Heart and soul


{aah-aah etc.}

if you’re pretending
for a reason I can’t see
tell me now and go
for I really need to know

if I am giving
and all you want is to steal

{aah behind:} tell me now and go
for {ooh behind:} I want to give my heart and soul

{ooh behind:} heart and soul
I want to {ooh behind:} give it all
I’ll give you {ooh behind:} more than you’ve
ever {ooh behind:} had before

{ooh behind:} if there is someone in your past
for {ooh behind:} whom I am just a substitute

tell me now {now} and go
for I want to give my heart and soul

heart and soul
I want to give it all
I’ll give you more than you’ve
ever had before

heart and soul
I want to give it all
I’ll give you more than you’ve
ever had before
aah-hahh
aah-ahh
heart and soul
