So long have we known each other
So little do we know
Sometimes I feel like strangers
The real us we seldom do show

Desire, it covers our faces
It happens n curious places
Ur body, it covers my tower
Ecstasy is ours

Dream of a physical evening
I long 4 a night within U
U're saving ur love 4 some soldier
Who'd much rather die than stay by ur side

If U only knew desire, it covers our faces
It happens n curious places
Ur body, it covers my tower
Ecstasy is ours

A ghost from ur past prevents us from knowing the pleasures of love
What must I do 2 convince U?
Isn't the expression on my complexion enough?

Don't tell me U have conflicting emotions
It's written all over ur face
Come my love, cover my tower
Ecstasy is ours

So long have we known each other
So little do we know

Let me show U desire, it covers our faces
It happens n curious places
Ur body, it covers my tower
Ecstasy is ours
Desire, it covers our faces
It happens n curious places
Ur body, it covers my tower
Ecstasy is ours
Desire, it covers our faces
It happens n curious places
Ur body, it covers my tower
Ecstasy is ours
