lyrics

I'll never feel bad for this heart that I have beating
Not even for one second, my dear
I'll never feel guilty for listening to my body
The way our nature taught us to feel
But just animals connecting, it loses all its sexiness
I've always been a fan of the chase
So let down your defenses, I'll show you what romance is
An angel with a devilish grace

Let the music awaken your body
Let the rhythm envelop your soul
Let the fire that's burning inside you
Erupt and take total control

Just want to make you move
Just want to make you feel
Astounded by the truth
(I mean it)
It's electricity through every bone and every beat
I'll show you love, I'll show you heat
Electric moans, the wood it groans, as it bends to meet the tone
The tension so thick I can taste it
But I've got the means to make you weak at the knees
It has a startling effect
I pull you close, and bite your tongue
It speaks in song
It's the one that you will never forget

It doesn't take a lot to make connections
It doesn't take a lot to cause a spark
But once you've built a ship, you've built a shipwreck
We've created a disaster from the start
Now we're at each other's buttons like our jobs depended on it
You know I'm going to work to earn that raise
Another piece advances in this game that's left me speechless
Show me what you've got
Is that all you've got?

It kind of works like that
Just move your feet like this
Taking now the lead
Dancing on my skin
Start to feel the beat
Open up and sing
You might not know the words but
I love the way you breathe
Brush your fingertips
Right under my seams
Keep stitching from within
One day I'm bound to split

Just want to make you move
Just want to make you feel
Astounded by the truth
(I mean it)
It's electricity through every bone and every beat
I'll show you love, I'll show you heat
Electric moans, the wood it groans, as it bends to meet the tone
The tension so thick I can taste it
But I've got the means to make you weak at the knees
It has a startling effect
I pull you close, and bite your tongue
It speaks in song
It's the one that you will never forget
