Yamin, Elliott - Self Control Lyrics

Well, let me tell you, girl
Every since the day that we met
I never have the second guess
Of a single regret

Now about the way that you're making me feel
Well, alright
I see you move, see your body groove
No, I just got cold

Baby, what you're doing to me
My body is burning in the third degree
Well, alright

You make me feel like I'm gonna lose it
You make me feel like I'm gonna lose it
You make me feel like I'm gonna lose all of my self control
Well, alright

I'm tired of wasting time
Going now and chasing that
Your body so fine

Got one question on my mind
I wanna know how it feels to be mine
Yes, I do

I gotta tell you, baby
I've been around the world
Seeing a lot of different girls
Ain't nobody quite like you

Girl, I think I always knew
Ohh, I just can't confront the truth
Ohh, yaa

You make me feel like I'm gonna lose it
You make me feel like I'm gonna lose it
You make me feel like I'm gonna lose all of my self control
Well, alright

    +Wolfsong420 Actually his new album is "As Time Goes By", a japan exclusive. It's really good Youtube "What Can I do Right" I freaking love the song!!! I'm still waiting for a U.S. release of his new album because it's really good!

    Elliott great music.  This man is so consistently good.  Loved listening to him ever since he nailed Moody's mood for love.Hope you find more success in the future.  I still want to hear the music.

    Fantastic song and Elliott's voice is the ULTIMATE!   He is THE BEST male vocalist ever!  Just can't stop listening to all of his music!!!  Once you've heard the BEST, you can just skip the rest!  ;)  I truly mean that.  Looking forward to his 4th album!  Y E S !!!
