Backstreet Boys - Passionate Lyrics




I'm the type of person to get carried away
Been this way since I came out of the womb
I been obsessive, got that off of me
Yeah, and God knows I do not like to lose

And I want your love, I want your love
I'ma do whatever it takes
And I want your love, I want your love
I know I come on hard, there's no need to be alarmed
It's just I'm

Passionate
I can't help but I need to get my hands on all of it
Need to get my hands on all of it all, a-all
I'm passionate
I can't help but I need to get my hands on all of it
Need to get my hands on all of it all, a-all

I never listen to the voice in my head
You know, it's like I got no brakes in my car (I never listen to it)
I'm on a mission, gonna sleep when I'm dead
And it's impossible to stop when I start

And I want your love, I want your love
I'ma do whatever it takes
And I want your love, I want your love
I know I come on hard, there's no need to be alarmed
It's just I'm

Passionate
I can't help but I need to get my hands on all of it
Need to get my hands on all of it all, a-all
I'm passionate
I can't help but I need to get my hands on all of it
Need to get my hands on all of it all, a-all

Oh, I'm so passionate

All I want is everything
Too much adrenaline
And all I do is anything
But like a gentleman
Singin', all I want is everything
Too much adrenaline
And all I do is anything
But like a gentleman

Passionate
I can't help but I need to get my hands on all of it
Need to get my hands on all of it all, a-all
I'm passionate
I can't help but I need to get my hands on all of it
Need to get my hands on all of it all, a-all

Yeah
No, no
I know, know, I'm so passionate, oh
To the beat now, to the beat now

Passionate
I can't help but I need to get my hands on all of it
(La la la la la la la)
Need to get my hands on all of it all, a-all
(I'm so passionate, yeah)
I'm passionate
I can't help but I need to get my hands on all of it
(Come on, yeah, yeah)
Need to get my hands on all of it all, a-all
(I'm so passionate)

  13. Anael Dumah

    Desde España, una fan que siempre a sido incondicional. Me encanta esta canción de vuestro nuevo álbum. La verdad que no sabéis la alegría que me disteis hace unos años cuando vi que volviais los cinco. Porque los cinco sois únicos y el grupo no era igual solo con cuatro. Aunque seguía gustando y vuestras canciones. Besos desde canarias

  14. Sarah Keno

    They played the raunchy version of this song last night 😘😘

  15. Izabela Gil

  18. Carmengrace Puentes

    so gooood LIVE

  19. Mabel Xiomara Saravia Saravia

    why did you cut this song on the DNA world tour?:(

    The Secret History

    I agree. Very sad. 😔 My favorite song off the album and should be hit a single in the airwave. It's a great concert nevertheless. BSB did cramp 33 songs into a 2 hr concert which is super incredible. 😯💖 KTBSPA! We should petition to BSB to make it a single.

  20. tiago soares brito

    Where's this Song video clip? 😕

  21. So true

    Another awesome song!!

  22. LEONARDO Ferraz

    Please! Make a vídeo for this Song!

  23. Brandy Mundy

    This song has a seventies groove to it and I love the way they alternate pitch during the versus and chorus. Tastefully done.

  24. besttttt87

    love this!

  25. Aurora Austral

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  26. Mirella Katiane

    😍😍❤️❤️ i like this song!

  27. Lisa

    Can anyone else totally imagine the video for this song?

    Black and white video and the boys in those striped suits with an orchestra/band and choreography.  
    Btw if they have this as the video I will know they used this idea 😇😇😄

    iGaara19

    I love that concept as well!! 💖 I hope it becomes the next BSB's new single. Here is my fan made video using Nick Carter's 2015 DWTS. Check it out if you like: https://youtu.be/Hm_RFQNinBg

  28. Débora Santana

    I keep dancing

  29. digthewarmth

    The first line of this song makes me laugh every time. It makes me think of newborn Brian being carried away by nurses. It's so distracting and funny. I wonder if that was an intentional joke.

  30. Gabby Vergara

    I love this funcking song <3

  31. Mayur D

    Backstreet Boys have stood the test of time! with more than 2 decades of smash hits! this song needs to be released as a single as it will easily come out on top compared to the shitty commercial songs we have out now. I would love to see BSB on the forefront of pop music once again!

    Versatil Titan

    Be patient the time is now..but ur right this should be the one record that puts them on the fore front

  32. DaisyZappa23

    this is what it should be 100% of the time. People eat up that funky bass <3

  33. Kirsty Gardner

    Hearing this live (and all their other new songs) the other day was by far one of the best days of my life❤️

  34. Dawid Sciborowski

    I love it so much woooo

  35. Robert Olin

    I have been a fan for almost all of the 26 years they've been around. That said, there has EASILY been an album's worth of songs that they haven't released or turned into singles that should have been, and this song falls into that category. This song deserves a video to go along with it at the minimum.

  36. Vanessa Victoria

    I still think this song needs to be a single!!!

  37. Medina Sertovic

    Love it

  38. Romi Paez

  41. Jean-François Ernotte

    I like this music

  42. Mabel Xiomara Saravia Saravia

    why they don't give importance to this song? It's such a hit but they don't sing the full version at the DNA world tour, this song doesn't have a music video but the fandom still wishing that, plz give more importance to this f***ing beautiful song!!!

  43. Erin March

    Oooo that bass line!!!! 🥰

  44. Claúdia Silva

    Cadê vcs brasileiros?

  45. Claúdia Silva

    Amo essa música, quem também ama curti meu comentário!

  46. Nihara JK

    Seriously,this song should have more views...if you look at the comment section of a BTS songs you can literally see people screaming for streaming that song...but what about the BSB fans?Everyone would love a song like this...Come on BSBfans,try your best so that more people come to know about this song and DNA album...

  47. Juan Carlos PongoJ

  50. pb4ugo19

    Bsb fans hyped this song up so much that my expectations were high. I've listened & listened and I just think it's okay. Not my fav off of the DNA album.

  51. Lucia Maldonado Alvarez

    Es muy buena esta canción....single please.....

  52. WKA DESIGNS

    I love that Howie's getting leads on this track, we don't get enough of Howie in the forefront! :)

    Brandy Mundy

    That tenor is under used. The notes he hits. Just beautiful.

    Slim C

    Brian is singing lead on this track...

    Brandy Mundy

    @Slim C No There's a distinct difference between Howie and Brian's voice. Howie I believe sings second lead here.

    Slim C

    @Brandy Mundy Actually, Nick went live on Instagram during their concert a few months ago, when Nick, Howie and Brian were backstage during this part of the concert. Aj and Kevin were doing their wardrobe change into Passionate. Brian sings first then Nick sings second support on"I been obsessive, got that off of me
    Yeah, and God knows I do not like to lose" It's not Howie.

  68. heiane silva

    I loveeeeeeed 😍♥️♥️🇧🇷

  69. Marisa Ferreira

    Eu sempre admirei esses caras pelo talento, pela qualidade musical, mas essa música, sei lá não parece muito com o estilo deles. Brian... Love you

    guidofski

    Marisa Ferreira: entendo perfeitamente o que queres dizer, é tão diferente de tudo o que tinham feito antes... eu própria estranhei de início, mas ao ouvir mais duas ou três vezes fiquei viciada e rapidamente se tornou uma das minhas músicas preferidas do álbum. Se lhe deres mais uma oportunidade, pode ser que também sintas o mesmo... Citando um grande poeta do meu país, Fernando Pessoa, "primeiro estranha-se, depois entranha-se"! ;)

  70. jez mark

    love it its amazing
    !!!!!

  71. Brenda Smith

    Who is the lead voice here?

    The Secret History

    BSB has no actual lead singers since it differs, but if you have to pick, you do hear Nick Carter's vocal more than anyone else in this song. Especially he killed it in the high note which is usually given to Howie D. ✌

  72. Allie Doyle

  76. Carlos Ojeda

    The intro sounds like Justice - Civilization

  77. Vic Remington Cassells

    I love how they all sound together in this song, they are perfect! And that rhythm really makes me dance ❤️

    The Secret History

    You mean their harmonies. Lol. BSB is a perfect vocal harmony group. Check out their previous acapella or unreleased/hidden tracks they have A LOT. So good. *"Loving You", "Over Her", "Not No More", "Love Is" , "Rebel", "Love Knows I Love You"* , etc. (Highly Recommended)

    Vic Remington Cassells

    @The Secret History Harmonies, that meant!
     I know, I know ... I'm really a fan of them :)

  78. King Lucious RJK Lyon

    My jam seriously!

  79. Jessica Bruna

    Esperando a verlos esta noche en mi país en el #FestivaldeViña2019 sumamente feliz de tenerlos de vuelta y orgullosa de su éxito en este lado del mundo.

  80. Nathalie Bunster

    Amo esta canción , mi favorita , por favor que sea single y tenga un video 🙏

  81. Carmengrace Puentes

    Chances was deleted from this playlist 😑😐😣

  82. Maria Puentes

    This should be their next single. It makes me want to dance!!!

  83. CatzEyes93

    ok who is the open singer? I cannot make up my mind. Sometimes I think Brian, other times I think Howie.

    The Secret History

    me jacobs - Really? I said that. Brian did sing at the very beginning, before it changes to Nick harmonizing with Howie, or it could be with Brian (it gets tricky, but my money is on Howie. Could be all three. Lol. Have to see it live.) I'm not too sure with the next single. So far, there are 3 BSB's DNA singles: DGBMH, Chances, and No Place. I don't count their new "Breathe" as a single since it isn't a music video but a lyrics music video. It's like their "Permanent Stain" lyric music video, which is for their fans enjoyment. I hope their next 4th single is *Passionate* . 🙏Something fun and different from BSB that will be well received on the radio. Since I looking at all their prior music video from their prior albums it's usually 4 singles MV for each album, minus IAWLT album that only had two singles MV since it their own self funded indie album K-BAHN label (acronym of their first name initials). All that I do know, right now, is their new DNA 2019 world tour will be filmed by Rich + Tone Production (see their website) who directed their recent DGBMH music video and help choreograph the boys before since the directors are dancers who moved up the stepping ladder. I don't know if the filming is for just the fans to buy the dvd later, or will it be on a streaming site like Netflix or another documentary??? Who knows at the moment. We can only guess. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    me jacobs

    @The Secret History Thanks! I still think the first two lines are Brian with help. LOL Hey! I was wondering about a DVD. I'm a Bee Gees fan, and they put out a couple of DVDs of concerts that were shown on PBS and given as things you could get for membership drives They were also sold in the usual places. I think this would be a really great idea! (I think Passionate would be great as a single too. Give them something different again.)

    guidofski

    @The Secret History : ha, I KNEW I could hear Nick in there, lol. Yes, seeing it live is the only way to clear all our doubts.

    guidofski

    @me jacobs : no problem. And I'm delighted to find out you're a fellow Bee Gees fan. :)

    CatzEyes93

    @guidofski This group just got cooler!

  84. Milly Pico Pico

    The beginning sounds like No good advice bye Girls Aloud!. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNeO5a5tM4s

  85. LEONARDO Ferraz

    Please! Make a vídeo for this song!!! Come to Brazil to record a video of this Song!

  86. LEONARDO Ferraz

    Por favor!!!! Essa música merece um clipe urgente!!!

  87. Allie Doyle

    KEVIN LISTEN TO DNA AND I ONLY HEAR UR VOICE A LIL ON EACH SONG

    KEVIN U HAVE TO LET UR VOICE BE
    HEARD COME ON CUTIE COME OUT OF UR SHY SHELL

    LET PEOPLE KNOW THE REAL KEVIN

    KEVIN THE MAN I KNOW U CAN SPEAK UR MIND I HAVE FAITH IN
    YOU

    COME ON KEVIN AT LEAST DO IT FOR
    UR NUMBER ONE FAN

    OK :) LUV U KEVY

  88. Maria Julia

    🤗💛

  89. Reny Yoon

    This song is experimental for BSB and the experiment is truly successful.

  90. Victoria Lynn

    I couldn't help it... I am an "Outlander" fan of Jamie and Claire, and an even BIGGER fan of this song. So I threw them together for some hawt sauce! https://youtu.be/H_GBr0WvOWQ

  91. Sue Falk

    Love this song but you know someone will come out and say it is abusive to women!! The only thing that saves it is Nicks verse saying “like a gentleman!!”

    guidofski

    Warning : long comment! Sue Falk: you're absolutely right as people are offended by everything these days. Your comment is actually very timely. While I was looking for DNA reviews, I stumbled upon an idiot in some blog saying that it was nothing but creepy that the Backstreet Boys would sing such a song ("Passionate") when Nick had so recently been accused of rape - not only that, he downright called him a disgusting rapist! This creature then proceeded to distort the lyrics of every single song that had the slightest sexual connotation to illustrate how disgusting Nick was to be singing that after such a scandal. A few people in the comments came in Nick's defense, showing him that the woman who accused him was unbalanced, contradicted herself all the time and was nothing but a gold-digger, and that he wasn't charged. This guy obviously has some deep-rooted hate for the band and Nick in particular as his speech was nothing other than pure poison towards them. I was seriously disturbed reading that but the sad part is that the majority of people there were actually backing him up and saying things like "The Backstreet Boys have always been creepy, why did it take people so long to see that?" I had NO idea some people had this level of hate for BSB (it's one thing to dislike a band or artist but finding this was shocking, to say the least).

    Sue Falk

    guidofski Nick can get any women he wants and doesn’t have to rape anyone. Like you said it was just someone wanting money. People are all about starting trouble these days. It’s sad.

    guidofski

    Sue Falk: you are SO right. To be honest, the only reason that prevented me from posting a comment was realizing these were sick, frustrated people (mostly men) whose former girlfriends or unrequited crushes probably had a thing for Nick, lol, and this was their way of venting.

  92. BouncyTrouncy

    I'll be devastated if this doesn't become a single. Reminds me of "BO$$" by Fifth Harmony.
