You fell out of the clear blue sky
To the darkness below
The smell of your flesh excites me
My blood starts to flow, so help me God

You burst in in a blaze of light
You unzippered the dark
One kiss took my breath away
One look lights up the stars

And it's one hit to the body
It comes straight from the heart
One hit to the body (One voice calls out my name)
It sure went straight to the mark (so help me God)

One more from the body
One more straight from the heart

Yeah

It's one shot when you love me
One shot when you leave
I don't need no security
I just need me some peace

One punch and you knocked me down
You tore my defenses apart
One round took me out of the game
You did me some permanent harm

It took just one hit
You took just one hit
It ain't enough for me
It's hurting me, baby

Oh your love is just sweet addiction
I can't clean you out of my veins
It's a life long addiction
That has damaged my brain

It took just one hit to the body
To tear my defenses apart
One hit to the body
It sure went straight to the mark

One hit to the body...
It comes straight from the heart

That's all it took
Just one hit straight from the heart
So help me, so help me, so help me God
So help me, so help me now
