Lyrics

One look and I'm done
one glance from your eyes and I'm captivated
The taste of your skin
The warmth of your hungry lips has
Me so taken and I
Love the way you can make me dance from miles away

When I'm with you I'm so sedated
I'm captivated by you

You're just like the wind 'cuz
everything moves away when you're around it

The sun is just like the sound of
your voice in the morning
When you light my world up and I
Love the way you can make me dance from miles away

When I'm with you I'm never jaded,
I'm captivated

Oh,
I'll never stop believing
in this crazy love we're leading

Oh, Sugar,
hold me closer,
make me sweeter,
I need ya,
I love you

So, please, show me that smile
make me laugh for just a little while
Then breathe me one breath I only need one to fill the emptiness

Love the way you can make me dance from miles away

It's been so long but now,
I've waited and I'm captivated
