  • I knew you were
    You were gonna come to me
    And here you are
    But you better choose carefully
    'Cause I'm capable of anything
    Of anything and everything

    Make me your Aphrodite
    Make me your one and only
    But don't make me your enemy, your enemy, your enemy

    So you wanna play with magic
    Boy, you should know whatcha falling for
    Baby do you dare to do this
    'Cause I'm coming atcha like a dark horse

    Are you ready for, ready for
    A perfect storm, a perfect storm
    'Cause once you're mine, once you're mine
    There's no going back

    Mark my words
    This love will make you levitate
    Like a bird
    Like a bird without a cage
    But down to earth
    If you choose to walk away, don't walk away

    It's in the palm of your hand now baby
    It's a yes or no, no maybe
    So just be sure before you give it up to me
    Up to me, give it up to me

    So you wanna play with magic
    Boy, you should know whatcha falling for
    Baby do you dare to do this
    'Cause I'm coming atcha like a dark horse
    Are you ready for, ready for
    A perfect storm, a perfect storm
    'Cause once you're mine, once you're mine
    There's no going back

    She's a beast
    I call her Karma
    She eat your heart out
    Like Jeffrey Dahmer
    Be careful
    Try not to lead her on
    Shawty's heart was on steroids
    'Cause her love was so strong

    You may fall in love
    When you meet her
    If you get the chance you better keep her
    She's sweet as pie, but if you break her heart
    She'll turn cold as a freezer
    That fairy tale ending with a knight in shining armor
    She can be my Sleeping Beauty
    I'm gon' put her in a coma

    Woo! Damn I think I love her
    Shawty so bad
    I'm sprung and I don't care
    She got me like a roller coaster
    Turn the bedroom into a fair
    Her love is like a drug
    I was tryna hit it and quit it
    But lil' mama so dope
    I messed around and got addicted

    So you wanna play with magic
    Boy, you should know whatcha falling for
    Baby do you dare to do this
    'Cause I'm coming atcha like a dark horse
    Are you ready for, ready for
    A perfect storm, a perfect storm
    'Cause once you're mine, once you're mine
    There's no going backWriter/s: Lukasz Gottwald, Jordan Houston, Sarah Hudson, Martin Max, Katy Perry, Henry Russell Walter
