I guess I forgotten to turn my phoneOff I'm outside my comfort zoneI'm tired of being lonelyTam-tara-ramNobody gonna like this, noOk, I don’t like these empty wordsI'll go even if it really hurtsIt's making me strongerTam-tara-ramI know it's gonna be...
Uuuuuh what should I doIt's up to you, karmaUuuuuh I wish I knewGive me a sign, karmaJust to remind youI don't give upI won't give up noI'll always try!
Yes, you gonna like itYes, you gonna like itLet me in your heartYes, you gonna like itYes, you gonna like itLet's break the rulesYes, you gonna like itYes, you gonna like itI'll share what I've gotYes, you gonna like itYes, you gonna like itBaby repeat my moves
It feels crazy and a little wildI know what is wrong and what is rightIt's making me wiserTam-tara-ramThe universe is ours nowOk, put your favourite sneakers on And show your emotions on the floorAdd hashtag to find yaTam-tara-ramI know it's gonna be...
Uuuuuh what should I doIt's up to you, karmaUuuuuh I wish I knewGive me a sign, karmaJust to remind youI don't give upI won't give up noI'll always try!
Yes, you gonna like itYes, you gonna like itLet me in your heartYes, you gonna like itYes, you gonna like itLet's break the rulesYes, you gonna like itYes, you gonna like itI'll share what I've gotYes, you gonna like itYes, you gonna like itBaby repeat my moves
I feel the flow of energyI should let go mistakes of meI feel the flow of energy…And you go with me, baby
