  • Wake me up with laughter
    Wrap me in your arms
    This ain't no morning after
    Never been so warm
    It didn't take so long
    For us to feel this way
    Can a good thing last
    Longer than a day?

    (chorus)

    Where do we take it now
    Now that we caught fire?
    Will something greater grow
    Out of this desire?
    Should I drop my guard
    At the risk of being used?
    But the way you do those things to me
    How can I refuse?

    I could get addicted
    To your energy
    The way you take me over
    Mmmm, keeps pulling on me
    Our hearts beat together
    Our timing is the same
    Can I trust my feelings
    Save myself the pain?

    (chorus)

    Where do we take it now
    Now that we caught fire?
    Will something greater grow
    Out of this desire?
    Should I drop my guard
    At the risk of being used?
    But the way you do those things to me
    How can I refuse?

    We could share the mystery
    Spare ourselves the misery
    Discover it again every day
    We could take love all the way

    (chorus)

    Where do we take it now
    Now that we caught fire?
    Will something greater grow
    Out of this desire?
    Should I drop my guard
    At the risk of being used?
    But the way you do those things to me
    How can I refuse?

    (guitar solo)

    (How can I refuse you?)

    (How can I refuse you?)

    (How can I refuse you?)
