Lyrics:

[2x]

I’m lost without you

Can’t help myself

How does it feel to know that I love you baby?

 

Tell me how you love me more

And how you think I’m sexy babe

That you don’t want nobody else

You don’t want this guy

You don’t want that guy

You wanna touch yourself when you see me

Tell me how you love my body

And how I make you feel babe

You wanna roll with me

You wanna hold with me

You wanna stay warm and get out of the cold with me

 

I just love to hear you say it

It makes a man feel good baby

Tell me you depend on me

I need to hear it

 

[2x]

I’m lost without you

Can’t help myself

How does it feel to know that I love you baby?

 

Baby you’re the perfect shape

Baby you’re the perfect weight

Treat me like my birthday

I want it this way

I want it that way

I want it

Tell me you don’t want me to stop (don’t stop)

Tell me it would break your heart

That you love me and all my dirty

You wanna roll with me

You wanna hold with me

You wanna make fires and get Norwegian wood with me

 

I just love to hear you say it

It makes a man feel good baby

 

[2x]

I’m lost without you

Can’t help myself

How does it feel to know that I love you baby?

 

Cause you will tell me every morning

Oh all right baby

Oh yeah

Oh baby

Oh darling

All right right

 

I’m lost without you!

Can’t help myself

How does it feel to know that i love you baby?

I’m lost without you

Can’t help myself

How does it feel to know that i love you baby?

 

Ooh yeah

Oh baby

Oh darlin’

All right right

Oh baby

Oh darlin’

Ooh ooh baby

All right right… yeah
