I know you got a different picture in mind
Some dream world of different kind
I know this rhythm
We've been moving to is way too slow baby

And each time our bodies are supposed to meet
But I'm here still missing a beat
And when I look at you I see in your eyes
We're still dancing to a different tune

Take me to your dreaming place and open up my eyes
Let me see what it takes to be your lover in disguise
Show me how I do those things that make you want to stay
'Cause I'll go crazy if I don't find
The words I got to say, steal your heart away

Buy you diamonds, golden rings, baby
All kinds of the beautiful things
But that don't matter to a lover
With a restless heart, no, no, baby

You still want to wake up to a different scene
Some screen gem like the one in your dream
And leave me standing like a foolin' the wings
Still waiting for a part to play

You take me to that dreaming place and open up my eyes
Let me see what it takes to be your lover in disguise
Why don't you show me how I can do those things?
That make you want to stay, 'cause I'll go crazy if I don't find
The words I got to say, I wanna steal your heart away

I can't wait another day
I can't wait baby
I don't [Incomprehensible] waiting

And I know you think she's right for you
And she's in tune with what you do
She can touch you deep inside, where all your deepest feelings lie
But I got something you should know, before she starts to hurt you so
You can bet your life she's gonna hurt you

Maybe you think that it's alright, leave me waiting every night
Put me down in company in front of everyone we see
To take my loving when it's free and then you throw it back at me
Well baby, I just can't stand it

I can be the one for you, I'll make your dreams come true
And I can love you like she can, fancy clothes don't make no woman
Believe me, baby, I got what it takes to make you feel good
I can be the one for you and I can make your dreams come true
Believe me, baby, I got what it takes to make you feel good

Maybe you think a girl should be as perfect as a girl can be
To love you when you're feeling down
Miss you when you're not around, well I can't be that one for you
I can only be the one that loves you darling

[Incomprehensible]
Hey, what's this change of mind
I got what it takes, feeling right
