They say that love often passes in a second
And you never can catch it up
So I'm hanging on to you as though eternity beckoned
But it's clear that the match is rough

Common sense 'd tell me not to try 'n continue
But I'm after a piece of that diamond in you
So keep an eye open, my spirit ain't broken

Your love's so incredible
Your body so edible
You give me an overdose of love
Just a little is a enough

I'm connoisseur of Champagne, cognac
The perfume nearly beats the taste
I eat an oyster and I feel the contact
But more than one would be a waste

Some people want an endless line that's true
But all I have's a little time with you
A smile sets me reeling, a kiss feels like stealing

Your love is like heroin
This addict is mellowing
I can't pretend that I'm tough
Just a little is enough

Just like a sailor heading into the seas
There's a gale blowing in my face
The high winds scare me but I need the breeze
And I can't head for any other place

Life would seem so easy on the other tack
But even a hurricane won't turn me back
You might be an island on the distant horizon

But the little I see
Looks like heaven to me
I don't care if the ocean gets rough
Just a little is enough

Common sense 'd tell me not to try and continue
But I'm after a piece of that diamond in you
So keep an eye open, my spirit ain't broken

Your love's so incredible
Your body so edible
You give me an overdose of love
A little is enough
