Milk & Honey Lyrics

If we had a place to go
If we had somewhere to be
Can somebody let it go
Here's your chance so let it be
I don't wanna spell it out
It's between the lines just read
How the story ends you'll find
Rock me to sleepIt'll be like milk and honey
Baby I can tell you want me
Ooh I can feel your heartbeat
And the feelings coming over me
Just lay back, relax, let me blow your mind
Lets take our time
Like honey it feels so warm insideNo matter the day
Your losing the night
No matter the hour
I'm telling you now
Just follow my lead
I'll open like a flower
Honey by the nectar sweet
From the ocean so deep
On the shores I'll hope we'll meet
And fit together perfectJust like milk and honey
Baby I can tell you want me
Ooh I can hear your heartbeat
And the feelings coming over me
Just lay back, relax,boy you blow my mind
Lets take our time
Like honey it feels so warm insideI don't want the feeling to leave
I'm killin' 'em softly
Never had honey so sweet
Now that you got me
Just pull me closer in
Ooh slowly
You give me all I needJust like milk and honey
Baby I can tell you want me
Ooh I can feel your heartbeat
And the feelings coming over me
Just lay back, relax, boy you blow my mind
Lets take our time
Like honey it feels so warm insideJust lay back, relax, let me blow your mind
Like honey it feels so warm insideOhh lets take our time
