“Kick” lyrics

Via AZ Lyrics

You’re in my head again
And I know where it’s goin’
I know I’m gonna need
Another taste of your poison

You’re the pulse to my motor
My electric desire
You’re my star blazed rhythm
Let me dance in your fire

And I just can’t stop it
All night everyday
And I just can’t stop it
And I love it that way

I don’t wanna kick kick
Kick your habit
‘Cos you never quit quit
I gotta have it
I don’t wanna kick kick
Kick your habit
‘Cos you never quit quit
I gotta have it

The lyrics continue:

Na na na na, na na na, na na na
So won’t you gimme some more
I said
Na na na na, na na na, na na na
So won’t you gimme some more
Ah kick it

You’re racing through my brain
Like a bolt of white lightnin’
And I can’t sleep it off
‘Cos your love’s always strikin’

You’re the tonic to my thirst
Sweet nectar of sin
I keep runnin’ away
But you keep draggin’ me in

And I just can’t stop it
All night everyday
And I just can’t stop it
And I love it that way

I don’t wanna kick kick
Kick your habit
‘Cos you never quit quit
I gotta have it
I don’t wanna kick kick
Kick your habit
‘Cos you never quit quit
I gotta have it

Na na na na, na na na, na na na
So won’t you gimme some more
I said
Na na na na, na na na, na na na
So won’t you gimme some more
Ah kick it

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

I don’t wanna kick kick
Kick your habit
‘Cos you never quit quit
I gotta have it
I don’t wanna kick kick
Kick your habit
‘Cos you never quit quit
I gotta have it

Na na na na, na na na, na na na
So won’t you gimme some more
I said
Na na na na, na na na, na na na
So won’t you gimme some more
Ah kick it
