Girl words can't express the way I feel for you
The way you hold me, the way you touch me
Girl everything you do to me, you know I like it
Don't stop now

My dreams are now reality
Each and every time you are here with me
Your touch, you give me with your hand
When you caress my skin, I'm under your command
Girl, you hypnotize me with your eyes
It took me some time, but now I realize
It's you to whom which I belong
I love it, the feeling's getting strong

[Chorus]
I like
The things you do to me
I like
It brings up ecstasy
I like
It really turns me on
I like 
The feelings getting strong

Oh girl, you are my lover
When I'm with you there is no other
A spell you got me under
Please don't you leave, I'm on my hands and knees
Words can't express the way I feel
Emotions for you- are so real
Girl, you love me over and over again
Don't stop, please don't let it end

[Chorus]

You know I love it
Hey girl, you know I care
Suga, you know I love it, baby
Ohhhohhohh

[Chorus:Repeat x3]
