Lived my life and walked it alone
All my time and my heart was my own, for so long
I held the key to everything I'd need
Every dream, so sure that I'd succeed
'Cause I was strong, so strong
I swear that it was true, till the day that I found you
Come to me, breakin' me, showin' me no mercy
What have ya done to me, baby

CHORUS
Look where you are, here in my arms
Filling my heart with your love
But I can't get close enough to you
I've got no control
You shake my soul when we touch
Still I can't get close enough to you

Time goes by and it grows stronger still
With a smile I surrender my will, I'm on my knees
Passion's taken me so far across the line
All power of reason is no longer mine
I'm just waitin' to please
What else can I do, I'm forever wantin' you
Time goes by and it grows stronger still
With a smile I surrender my will, I'm on my knees
Come to me, breakin' me, showin' me no mercy
What have you done to me

CHORUS
BRIDGE
Baby, you're the last thing that I had planned
Got me livin' in the palm of your hand
The more I have of you the less I understand
How ya give me so much
And I just never get enough
Can't get close enough, baby

CHORUS #2
Look where you are, here in my arms
Filling my heart with your love
But I can't get close enough to you
God only knows
You shake my soul when we touch
Still I can't get close enough to you

Come to me, breakin' me, showin' me no mercy
Filling my heart with your love
Still I can't get close enough to you
God only knows
You shake my soul when we touch
Can't get close enough to you
Can't get close enough to you, baby
Here in my arms
