Lyrics for Goapele – Play

[Verse 1:]
I wanna know what you wanna do
What if I can say there wasn’t any rules?
I wanna play, play around,
Tell me if you think that you can get down!
Cause this is what I’m dying for,
I mean, this is what I’m dying to do!

[Chorus:]
Come here baby, I’ll really will touch you
Listen, baby others don’t match when
I’m ready to play, I’m ready to play!
Come here baby, whisper in your ear,
Tell you how I’m about to make you feel
I’m ready to play, we can play this game, oh, baby!

[Verse 3:]
I wanna go, where you never been,
This is not what we’re trying to ..
Said you had a chance, but you really don’t know
But I think I can help what you’re looking for,
Cause this is what we’re living for
I mean, this is what we’re dying to do!

[Chorus:]
Come here baby, I’ll really will touch you
Listen, baby others don’t match when
I’m ready to play, I’m ready to play!
Come here baby, whisper in your ear,
Tell you how I’m about to make you feel
I’m ready to play, we can play this game, oh, baby, all day!

Listen you should know,
You should know
You’ll never be caught,
You’ll never be down…
