And you being together I start to dream
About us

And we're doing all the things we said we should do
Come here girl

Let me tell you bout these feelings I've never had
We begin
Never end
And let nothing come between us Never seperate us babygirl

Chorus: x2
Girl you know I love you
Girl you know need you
and place no one above you
Girl I'll never hurt you

Verse 2:
It's a kiss
total bliss
It's the morning when I rise and I kiss your lips
Tell your
And I'll tell my friends
That we're goin on a trip off to never land

Let me tell you about these feelings I've never had
