Protect My Heart Lyrics

by Kelis

I gotta protect my heart
I gotta protect my heart

You were the heart of the spot
But you wouldn't tell me your name
You were like
Girl you ready or not
To dance the entire night away

You were like
Let me hold you girl, hold you girl
You were sayin'
Let me touch you girl
You were sayin'
Let me squeeze you girl, squeeze you girl
You taught me up
Let me, you girl

So when I first got here I knew that already
I gotta protect my heart
Then you come change things I knew that someone would flip it
I gotta protect my heart

The room is oh so hot
If you want move then move out of the way
I'm givin' it all I got
And at the same time tryin' to maintain

You were like
Let me hold you girl, hold you girl
You were sayin'
Let me touch you girl
You were sayin'
Let me squeeze you girl, squeeze you girl
You taught me up
Let me, you girl

So when I first got here I knew that already
I gotta protect my heart
Then you come change things I knew that someone would flip it
I gotta protect my heart
Never been touched by the way someone moves and that scares me
I gotta protect my heart
Cupid knew that you were comin', he should have prepared me
I gotta protect my heart

I just need ta
I walked away from the floor
I could feel myself reversing
And if I gave it before
See I guess that's caught up and when

You were like
Let me hold you girl, hold you girl
You were sayin'
Let me touch you girl
You were sayin'
Let me squeeze you girl, squeeze you girl
You taught me up
Let me you girl

So when I first got here I knew already
I gotta protect my heart
And then you come change things I knew that someone would flip it
I gotta protect my heart
Never been touched by the way someone moves and that scares me
I gotta protect my heart
Cupid knew, you were comin', he should've prepared me
I gotta protect my heart

Break it down
So when I first got here I knew that already
I gotta protect my heart
And then you come change things I knew that some would flip it
I gotta protect my heart

Here we go
I gotta protect my heart
I gotta protect my heart
