Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The galdem rush to feel the ill touch
Galdem ball and gal them a scream
They think ita love but a lust
That's why a bad gal beside is a must for I bust
She's the angel of me conscious yo yo yo

Never thought that I could feel something so strong
I wanna hold on to this moment before its gone
I wanna hold your body close its callin' to me
And when i look into your eyes I'm likin' what I see
Boy don't hold back from me
Just give me everything you got
I wonder I can keep
I know your gonna keep it hot

I catch a rush boy whenever we touch I go crazy
I'm feeling you baby
I dream like this boy whenever we kiss I can't take it
You know I can't fake it

Yo yo yo
Well I'm back with the boys and I knowin' that
Don't watch my face my gal you know I'm coming back
Most of mea gal them slide off easy like a thunderclap
When I see you from the back you know me need all a dat yo yo yo

Don't even know your name
But this feels so right
Its like I known you boy for all of my life
Don't need to say a word
We both understand
And my eyes are telling you
Catch me if you can
I'm falling faster now
You know you got me where you want
Too late I can't slow down
No way we're ever gonna stop

I catch a rush boy whenever we touch I go crazy
I'm feeling you baby
I dream like this boy whenever we kiss I can't take it
You know I can't fake it
You know I can't take it
You know I can't fake it, no, no

My girl turn it around and cut it out
And come a little close so you feel what I'm 'bout here
(No I can't take it)
(No I can't take it)
(No no)
My girl turn it around bring it near
Let me show you a thing dat a done ya career
I'm falling faster now
You know you got me where you want
Too late I can't slow down
No way we're ever gonna stop

I catch a rush boy whenever we touch I go crazy
I'm feeling you baby
I dream like this boy whenever we kiss I can't take it
You know I can't fake it





I catch a rush boy whenever we touch I go crazy
I'm feeling you baby
