  • You're in control
    Pressing pause on my heartbeat
    Someone stole all the air
    So I can't speak now
    I know the chase is on
    I feel as though
    My time has come

    How many times do I fly
    Through your headspace?
    Now it's speeding away
    From the safe place

    Yeah, your skin
    The touch, the kiss
    The rush, too much
    And here it comes

    When your lips touch mine
    It's the kiss of life
    I know
    I know that it's a little bit frightening
    We might as well be playing with lightning
    We touch like
    Like it's our first time
    Oh, oh
    I know that it's a little bit frightening
    We might as well be playing with lightning now

    Oh, oh
    Oh, oh

    Just you and me and the coats in the backroom
    Learning things they don't teach in the classroom
    Now, you're here
    I feel the fear
    But everything
    Is oh so clear

    I've been addicted to you
    Since the first hit
    Out of control like a surge of electric

    Yeah, your skin
    The touch, the kiss
    The rush, too much
    And here it comes

    When your lips touch mine
    It's the kiss of life
    I know
    I know that it's a little bit frightening
    We might as well be playing with lightning
    We touch like
    Like it's our first time
    Oh, oh
    I know that it's a little bit frightening
    We might as well be playing with lightning now

    Oh, oh
    Oh, oh
    Oh, oh
    Oh, oh

    Your skin, the touch
    The kiss, too much
    Your skin, the touch
    The kiss, the rush
    Your skin, the touch
    The kiss, too much
    The rush, the rush
    The rush, the rush

    When your lips touch mine
    It's the kiss of life
    I know
    I know that it's a little bit frightening
    We might as well be playing with lightning
    We touch like
    Like it's our first time
    Oh, oh
    I know that it's a little bit frightening
    We might as well be playing with lightning now
