Charted: 40
  • If you could take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer
    If you could feel my heart beat now
    It would hit you like a sledgehammer

    I don't admit it
    I play it cool
    But every minute
    That I'm with you

    I feel the fever and I won't lie
    I break a sweat
    My body's telling
    All the secrets I ain't told you yet

    (Oh oh) I struggle to contain
    (Whoa oh) The love that's in my veins
    (Oh oh) And how it circulates (oh oh)

    If you could take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer (Oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh)
    If you could feel my heart beat now
    It would hit you like a sledgehammer (Oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh)

    You're taken over the beat of my body
    You just don't let up, don't let up
    You're taken over the beat of my body
    But you lift me up, lift me up
    If you take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer

    So close together
    So far apart
    You're turning me on
    And my fire's waitin' for your spark

    (Oh oh) I struggle to contain
    (Whoa oh) The love that's in my veins
    (Oh oh) And how it circulates (oh oh)

    If you could take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer (Oh oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh oh)
    If you could feel my heart beat now
    It would hit you like a sledgehammer (Oh oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh oh)

    You're taken over the beat of my body
    You just don't let up, don't let up
    You're taken over the beat of my body
    But you lift me up, lift me up
    If you take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh

    The truth is out
    No stopping now
    I'm getting closer
    I've had enough
    Undress my love
    I'm coming over

    If you take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer, oh
    And if you take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer, hammer, oh

    If you take my pulse

    If you could take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer (Oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh)
    If you could feel my heart beat now
    It would hit you like a sledgehammer (Oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh)

    You're taken over the beat of my body
    You just don't let up, don't let up
    You're taken over the beat of my body
    But you lift me up, lift me up
    If you take my pulse right now
    It would feel just like a sledgehammer

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh
