  • You wanna get to know me
    You memorized the lines of my thighs
    I knew before you told me you'd get it right
    And you took the dark for granted
    And you love me like you promised your wife
    It's almost like you planned it in the daylight

    (Ooh, I can attain it)
    (Ooh, I can attain it)
    (Ooh, I can attain it)

    (Ooh, I can attain it)
    (Ooh, I can attain it)
    (Ooh, I can attain it)

    I like the way you say it
    Tell me the words you told me that day
    Maybe if I could believe it I could just stay
    'Cause I like the way you do it
    Yeah I like the way you move it baby show me the way
    I like the way you get it on the freeway

    And I wish I could change it
    And we're always gonna be contaminated
    And oh, I know what we need
    You start letting me go
    Our love is tainted

    You said they'd be against us
    I say, "You care too much what they say"
    You said, "Do me a favor, give me some faith"
    'Cause you promised me you'd do it
    You said, "Baby, let me prove it, look at me in the face
    This is the face of someone who loves you, babe"

    And I wish I could change it
    And we're always gonna be contaminated
    And oh, I know what we need
    You start letting me go
    Our love is tainted

    (You start letting me go)
    (You start letting me go)
    (Stay)
    (You start letting me go)
    (You start letting me go)
    (Stay)

    And I wish I could change it
    And we're always gonna be contaminated
    And oh, I know what we need
    You start letting me go
    Our love is tainted
    And I wish I could change it
    And we're always gonna be contaminated
    And oh, I know what we need
    You start letting me go
    ('Cause our love is tainted)

    (Ooh, I can attain it)
