She Rocked My World

Intro

...oh, oh, alright...yeah..

Verse 1

I still remember that night when she first caught my eye
With legs so long and eyes so dark she took me by surprise
With a look like fire she made me turn away
I should have known right then could be my final day
But, I had no choice, I just had to stay
Cause, she was beautiful and dangerous, and

Chorus

SHE ROCKED MY WORLD, shook me to my soul
Left my heart on fire burnin' out of control
While my eyes turned cold
I could not let her go
And SHE ROCKED MY WORLD

Verse 2

Well, I knew right then, this could be my final night
A dead man walkin' on a fine thin line, there was no wrong or right
As she pulled me in I tried to tell her no
But, her voice in my ear just would not let me go
Knew that in the end I would be alone
She had hair of gold, but a heart of stone, and

Chorus

SHE ROCKED MY WORLD, shook me to my soul
Left my heart on fire burnin' out of control
While my eyes turned cold
I could not let her go
And SHE ROCKED MY WORLD, (INST)...yes she did...

Bridge

I shouldn't be with her, but, I can't turn away
The risk of discovery, the thrill and the play
The danger excites us, I beg her to stay
But, then she was gone, nothing more I could say......

Verse 3

Now, it's been five long years since that fatefull night
The taste of her body haunts my memory, it's so hard to fight
I keep reaching for her, but, she's not there
I remember her touch and the smell of her hair
Every woman I see just keeps reminding me
How she stopped my life for a moment in time,..and

Chorus

SHE ROCKED MY WORLD, shook me to my soul
Left my heart on fire burnin' out of control
While my eyes turned cold 
Can't let her memory go

Outro

Cause SHE ROCKED MY WORLD, shook my soul, yeah, uh, huh..
SHE ROCKED MY WORLD, just can't let her go
Shook me to my soul, yeah...
SHE ROCKED MY WORLD, rock me, baby, uh, huh...
Rock me, baby, yeah, alright....
