I'm exhausted, trying to catch my breath the morning' after
I hold my coffee with shaking hands and my world in disarray
Lost by the softness and the strength that's in her hands
I see her face and I can barely stand
But oh the sweet redemption every time she mentions that she wants me
Oh, that she needs me

Chorus:
Oh Maria your kisses knock me over
Make me drunk then leave me sober
They let me know that I'm a man
Maria, your touch it almost kills me
Then it turns around and heals me
I get lost and found again
In the arms of a woman that a mother gave the name, Maria

Tender power
The gift she gives me gets me through the day
Midnight hour
I reach across the bed where she lay
Then I look up and see the moon dance on her skin
My heart starts poundin' once again
It's a sweet intoxication, a powerful frustration
How I want her, oh, how I need her

Oh, Maria
Your kisses knock me over
Make me drunk then leave me sober
They let me know that I'm a man
Maria
Your touch, it almost kills me
Then it turns around and heals me
I get lost and found again
In the arms of a woman
In the arms of a woman that a mother
In the arms of a woman that a mother gave the name Maria

I'm exhausted
I'm still trying to catch my breath
Maria
Oh, maria
