  • Girl, you remind me, of a daydream I can't escape
    I can beat the world, with you behind me
    My wine would be sweet if you were my grape

    And we'll make the most beautiful love that's ever made, (you know it)
    And I'll give you everything inside I never gave, (you know it)
    If this is your world then I guess that means I'm your slave, (you know it)
    Call yourself the master but you know you must behave, (you know it)

    I wonder why they say, (they say)
    The limit is the sky, (the sky),
    It seems to me, we need to be, whatever is that high (that high)
    Who says we need a plane, (plane)
    When we can use our minds, (our minds)
    It seems to be, we need to be, working on that tonight (tonight)

    Your aura, it's so shiny
    To find you didn't take that long
    You're like a note, that's in there hiding
    Subtle but special girl you make the song

    And the way you fix your hair and two-step that's insane, (you know it)
    And every time you smile at me ooh girl you're in my brain, (you know it)
    But this is your world so I guess that would be OK, (you know it)
    When you dance in front of me like that I can't debate, (you know it)
    Tell me one thing

    I wonder why they say, (they say)
    The limit is the sky, (the sky)
    It seems to me, we need to be, whatever is that high (that high)
    Who says we need a plane, (plane)
    When we can use our minds, (our minds)
    It seems to be, we need to be, working on that tonight (tonight)

    (Lift off) Let's see how far we can go, let's see how far we can go
    Let's see how far we can go, let's see how far we can go
    Let's see how far we can go, let's see how far we can go
    Let's see how far we can go, let's see how far we can go
    Lift off, lift off, lift off, lift off

    I wonder why they say, (they say)
    The limit is the sky, (the sky),
    It seems to me, we need to be, whatever is that high (that high)
    Who says we need a plane, (plane)
    When we can use our minds, (our minds)
    It seems to be, we need to be, working on that tonight (tonight) Writer/s: Pharrell Williams
