  • Hey DJ, hey sunset
    Hey full moon creeping up over them pines in the distance
    Hey summer breeze, hey two lane road
    I got a girl that means the world to me and if you wanna help me let her know

    Gimme something she can dance to
    Throw up her hands to
    Running through her hair falling down
    Gimme something that'll take her breath away
    And make her think that Heaven's right here right now
    Something that'll get those eyes looking at me like
    She's falling harder than the stars tonight
    Anything to turn the space that's in between us into nothing
    C'mon gimme something
    Yeah

    'Cause if it's the right song
    In just the right light
    That circle in the sky won't be the only thing getting high tonight
    Nah
    I don't need much
    But I'm counting on you
    To set the mood with a groove and a helluva view so I can make my move

    Gimme something she can dance to
    Throw up her hands to
    Running through her hair falling down
    Gimme something that'll take her breath away
    And make her think that Heaven's right here right now
    Something that'll get those eyes looking at me like
    She's falling harder than the stars tonight
    Anything to turn the space that's in between us into nothing
    C'mon gimme something, yeah
    Oh c'mon gimme something, yeah

    I did the picking up, the driving out
    The finding that spot nobody knows
    So c'mon, c'mon, don't let me down
    I don't wanna take her home

    Gimme something she can dance to
    Throw up her hands to
    Running through her hair falling down
    Gimme something that'll take her breath away
    And make her think that Heaven's right here right now
    Something that'll get those eyes looking at me like
    She's falling harder than the stars tonight
    Anything to turn the space that's in between us into nothing
    C'mon gimme something, yeah
    Oh c'mon gimme something, yeah
    C'mon, gimme something
    Gimme something
