You offer me all your love and sympathy
Sweet affection, baby, it's killing me
Cause baby, baby, can't you see?

How could I stop once I start, baby?
How could I stop once I start?
Yeah, yeah, how could I stop once I start?

You look at me but I don't know what you see
A reflection, baby, of what I want to be
I see your face and I want to roll with it
But how could I stop, baby, how could I stop?

Stop it, stop it

If I could, I'd take you all the way
Baby, baby, listen to what I say
There's even some things that I just will not pay

Cause how could I stop if I start, baby?
How could I stop if I start, start with you?
If I start, baby
How could I stop if I start with you, baby?

Yeah

It's too easy to lay here at your feet
But I couldn't take the heat
There's somewhere else maybe you should go
Baby, maybe, baby, just further down the road

How could I stop if I start with you, baby?
How could I stop once I start?
You tell me, baby, once I've started with you
How could I stop once I start?

Stop, stop, stop it

How could I stop?
