Lyrics of Fuego

Take a dive
Into my eyes
Yeah the eyes of lioness
Feel the power
They ain’t lying

A little look
A little touch
You know the power of silence
Yeah keep it up keep it up

I was looking for some high high highs yeah
Till I got a doze of you
U got me pelican fly fly flyin’

Coz I’m way up and I ain’t comin’ down, keep taking me higher ah yeah ah yeah ah yeah yeah ah yeah ah yeah
Coz I’m burning up and I ain’t coolin’ down, yeah I got the the fire ah yeah ah yeah ah yeah yeah ah yeah ah yeah


Take me in
Take a breath
Ain’t no hidden agenda
What u see is what u get

Oh your love is like wild wild fire
U got me pelican fly fly flyin’
