly naive
But I glimpse down her shirt and catch a trick up my sleeve
I said, who did you talk to?
Before I had met you
 
[Chorus]
Venus in loves are mistaken for stars in the night sky
The birds of the kings the house of the queens make it all right
Make it all right
 
[Verse 2]
Emily's sister get's whatever she wants
Cause' she sits on a throne, she thinks she'll never get caught
But when, they're coming to get you
Who will you run to?
 
I sat on the shelf as I've forgotten the art
Of deceiving myself that the actor's the part
When no-one can hurt you
Who will you turn to?
 
[Chorus]
Venus in loves are mistaken for stars in the night sky
It all falls apart, a house built of cards made of white lies
Make it all right
 
[Outro]
Ha hoooooo, ha hoo hoooo
Ha hoooooo, ha hoo hoooo
Ha hoooooo, ha hoo hoooo
Make it all right. x4
 

We're going home

Under the surface you don't know what you'll find
Mmm, until it's your time
No second chances but all we can do is try
Mmm, I made up my mind
I can't see you
But I hear your call
Baby, hold on now
We're going home
If we make it or we don't, we won't be alone
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
If you're waiting all your life, you won't ever go
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
When I see your light shine
Some things are simple and hard to ignore, they say
Mmm, the truth is like that
We're getting colder, so far from the shore, I say
Mmm, the world is like that
I can't see you
But I hear your call
Baby, hold on now
We're going home
If we make it or we don't, we won't be alone
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
If you're waiting all your life, you won't ever go
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
When I see your light shine
There's a place that I
Wanna run with you
Darling, there's a place that I
Wanna run with you
We're going home
If we make it or we don't, we won't be alone
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
If you're waiting all your life, you won't ever go
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
When I see your light shine, I know I'm home
When I see your light shine, I know
I'm home
I'm home
When I see your light shine
 

Film Noir

Got on in New Haven
Last car on the train
Put my hat on the seat
Wipe the tears from my eyes
 
I watched my life go by
Like a movie in my brain
Scenes unreeling
In a sceneless chain
On the window
And a silver screen of rain
 
And the opening title scroll
And the score comes in and under
And I'm in the starring role
In a world of love-struck wonder
 
It's a tale full of promise
About two crazy kids
Falling in love, but in flashback
 
And then the music,
That gorgeous music
And I wake up,
Rattling down the railroad track.
 
He could be sweet,
But I stayed on my guard
Just how good a liar
Can a decent man be?
 
I always played my hand
Like I didn't have the cards
Cause he held them all
So I could never see
Yes, he played me for a fool
And I agreed
 
And the closing credits roll
And the waves come in like thunder
Cause the hero's lost control
And I made a fatal blunder
 
Just another sad story
Two star-crossed kids
Racing headlong up a cul-de-sac
 
And then that music
That mournful music
And the train's disappearing
Down that railroad track
 
And the long, slow dissolve
As we fade to black
 

Terror!

[Verse 1]
Baby don't go
To the haunted hotel
I've got a really bad feeling
In my lungs and my bones
Science can't save you
And your parents are away
On holiday in Mexico
Buying trinkets in the town
 
[Verse 2]
The haunted hotel
In a dream that I've been having
Has got me waking up sweating
Afraid to turn on the news
My internal dialogue
Is rutted and confused
Trying to find some peace and quiet
But the damage was done
 
[Bridge]
And my job in the city won't matter no more
When the network is down and my flesh is all torn
 
[Chorus]
Baby stay here
In the shadow of the buildings
In familiar surroundings
In your safety zone
Every plane is a missile
Every suitcase a bomb
There's no reason in my head now
Only fear in my bones
 
[Outro]
(Pull yourself together, no reason staying in)
(Pull yourself together, no reason staying in)
(Pull yourself together, no reason staying in)
(Pull yourself together, no reason staying in)
(Pull yourself together, no reason staying in)
(Pull yourself together, no reason staying in)
(Pull yourself together, no reason staying in)
(Pull yourself together, no reason staying in)
 

Dead Friends

I'm getting bored, yeah, watching tv, yeah
Same shit all the time
 
I go to the movies
Somebody help me translate every line
It seems I don't try
 
I'm talking to my dead friends
Cause they keep me alive
And I'm talking to my dead friends
Cause they know how to try
 
Talking to dead friends isn't as special
Same shit all the time
Put in a seance, a comedic romance
And dead friends tend to whine
It seems all the time
 
I'm talking to my dead friends
Cause they keep me alive
And I'm talking to my dead friends
Cause they know how to shine
 
And the life of the party is harder to find
Until you are the last one around
You know it's better cause
(And you can bury the real bad times)
Where's the shovel, girl?
(And you can bury the real bad times)
And you can bury the real bad times
 
I'm talking to my dead friends
(And you can bury the real bad times)
I'm talking to my dead friends
(And you can bury the real bad times)
I'm talking to my dead friends
(And you can bury the real bad times)
 

Here's Your Future

God reached his hand down from the sky
He flooded the land and he set it afire
He said 'Fear me again, know I'm your father
Remember that no-one can breathe underwater'
 
So bend your knees and bow your heads
Save your babies, here's your future
Yeah, here's your future
 
God reached his hand down from the sky
God asked Noah if he wanted to die
He said 'No sir, oh, no sir!'
 
God said 'Here's your future, it's gonna rain.'
So we're packing our things, we're building a boat
We're gonna create a new master race
Cause we're so pure, oh lord, we're so pure!
So here's your future
 
God told his son 'It's time to come home
I promise you won't have to die all alone
I need you to pay for the sins I create'
The son said 'I will, but dad, I'm afraid!'
 
Yeah, so here's your future
So here's your future
Yeah here's your future
So here's your future
So here's your future
So here's your future
So here's your future
 

Cheer It On

[Intro]
(Operator, get me the President of the world. This is an emergency.)
 
[Verse 1]
Do your neighbour a favour
Collect their morning paper
Clip out all the sad bits, no one wants to read that
Let them take their kids to school and the zoo in peace
 
[Chorus]
When you're standing near
Tokyo Police Club
When you're standing next to me
Tokyo Police Club
When you take the tunnel
Arresting you for being in love
 
[Verse 2]
Caught the fever that's spreading
Do you have a warm bed we could stay the night in?
It's all sick boys in this house, no one wants to feed us
Dumb kid you should have hid you'd stand a better chance there
 
[Chorus]
When you're standing near
Tokyo Police Club
When you're standing next to me
Tokyo Police Club
Lost in the Pacific
Arresting you for being in love
 

Fire and Ice

Oh, you're giving me the fever tonight
I don't wanna give in: I'd be playing with fire!
You forget I've seen you work before:
Take them straight to the top,
Leave them crying for more...
 
I've seen you burn them before!
 
Fire and ice!
You come on like a flame
Then, you turn a cold shoulder.
Fire and ice!
I wanna give you my love,
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart!
 
You'll just tear it apart...
 
Moving in for the kill tonight,
You've got every advantage
When they put out the light.
It's not so pretty when it fades away,
'Cause it's just an illusion in this passion play.
 
I've seen you burn them before!
 
Fire and ice!
You come on like a flame
Then, you turn a cold shoulder.
Fire and ice!
I wanna give you my love,
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart!
 
So, you think you've got it all figured out:
You're an expert in the field, without a doubt.
But I know your methods inside and out
And I won't be taken in by fire and ice...
 
Fire and ice!
You come on like a flame
Then, you turn a cold shoulder.
Fire and ice!
I wanna give you my love,
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart...
 
You come on like a flame
Then, you turn a cold shoulder.
Fire and ice!
I wanna give you my love,
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart!
 
You come on like a flame
Then, you turn a cold shoulder.
Fire and ice...

Look Away

There's something you should know
I can't seem to love someone anymore*
There's something going on
And I can't turn my back on it anymore
 
How can we go to sleep at night
And lay there in our beds
When we know whats going on
With the world today
 
Is it in my head?
Am I the only one?
Is it in my head?
With the war has just begun?*
We look away
 
Is it in my head?
Look away
 
There's something in the air at night
That feels so different
And I don't understand
I didn't see this one coming
 
How can we go to sleep at night?
And lay there in our beds
When we know whats going on
With the world today
 
Is it in my head?
Am I the only one?
Is it in my head?
With the war has just begun?*
We look away
 
No.

And suddenly that name will never be the same to me
Maria! I've just kissed a girl named Maria
And suddenly I've found how wonderful a sound can be

Say it soft and it's almost like praying
Maria, I'll never stop saying: 'Maria!'

Say it soft and it's almost like praying

This is a lesson, definition, of the boom shak-a-tack
No batty rider, tear off a girl picnic, get hot
But ya boy beat down wall
Selector wheel up that
The Shine give you the verbs
Which is the action words
Dropped them in my rough neck style
That make the song boys observe
And I would never run away in the heart of battle
I round up the girls, them, like cowboys round up cattle
From line one, verse two
Me just show off my skill
And I would never sell my soul for a thousand dollar bill
Reggae music round the world, me respect that
'Cuz every time we touch the mic, they screaming boom shak-a-tack
All the massives catch the vibes
We're unorthodox
This is a lesson, definition, of the boom shak-a-tack

The wickedest time, me and me girl a come
Born Jamericans, tear the place strong

Me want it every day, yeah

Physical fit is the kid
When me start to release
Me grab the microphone and chant
To make the dollars increase
Sexy girls to the front
Come hear the healthy young man
And me will surely give you the remedy
One by one
Born Jamericans is the crew
From the streets of Washington
Where nuff people smoke the crack
And them fire the M1
Me legalize me not despise
The air is rugged and rough
Some DJs open up their mouth
It's like a damn trash truck
But reggae music's round the world
'Cuz every time we touch the mic, they screaming boom shak-a-tack
All the massives catch the vibes
We're unorthodox
This is a lesson, definition, of the boom shak-a-tack

Christmas Waltz

Frosted windowpanes
Candles gleaming inside
Painted candy canes on the tree
Santa's on his way
He's filled his sleigh with things
Things for you and for me
 
It's that time of year
When the world falls in love
Every song you hear seems to say
'Merry Christmas,
May your New Year dreams come true'
 
And this song of mine
In three-quarter time
Wishes you and yours
The same thing, too

The same thing, too

הבה נגילה (Hava Nagila)

When you feelin low
There’s a place to go
Come and dance with me
 
When you feel the beat
Stampin in your feet
Dance away, break free
 
Take two steps to the left
Two steps to the right
And turn around in circles, in circles tonite
Take two steps to the left
Two steps to the right
And turn around in circles, in circles tonite
 
The beat’s groovin
The circles movin
I’m feelin young and free
The floor’s burning
The circles turning
That’s where I wanna be
 
הבה נגילה, הבה נגילה, הבה נגילה 1 La La La
When you feel alone
Lookin for the zone
There’s a place to be
We unite as one
Come and join the fun
Take my hand, and see
 
Take two steps to the left
Two steps to the right
And turn around in circles, in circles tonite
Take two steps to the left
Two steps to the right
And turn around in circles, in circles tonite
 
The beat's groovin
The circles movin
I'm feelin young and free
The floor’s burning
The circles turning
That’s where I wanna be

Cómo vivir

Una sola cosa tengo que saber,
importante de entender,
tener siempre bien claro en que creer
para no perder la fe.
Él tiene el poder,
no tengo nada que temer,
yo por siempre a su lado estaré
y feliz yo viviré.
 
Now we really know
what we need to seek in life
Our friends may come and go
But music's keeping us A live
 
Ref:
Baila baila otra vez,
baila baila, no pares,
todos juntos esta vez,
Let's Dance.
I want u to take control
Hold my hand and don't let go
A piece of heaven we can Show
The whole wide world the whole wide world
 
Luego de varios caminos transitar
encontré la felicidad,
mi familia, mis amigos, mi hogar,
ahora entiendo la verdad.
 
Now we really know
what we need to seek in life
Our friends may come and go
But music's keeping us A live
 
Ref:
 
Dicen, muchos dicen:
'Esta vida no es fácil,
hay problemas, situaciones,
es difícil sobrevivir'
Pero teniéndolo siempre en mi mente,
valorando el momento, el presente
pensando y siendo inteligente,
la mejor manera de vivir.
 
Junto a Él muchas cosas yo aprendí
que la vida es un regalo que recibí,
saber agradecer cada momento que viví
y ahora todos a cantar la la la la la la.

Super Trouper (Super Radio Remix)

Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won’t feel blue
Like I always do
’Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you
 
I was sick and tired of everything
When I called you last night from Glasgow
All I do is eat and sleep and sing
Wishing every show was the last show
 
So imagine I was glad to hear you’re coming
Suddenly I feel all right
And it’s gonna be so different when I'm on the stage tonight
 
Tonight the Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
Smiling, having fun
Feeling like a number one
 
Tonight the Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won’t feel blue
Like I always do
’Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you
 
Facing twenty thousand of your friends
How can anyone be so lonely?
Part of a success that never ends
Still I’m thinking about you only
 
There are moments when I think I’m going crazy
But it’s gonna be alright
Everything will be so different when I’m on the stage tonight
 
Tonight the Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
Smiling, having fun
Feeling like a number one
 
Tonight the Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won’t feel blue
Like I always do
’Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you
 
So I’ll be there when you arrive
The sight of you will prove to me I'm still alive
And when you take me in your arms and hold me tight
I know it’s gonna mean so much tonight
 
Tonight the Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
Smiling, having fun
Feeling like a number one
 
Tonight the Super Trouper beams are gonna blind me
But I won’t feel blue
Like I always do
’Cause somewhere in the crowd there’s you
 
Super Trouper lights are gonna find me
Shining like the sun
Smiling, having fun
Feeling like a number one
 

Old Me

Wake up and I'm feeling fly
This morning feels like summertime
Naked in my living room
And just like that I'm over you
 
Prayed for a guiding light
Wished on a star
I guess you're not alright
Until you are
I went to bed last night
With a broken heart
Now something's different
 
Sometimes I wonder what you'd say
If you could see my smiling face
Here I am I made it through
This is me forgetting you
 
Prayed for a guiding light
Wished on a star
I guess you're not alright
Until you are
I went to bed last night
With a broken heart
Now something's different
Hey
 
I'm feeling like the old me
No you cannot control me
I earned these blessings wholly
Rain on me
They got me singing la la la la
I'm feeling like the old me
She's drunk at karaoke
(Ladies do you feel me, ladies sing it with me)
God damn you should have told me
The old me, she got me singing
La la la la
 

Do With It

Can't hide it's so obvious
You've got a crush you've been feeling me
You've been trying to make it happen
Wanna know what you imagine
Can't lie that I'm curious
Come a little closer I wanna see
I've been loving the attention
Should we work out all this tension
 
Promise baby I won't bite
Not unless you want me to
You don't have to be so shy
Show me what you wanna do
 
I'll let you put your hands on me
Finally it's your lucky day
Now that you got me what you gonna do with it
Feels so right, changed my mind
After all this time
Now that you got me what you gonna do with it
 
Step up if you're man enough
I'll make you forget everything you know
Cause you don't got the credentials
But I see you got potential
Tonight we gon' live it up
Gotta do it big if you're trying to roll
Yeah I called you out the stable
Know you're willing are you able
 
Promise baby I won't bite
Not unless you want me to
You don't have to be so shy
Show me what you wanna do
 
I'll let you put your hands on me
Finally it's your lucky day
Now that you got me what you gonna do with it
Feels so right, changed my mind
After all this time
Now that you got me what you gonna do with it
 
Whatcha gon do, whatcha gon do
Now it's on you, now it's on you baby
Whatcha gon do, whatcha gon do yeah
Now that you got me what you gonna do with it
