lyrics

Emotion, I turn to sand before I reach the ocean
And I wait a thousand years to feel your motion

I shut my heart in a little black box
Throw away the key and lock
Wrap it tight with a pretty pink bow
Ride me high like roshambo
Emotion, give me that sweet emotion

Emotion, like a newborn child crying for his mama's attention
Emotion, like a refugee free from a life of detention

I ride over dunes and fields
Camp at night with my flint and feels
Pack ‘em up at the break of dawn
Stamp out the fire and carry on
Emotion, would you give me that sweet emotion?
Emotion, would you give me that sweet emotion?

Emotion, like the sun goin' down the San Francisco skyline
Emotion, like the fog above the New York City highrise

I jump the horse, race up the stairs
And at the top unpack my wares
Gonna leave my heart at my true love's door
Gonna run till I can't run no more
Emotion, would you give me that sweet emotion?
Emotion, would you give me that sweet emotion?
