Lyrics

I can't help it girl, I'm the preacher's son
I'ma speak my piece 'til the day is done
But I will never let you go
Once I have got you in my hold
I'm gonna mold ya' into something that I like

I can't change my ways, I'm a pompous fool
If you need a fix, then I'll be your tool
But I will never let you go
Once I have got you in my hold
I'm gonna mold ya' into something that I like

Always take me back
Falling off the track
Always, I'm on fire to be with you tonight
And make your body come

I can't be someone that you wish I was
Just a tag-along, like your goofy cuz
But I will never let you go
Once I have got you in my hold
I'm gonna mold ya' into something that I like
