Contact Contact
You've been avoiding me
I never see ya shine
You claim you want my love
If you want to feel the thrill of my touch

Why you fight it won't you try it
Turn me on and see
You gotta move in time
Here I am
You gotta act untamed
So grab my hand, SLAM!
I hate to sound aggressive
Cut the formalities
If you really want my love
Don't make me wait too long

Worthless chatter just don't matter
Come get next to me
Hey boy,
So we can make that contact

Why you fight it won't you try it
Turn me on and see
