From the moment I saw you
There was something about you
Just from the look in your eyes
I knew I wanted to stay
How you were licking your lips
I could tell you we're danger
Babe you're the type of boy
Not even love can change
So I know I should leave
But I'm not ready to go
About to ride that wave
Got me in your zone

Caught up in that undertow
Baby you already know
I know I should leave
But something won't let go
Caught up in that undertow
Baby you already know
I know I should leave
But something won't let go

Now when I'm around
You get a little nervous
And it's understood
Cause you're in my zone
It's getting hard to breathe
It feels like nothing can save ya
And I don't want it to seem
Like I already know

You're caught up in that undertow
Baby I already know
You know you should leave
But something won't let go
You're caught up in that undertow
Baby I already know
You know you should leave
But something won't let go

When I hear myself speak
I don't know what I'm saying
I know I'm losing my cool
And I don't want it to show
I'm trying to make it even
Boy you got me off balance
Guess we're both used to being in control

We're caught up in that undertow
Baby I already know
We know we should leave
But something won't let go
We're caught up in that undertow
Baby I already know
We know we should leave
But something won't let go
