Songtekst



Lost in a dream
Don't know which way to go, let me say
If you are all that you seem
Then, baby, I'm moving (Moving) way too slow

I've been a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my love caught
In the slammin' door
How about some information, please

Straight up, now tell me
Do you really want to love me forever? (Oh, oh, oh)
Or am I caught in a hit and run?

Straight up, now tell me
Is it gonna be you and me together? (Oh, oh, oh)
Or are you just having fun?

Time's standing still
Waiting for some small clue, now let me tell you
I keep getting chills
When I think your love is true

I've been a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door?
How about some information, please

Straight up, now tell me
Do you really want to love me forever? (Oh, oh, oh)
Or am I caught in a hit and run?

Straight up, now tell me
Is it gonna be you and me together? (Oh, oh, oh)
Or are you just having fun?

You are so hard to read
You play hide and seek
With your true intentions

If you're only playing games
I'll just have to say
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye

Do, do you love me?
Do, do you love me, baby?
Do, do you love me?
Do, do you love me, hey, baby

Do, do you love me?
Do, do you love me, baby?
Come on now, do, do you love me?
Do, do you love me?
Tell me, baby

I've been a fool before
Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door
Are you more than hot for me
Or am I a page in your history-book

I don't mean to make demands
But the word and the deed go hand in hand
How about some information, please (Please, please, please, please)

Straight up, now tell me (Tell me)
Straight up, now tell me (Tell me)
Straight up, now tell me (Tell me)
Straight up, now tell me
Straight up, now tell me

Straight up, now tell me
Do you really want to love me forever? (Oh, oh, oh)

Or am I caught in a hit and run?

Straight up, now tell me
Is it gonna be you and me together? (Oh, oh, oh)
Or are you just having fun?

Straight up, now tell me
Do you really want to love me forever? (Oh, oh, oh)
Or am I caught in a hit and run?

Straight up, now tell me
Is it gonna be you and me together? (Oh, oh, oh)
Or are you just having fun?
