Hey, what am I doin'
Over here late at night on the sofa?
Kissin' and touchin', whisperin' in my ear, got me breathin'
Marvin Gaye in the background singin', it ain't helpin'

Now in this moment candles burnin', oh, it's so easy
Got me compromisin' with my sexuality
And I know that you and I have got a real good thing
But when I pause, think it over, it ain't right, gotta tell ya

I can't give it up
Shoulda never started, now we gotta stop
But one day I'ma put it on ya
So you better get ready for me

I can't give it up
We started a fire, gotta blow it out
But one day I'ma put it on ya
So you better get ready for me

Boy, what was I thinkin'
When I move like that on your body, bump and grindin'
Can't stop, now got you breathin'
And you ain't in the mood for teasin', heaven help me

And when the moment candles burnin', oh, it's so easy
Got me compromisin' with my sexuality
And I know that you and I have got a real good thing
But when I pause, think it over, it ain't right, gotta tell ya

I can't give it up
Shoulda never started, now we gotta stop
But one day I'ma put it on ya
So you better get ready for me

I can't give it up
We started a fire, gotta blow it out
But one day I'ma put it on ya
So you better get ready

And you should know
This is really hard for me
'Cause when I'm with you, boy
I wanna give you everything

But there's much more
Than a night of ecstasy
I need commitment
With a diamond
Then I'm yours to be your fantasy

I can't give it up
I will be your fantasy
Ohh
I can't

I can't give it up
Shoulda never started, now we gotta stop
But one day I'ma put it on ya
So you better get ready for me

I can't give it up
We started a fire, gotta blow it out
But one day I'ma put it on ya
So you better get ready for me

I can't give it up
Shoulda never started, now we gotta stop
But one day I'ma put it on ya
So you better get ready for me

I can't give it up
We started a fire, gotta blow it out
But one day I'ma put it on ya
So you better get ready for me
