This Side Of Me
Savage Garden Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I want to move in time with you
I want to breathe in rhyme with you
I want to feel the deepest kiss
And I want to know you feel like this

This one time, one time
Let my body do what it feels
This one time one time
Let this fantasy become real
'Cause I am not afraid to let you see this side of me

I want to feel your hand in mine
I want to feel that rush in my spine
I want to wear the scent of you
And do all the things you want me to

So baby this one time, one time
Let my body do what it feels
This one time one time
Let this fantasy become real
'Cause I am not afraid to let you see this side of me

I feel the danger of separation
I want to take your invitation
Separation, it's all around
I need this side of me

I want to move in time with you
And I want to breathe in rhyme with you
I want to stage my glows in sin
And in the dark I want to find that golden glow within

For this one time, one time
Let my body do what it feels
This one time one time
Let this fantasy become real




'Cause I am not afraid to let you see this side of me
No I am not afraid to let you see this side of me
