So many things we have
Why don't you stay with me tonight?
I'm trying to discover you
Together again for all the night.

There's something going on right now
Feelin' happy
Feel the moon.
Let's get closer

'Cause we're dance and dance.
All my friends are talking to me
What's this love I see.

I know you can make it right. I'm still waiting now
Waiting for the love I need.
If you want me too there's something don't understand.
I don't know.

So many things we have
Why don't you stay with me tonight?...
