Toxic
Britney Spears Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Baby, can't you see?
I'm calling
A guy like you should wear a warning
It's dangerous
I'm falling

There's no escape
I can't wait
I need a hit
Baby, give me it
You're dangerous
I'm loving it

Too high
Can't come down
Losin' my head
Spinnin' 'round and 'round
Do you feel me now?

With a taste of your lips
I'm on a ride
You're toxic I'm slippin' under
With a taste of a poison paradise

I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic?
And I love what you do
Don't you know that you're toxic?

It's getting late
To give you up
I took a sip
From my devil's cup
Slowly, it's taking over me

Too high
Can't come down
It's in the air and it's all around
Can you feel me now?

With a taste of your lips
I'm on a ride
You're toxic I'm slippin' under
With a taste of a poison paradise

I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic?
And I love what you do
Don't you know that you're toxic?
Don't you know that you're toxic?

(Oh, oh)
(Oh, oh)

Taste of your lips
I'm on a ride
You're toxic I'm slippin' under
With a taste of a poison paradise

I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic?

With the taste of your lips
I'm on a ride
You're toxic I'm slippin' under (toxic)
With a taste of the poison paradise

I'm addicted to you
Don't you know that you're toxic?

Intoxicate me now
With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now
I think I'm ready now

Intoxicate me now




With your lovin' now
I think I'm ready now

As a kid that didn't understand any English, I used to think this was called 'Taxi'

For the people that are asking, I'm Dutch. The word "taxi" was the only thing I heard in that entire song that sounded like a word I knew back then.
