Maria Lyrics

by Chris Cagle

I'm exhausted
Tryin' to catch my breath the morning after
Pour my coffee
With shakin' hands and my world in disarray

Lost in the softness and strength that's in her hands
I see her face and I can barely stand
But oh, the sweet redemption every time she mentions
That she wants me, oh, that she needs me, oh

Maria
Your kisses knock me over
Make me drunk and then leave me sober
They let me know that I'm a man

Maria
Your touch, it almost kills me
Then it turns around and heals me
I get lost and found again in the arms of a woman
That a mother gave the name, Maria

Tender power
The gift she gives me gets me through the day
Midnight hour
I reach across the bed where she lay

Then I look up and see the moon dance on her skin
My heart starts poundin' once again
It's a sweet intoxication, a powerful frustration
How I want her, oh, how I need her

Maria
Your kisses knock me over
Make me drunk and then leave me sober
They let me know that I'm a man

Maria
Your touch, it almost kills me
Then it turns around and heals me
I get lost and found again in the arms of a woman
That a mother gave the name, Maria

Maria
Your kisses knock me over
Make me drunk and then leave me sober
They let me know that I'm a man

Maria
Your touch, it almost kills me
Then it turns around and heals me
I get lost and found again in the arms of a woman
In the arms of a woman that a mother
In the arms of a woman that a mother gave the name, Maria

I'm exhausted
I'm still tryin' to catch my breath
Maria
Oh, Maria
