Lyrics
Published by Northern Goody Two Tunes, Ltd./CAPAC - ASCAP

You take my breath away, it's not the things you do
But the way you do it, I knew it was gonna work out this way
It's beyond the point of pleasure, to the point of no return
I should know better, whatever, I guess I'm gonna live and learn

Gimme that thing called love, show me a thing about love
Gimme that thing called love, show me a thing about love
Reach out and touch me girl, I wanna tell you that it's right this time, this time

It's such a sweet surrender, I feel myself going under your spell, oh well
Right or wrong, baby go on, just have your way with me
I don't scare that easily, whatever you want, please go on
Whatever it takes, take it out on me, come on

Gimme that thing called love, show me a thing about love
Gimme that thing called love, show me a thing about love
Hold on, look my way, I'm turned on by the things you say
I won't forget about the night we had
I won't be sorry for the things I've said, this time

Reach out and touch me girl, I won't be sorry for the things I've said

It's satisfaction guaranteed, I won't pretend it'll always be this way
But at least I'm gonna have my day
Beyond this point of pleasure, to the point of no return
I should know better, whatever, I guess I'm gonna live and learn

Gimme that thing called love, show me a thing about love
Gimme that thing called love, show me a thing about love
Reach out and touch me girl, reach out and hold me girl
I won't forget about the nights we've had
I won't be sorry for the things I've said, this time
