Yea yuh know
Only you
Only you
Only you can make me feel, just like a king
Love you give to me so real
Makes me give in

Your love -- keeps pulling me in,
If its a battle I'll fight for you,
I have to win
To prove to you my love is so deep within
Its even getting deeper
Since I reach prison

The chorus showcases the singer's longing for his lover to love him more, and for Babylon to release him. The second verse seems to be inquiring about when the lovers can see each other again.

Parole Franch-Anglais Ouais tu sais
Only you
Seul toi
Only you
Seul toi
Only you can make me feel, just like a king
Seul toi peux me faire sentir comme un roi
Love you give to me so real
L'amour que tu me donnes est si vrai
Makes me give in
Il me fait céder

Girl, just like magnet to steel
Miss, comme l'aimant avec l'acier
Your love keeps pulling me in
Ton amour m'attire
If its a battle I'll fight for you
Si c'est une bataille je combattrai pour toi
I have to win
Je dois gagner
To prove to you my love
Pour te prouver mon amour
So deep within
Tellement profond à l'intérieur
Its even getting deeper
Cela en devient encore plus profond
Since I reach prison
Puisque j'entre en prison
