Lost in a dream
I don't know which way to go
(A-let me say it)
If you are all that you seem
Then, baby, I'm movin' (movin') way too slow

I've been a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door
How about some information, please?

Straight up
Now tell me, do you really wanna love me forever
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or am I caught in a hit-and-run?
Straight up
Now tell me, is it gonna be you and me together
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or are you just having fun?

Time's standing still
Waiting for some 
(Waiting for some) small clue
(A-let me tell you know)
I keep getting chills
When I think your love (when I think your love) is true

I've been a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door
How about some information, please?

Straight up
Now tell me, do you really wanna love me forever
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or am I caught in a hit-and-run?
Straight up
Now tell me, is it gonna be you and me together
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or are you just having fun?

You are so hard to read
You play hide-and-seek
With your true intentions
If you're only playing games
I'll just have to say
A-bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye

A-do-do you love me, do-do you love me, baby?
Come on now
A-do-do you love me, do-do you love me?
A-tell me, baby

I've been a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door
Are you more than hot for me
Or am I a page in your history book?
I don't mean to make demands
But the word and the deed go hand in hand
How about some information, please?
(Please, please, ah, please, please)

Straight up, now tell me (tell me)
Straight up, now tell me (tell me)
Straight up, now tell me (tell me)
Straight up, now tell me
Straight up, now tell me

Straight up
Now tell me, do you really wanna love me forever
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or am I caught in a hit-and-run?
Straight up
Now tell me, is it gonna be you and me together
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or are you just having fun?

Straight up
Now tell me, do you really wanna love me forever
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or am I caught in a hit-and-run?
Straight up
Now tell me, is it gonna be you and me together
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or are you just having fun?
