Have U ever been so lonely
That U felt like U were the only 1 n this world?
Have U ever wanted 2 play with someone so much
U'd take any 1 boy or girl?

Anna Stesia come 2 me, talk 2 me, ravish me, liberate my mind
Tell me what U think of me, praise me, craze me out this space and time

Between white and black, night and day
Black night seemed like the only way
So I danced
Music late, nothin' great, no way 2 differentiate
I took a chance
Gregory looks just like a ghost
And then a beautiful girl the most wets her lips 2 say
"Mmmm, we could live 4 a little while if U could just learn 2 smile
U and I could fly away, fly away"

Oh Anna Stesia come 2 me, talk 2 me, ravish me, liberate my mind
Tell me what U think of me, praise me, craze me out this space and time

Maybe, maybe, maybe I could learn 2 love
I mean the right way, I mean the only way
Perhaps U could show me, baby
Oh
Ahh!

Anna Stesia come 2 me, talk 2 me, ravish me, liberate my mind

Maybe, maybe, maybe I could learn 2 love
Ah, if I was just closer 2 somethin' (Closer)
Closer 2 ur higher self? I don't know
Closer 2 heaven? Maybe
Closer 2 God...

Save me Jesus, I've been a fool
How could I 4get that U r the rule
U r my God, I am Ur child
From now on, 4 U, I shall b wild
I shall b quick, I shall b strong
I'll tell Ur story no matter how long
No matter how... (No matter...)
Ow!
We're just a play n Ur master plan
Now, my Lord, I understand
I understand

Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above
Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above

Anna Stesia come 2 me, talk 2 me (Love is God, God is love)
Ravish me, liberate my mind (Girls and boys love God above)
Tell me what U think of me, praise me (Love is God, God is love)
Craze me out this space and time (Girls and boys love God above)

Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above {repeat}
