  • I don't wanna mess this up
    Could it be too much to say I'm in?

    Deep end, swimming in my feelings
    I been here before, but it feels like I'm drowning
    Sinking am I overthinking?
    Tell me am I foolish to think you'd meet me here?

    Ohh-oh, I wanna do this again
    Ohh-oh

    I'm going down
    'Cause I know that it's you I see in my dreams
    I'm going down
    Let me drown over you living in my dream
    (In my dreams)

    I love the way you do it
    Don't stop, don't wanna lose it
    I love the way you do it to me (me)
    I love the way you do it (the way)
    Don't stop, don't wanna lose it (do it to me)
    I love the way you do it to me (I like the way that you do it to me)
    But

    I don't wanna mess this up
    Could it be too much to say I'm in?
    I just wanna know what's up
    Do you feel it? 'Cause I think I'm in (love)

    (Love)

    I'm finna take my time
    My mind, my rules
    This ain't no crime
    Making love to you
    Though you ain't said it's mine
    I have a hard time waiting for you, babe
    Like ooh, boy
    You, boy
    Got me where you want
    Just gotta say and it's on
    It's like ooh, boy
    Do you know you got me like
    Where do you go when you're alone?

    Ohh-oh, I wanna do this again
    Ohh-oh

    I'm going down
    'Cause I know that it's you I see in my dreams
    I'm going down
    Let me drown over you living in my dream
    (In my dreams)

    I love the way you do it
    Don't stop, don't wanna lose it
    I love the way you do it to me (I love it)
    I love the way you do it (the way)
    Don't stop, don't wanna lose it (do it to me)
    I love the way you do it to me (I like the way that you do it to me)
    But

    I don't wanna mess this up
    Could it be too much to say I'm in?
    I just wanna know what's up?
    Do you feel it? 'Cause I think I'm in love

    (Love)

    I guess it's all in my head until you let my body know
    'Cause everyone ain't you, babe
    Want nobody but you, babe
    So tell me what you gon' do, babe
    Not another love song
