Santana

Santana is a rock band based around guitarist Carlos Santana and founded in the late 1960s. It first came to public attention after they performed the song "Soul Sacrifice" at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, when their Latin rock provided a contrast to other acts on the bill.

Since the moment I spotted you,
Like walking round with little wings on my shoes
My stomach's filled with the butterflies
Ooh and it's alright
Bouncing round from cloud to cloud
I got the feeling like I'm never going to come down
If I said I didn't like it then you know I'd lied

Every time I try to talk to you
I get tongue-tied
Turns out that everything I say to you
Comes out wrong and never comes out right

So I'll say 'why don't you and I get together
And take on the world and be together forever
Heads we will and tails we'll try again'
So I say 'why don't you and I hold each other
And fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
'Cause without you they're never gonna let me in'

When's this fever going to break?
I think I've handled more than any man can take
I'm like a love-sick puppy chasing you around
Ooh and it's alright
Bouncing round from cloud to cloud
I got the feeling like I'm never going to come down
If said I didn't like it then you know I'd lied

Every time I try to talk to you
I get tongue-tied
Turns out that everything I say to you
Comes out wrong and never comes out right

So I'll say 'why don't you and I get together
And take on the world and be together forever
Heads we will and tails we'll try again'
So I say 'why don't you and I hold each other
And fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
'Cause without you they're never gonna let me in'

And slowly I begin to realize this is never gonna end
Right about the same time you walk by
And I say 'Oh here we go again, oh'

Every time I try to talk to you
I get tongue-tied
Turns out that everything I say to you
Comes out wrong and never comes out right

So I'll say 'why don't you and I get together
And take on the world and be together forever
Heads we will and tails we'll try again'
So I say 'why don't you and I hold each other
And fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
'Cause without you they're never gonna let me in'

So I'll say 'why don't you and I get together
And take on the world and be together forever
Heads we will and tails we'll try again'
So I say 'why don't you and I hold each other
And fly to the moon and straight on to heaven
'Cause without you they're never gonna let me in'
