  • When we met, it wasn't quite clear to me
    What you had in store was there for only me
    Silly, you know you took me by surprise
    Then I turned and looked, I saw that message in your eye

    There you were, I fell on the floor
    The way you move, girl, only made me want you more
    I did not know you had me hypnotized
    There's a movement of your body dancin' in my eyes

    I know I had to hold you and make you mine
    Don't want to control you just to have a good time
    In ecstasy when you're layin' down next to me
    Oh, no, no, ecstasy, yeah, when you're layin' down next to me

    I find it hard for me to concentrate
    If I don't make my move, girl, it might be too late
    I've got to make sure you don't get away
    After all you done, girl, to make me wanna stay

    All my life I've been searchin' for a star
    Now my search is over and here we are
    Livin' in ecstasy, yeah, when you lay down next to me, yeah
    Here in ecstasy, when you're layin' down next to me

    I wanna hold you and make you mine
    Don't want to control you just to have a good time
    Livin' in ecstasy, well, when you're layin' down next to me
    Ooh ooh wee, ecstasy, when you're layin' here with me
    uh-huh

    In this ecstasy when you are here with me, yeah
    Oh, it's ecstasy, Lord knows when you're next to me, yeah Writer/s: Ekundayo Paris, Nelson R. Pigford
