Now, if you love me,
let's please don't tease
If I can hold you then
let me squeeze
My heart goes 'round and 'round
My love comes tumblin' down

You leave me Breathless
Oh, I shake all over and
you know why
I'm sure it's love and
that's no lie
'cause when you call my name
I burn like wood inflamed

You leave me Breathless
Oh, baby! Mm-mm. Crazy!
You're much too much
I can't love you enough
Now it's all right to hold me tight, 
but when you love me
love me right

Now, come on, baby
Don't be shy
'cause love was meant for you and I
Wind, rain, sleet or snow
I will be wherever you go
You leave me Breathless
