about

I admit that I can be a bit of a control freak sometimes and I'd like to think that I have things together, yet there's a part of me that wants to lose control and give in to love. Being with someone that just takes your breath away makes it feel okay to be a bit clumsy or silly. If skipping a beat makes me trip and fall, at least I know that I'll be falling for someone who's there to catch me!

lyrics

VERSE 1
I’m usually so on top of it (yeah yeah)
Never been known as a hit or miss (no no)
But the very first time that we locked eyes
It’s like you had me mesmerized

PRE
Now I can’t tell my left from my right
My shirt’s on backwards but that’s alright
Paid a five dollar coffee with a ten
And left the store with nothing in my hands

That’s the effect that you have on me
And when I see you my heart skips a beat
It lost its way but you knew the street
And thank goodness that you’re quick on your feet

HOOK
Don’t mind if I skip skip skip a beat
Skip skip skip a beat
Skip skip skip a beat
Just so you can bring it back to me

VERSE 2
Should have never looked in your direction (oh no)
'Cause your beauty only made a mess of me
And I can barely imagine speaking to you
And if I have found love, what would I do?

PRE
Now that I can't tell my left from my right
My shirt's on backwards, but that's alright
Five pounds for the my tea but I paid with a ten
And left the store with nothing in my hands

That’s the effect that you have on me
Oh when I see you my heart skips a beat
It lost its way but you knew the street
And thank goodness that you’re quick on your feet

HOOK
Don’t mind if I skip skip skip a beat
Skip skip skip a beat
Skip skip skip a beat
Just so you can bring it back to me
(x2)

BRIDGE
Something amazing happened
When I saw you
I damn near had a heart attack and
I'm trying to take it slow
Trying to remain cool
(x2)

PRE
That’s the effect that you have on me
Oh when I see you my heart skips a beat
It lost its way but you knew the street
And oh thank goodness that you’re quick on your feet

HOOK
Don’t mind if I skip skip skip a beat
Skip skip skip a beat
Skip skip skip a beat
Just so you can bring it back to me
(x2)
