you count 'em one, two, three
look so cute when you get that mad
you drain the life from me, and it feels oh so good

the looks you give are so contagious
the way we move is so outrageous
just let me in, wasting time, just let me in
lets make it right

stay up and get down sleeps just time
its been wasting time
so get down or get down
lets make it happen all night

you're moving close, my pulse is racing
wer'e getting close
yeah i can taste it
i've never done it quite like this
so slow it down now, just slow it down

the looks you give are so contagious
the way we move is so outrageous
just let me in, wasting time, just let me in

stay up and get down sleeps just time
its been wasting time
so get down or get down
lets make it happen all night

reach out touch someone
so catch me if you can
reach out touch someone, touch someone, touch me

reach out touch someone
so catch me if you can
reach out touch someone, touch someone, just touch

reach out touch someone
so catch me if you can
reach out touch someone, touch someone, touch ahhh

stay up and get down sleeps just time
its been wasting time. so get down or get down
lets make it happen all night

    General Commentcorrections:

    in the chorus, just like "kaityangst" said... it's "sleeps just time spent wasting time"
    also it's "so get down now get down"... it's "now" instead of "or"
    also it's "yeah, i can taste her"... "her" instead of "it"

    the lyrics posted are actually the demo version to this song.
    the part "reach out and touch somebody" is actually not on the LP version.

    well to me this song is absolutely about sex, i'll break down verse by verse.

    "you count 'em one, two, three, you look so cute when you get that mad" possibly he did something wrong and now she's all mad and it turns him on lol then the next line, "you drain the life from me and it feels oh, so good"..... when they "do it" lol you know it exhausts him but it's all pleasure...

    the hook could possibly be where they're at a party/club or something and she keeps giving him "looks" in which to him are contagious and the way they "dance" to him, is so outrageous and he knows what he wants, possibly also what she wants so he states "just let me in, we're wasting time"

    the chorus explains possibly how they left to go back to his/her place and maybe she's tired and wants to go to sleep but he tries to explain "sleeps just time spent wasting time", "so get down now get down, let's make it happen all night" is very self explanatory lol

    the second verse to me is where they start to initiate the process lol the lyrics are just so there, easy to understand

    great song to me personally, gotta' love the meaning

    General CommentYeah, I love this song too!!! Well, I think the meaning is pretty simple....like I think it's just about a guy who likes a girl, and he's really attracted to her, and he wants to keep going, but he also wants to slow down, because it's all happening so fast.

    Sorry for my vague choice of words :S :p
