Heat it all up

Burning my mind and my soul.
Don't go reelin' to the feeling in the back!

In the heat of our love
Don't need no help for us to make it
Gimme just enough to take us to the morning

She moves through the night
Controlling my mind and my soul
When you reach out for me
Yeah, and the feelin' is right
