Lyrics

Hypnotize Me

Written By: Hunter Wolfe, ARE

Na NaNa Na Na Na Na, Na NaNa Na Na Na- x2
Whoo!
Okay, Okay, whooooo,
-Verse 1
All signs say separate but we seem to be fixed,
I say I've had enough but you've got my mind tricked,
You hear that warning bell, ringing in your head,
Here we go another round, tomorrow's when we'll quit,
-Pre-Chorus
She said it's alright, she said it's alright with me x2
Oh yea baby now 1,2,3
-Chorus
I never want to let you go now and I can't believe my eyes,
You are the one for me girl, yea you got me hypnotized,
I just want to hold you tight now, yea baby don't you understand,
You are the one for me girl, yea go on now take my hand

-Verse 2
So Hypnotize Me why don't you, I know you're not above it,
You're as thin as a promise now and you're always one to covet,
Woke up from this crazy dream, took a step then slipped,
Found myself looking up but I can't remember the trip

-Pre-Chorus
She said it's alright, she said it's alright with me x2
Oh yea baby now let it be
-Chorus
I never want to let you go now and I can't believe my eyes,
You are the one for me girl, yea you got me hypnotized,
I just want to hold you tight now, yea baby don't you understand,
You are the one for me girl, yea go on now take my hand

-Verse 3
You are my addiction and I'm your crutch,
You, You, You tear me down while I'm still holding you up,
I've made mistakes, yes how many does it take,
And I never claimed to be no saint, I'm not the only one to blame

-Pre-Chorus
She said it's alright, she said it's alright with me x2
Oh yea baby now can't you see
-Chorus
I never want to let you go now and I can't believe my eyes,
You are the one for me girl, yea you got me hypnotized,
I just want to hold you tight now, yea baby don't you understand,
You are the one for me girl, yea go on now take my hand

Na NaNa Na Na Na Na, Na NaNa Na Na Na- x4
