lyrics
Love gives me poetry,
Stays up all night and puts a curse on me.
Oh anything you want,
Turn around and I'll take you there.
I know it's going to be,
Take your shackles off o' me.
This city's gone, I'm gone over there.

Kick it in, kick it in,
Build it up and burn it down again.
Kick it in, kick it in,
Burn down to the ground.
Kick it in, kick it in,
Tell me about this place you've been.
I don't want it there's a fever going around.

Take a walk down town,
See what's going on.
If you want to find a hidden key.
There's nothing here on me.
Any city, anywhere,
Any colour I don't care.
You belong to me.
And that's the way it's gonna be.

Kick it in, kick it in.

Yeah kick it in, kick it in,
Raise it up and let it live again.
Feel your body shake and take off.
You can lie but keep it in.
Keep me down here wondering.
So what's it going to be?
Come on in.

I like the shape you're in,
You keep me wondering, wondering, wondering.

Eyes upon you black and brown.
Spread your love all over town.
Give me fire, body heat.
Say hello to me.
I want to go anywhere.
Any colour I don't care.
Don't believe in all you see,
And don't get caught.

Kick it in, kick it in,
Tell me about this love you've been.
Kick it in, kick it in,
Turn this life around.
Kick it in, kick it in,
Shake the ghosts from deep within.
Close the door down,
Don't let the demons in.

Kick it in, kick it in,
I only want to be your friend,
Put your hands in my hand,
And take off with me.

Listen baby, I'm going home,
I'm going home.
I'm going home.
Come on walk with me.

Cause I know what I see,
Kick it in.
Kick it in, kick it in,
Tell me 'bout the place you're in.
I've got a new gold dream,
I'm moving on, I'm moving on.
You're moving on, you're moving on.
You're moving on, yeah.
Kick it in, kick it in,
I'm moving on.
