Lyric

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

Babe, you’re getting closer
The lights are goin’ dim
The sound of your breathin’
Has made the mood I’m in
All of my resistance
Is lying on the floor
Taking me to places
I’ve never been before

Ooh, and I can feel it,
Feel it, feel it, feel it

Way down where the music plays
Way down like a tidal wave
Way down where the fires blaze
Way down, down, way, way on down
Way on down

Ooh, my head is spinnin’
You got me in your spell,
A hundred magic fingers
A swhirling carousel
The medicine within me
No doctor could prescribe
Your love is doing something
That I just can’t describe

Ooh, and I can feel it,
Feel it, feel it, feel it

Way down where the music plays
Way down like a tidal wave
Way down where the fires blaze
Way down, down, way, way on down
Way on down

Hold me again,
As tight as you can
I need you so,
Baby, let’s go

Way down where it feels so good
Way down where I hoped it would
Way down where I never could
Way down, down, way, way on down
Way on down, way on down
