Did you play a trick on me, trick on me?
Or maybe you even put
A spell on me, spell on me.
Do you think there’s
A nice look about me, look about me?
I’m downtrodden, you’re
Standing on me, standing on me.
Quench the lights now
And I’ll take your hand.
We’ll go dancing,
And we’ll chill.
Will you have the time?
The time is going,
Going far too fast,
Too fast because,
Because you came.
For my whole life long,
I wouldn’t be able
To stop at all. You are my world.
I will never be able to change
Because you came.
