Lyrics

And Chill

Written By: After 9

My ex I date five long years
Then one day this new man he magically appeared
He came into my life erased my fears
And I’m so happy that he’s here
I can’t wait to tell him how I feel
Lets go somewhere to talk and just chill.

Chrous:
I know a place where we can go
And chill
Repeat 2x

Come with me let me take you by the hand
Hold me close don’t let go
I’m held by a real man
My visions clear this loving is for real
Lets go somewhere to talk and just chill

Chorus:
I know a place where we can go
And chill
Repeat 2x

Tonight’s the night baby
Tonights the night baby
I know a place where we can go and chill
And chill

Quiet Is Kept

Entangled, entrapment, intertwined
By the melodic sounds of After 9®
Can you feel the vibe?
It’s soothing moving, grooving, it’s alluring
Come take a walk with me to the other side
Come along with us on this blissful ride.
Take a walk with me baby to the other side
Can you feel the vibe, are you enjoying the ride?

Entangled, entrapment, intertwined
By the blissful sounds of After9®

Take a walk with me baby to the other side
