  • The moon outside
    Too bright, those blinds
    Yeah, lets just keep 'em closed
    You know, my hands they know where to go
    To find your finger tips
    Trace 'em back to your lips, take you on a trip
    Flip that switch

    Make my world go black, hit me like a heart attack
    Knock me flat on my back, yeah
    Just keep doing that, that thing you're doing there
    Brush me with your hair, I swear
    I don't know how long that I can last
    Make my world go black, black
    Make my world go black, black

    Like your dress on the floor
    Yeah, the one you don't need anymore
    Black like a sky with no stars
    Just find me and fall into my arms

    And make my world go black, hit me like a heart attack
    Knock me flat on my back, yeah
    Just keep doing that, that thing you're doing there
    Brush me with your hair, I swear
    I don't know how long that I can last
    Make my world go black
    Make my world go black

    (Black, black)
    (Black, black)

    I don't wanna see a thing
    Baby, I just wanna feel your touch, feel your rush
    I don't wanna see a thing
    I just wanna feel your love

    Make my world go black, hit me like a heart attack
    Knock me flat on my back, yeah
    Just keep doing that, that thing you're doing there
    Brush me with your hair, I swear
    I don't know how long that I can last
    Make my world go black
    Make my world go black

    Make my world go (black)
    I don't wanna see a thing (black)
    I just wanna feel your touch, feel your rush
    (Black)
