Make You Believe



Well I can't go to sleep because you're on my mind
I've had one beer, but I still can't unwind

Anxious and happy, and what do you know?
She's gonna cut to the chase
She's gonna tear off her clothes
When she looks at me with those devious eyes
I know something's gonna happen
I'll be sleepless tonight
I'll hold you close enough to make it feel like a dream
I'll lick your wounds like a dog
I'm gonna make you believe
That you're my religion, my reality

Playful and chatty, you don't even know
She flirts like the devil
She's ready to go
When she tilts her head with her beautiful smile
I know I gotta do something
I'm gonna be here a while
I'll hold you close enough to make it feel like a dream
I'll lick your wounds like a dog
I'm gonna make you believe
That you're my religion, my reality

Well I've got a free hand and so do you
What do you suppose that we should do?
As we walk side by side
I'll tell you what
I wanna reach over
No, I wanna lean forward
I wanna kiss and collide

Well I can't go to sleep because you're on my mind
I've had one beer, but I still can't unwind
I'll hold you close enough to make it feel like a dream
I'll lick your wounds like a dog
I'm gonna make you believe
That you're my religion, my reality
