Lyrics

I can't ask you to thrill me
That be asking too much
I can't ask you to fulfill my expectations
That you gave me after we first touched
But the feeling that's been building inside me
Is too hard to resist
I can't wait much longer 'til you tell me baby
There's some chance we'll get together maybe
Sooner or later I'll be in with half a chance
I can't wait 'til I hear you tell me that you want me.
'til then my dreams are gonna haunt me
Got my demons doing such a happy dance

Exorcise my demons
Cast them out today
Only you can do it
Make them go away
Let me know you love me
Tell me there's a chance
I don't want to sit and watch my
Demons dance

Watch my demons dance
Watch my demons dance
Demons dance

Girl I want you to do it
I'm been waiting so long
Do you have to put me through those complications
When you know I try hard not to be wrong
But, but the feeling that's been building inside me
Is too hard to resist
I can't wait much longer 'til you tell me baby
There's some chance we'll get together maybe
Sooner or later I'll be in with half a chance
I can't wait 'til I hear you tell me that you want me.
'til then my dreams are gonna haunt me
Got my demons doing such a happy dance

Come on exorcise my demons
Cast them out today
Only you can do it
Make them go away
Let me know you love me
Tell me there's half a chance
I can't sit around and watch those
Demons dance

Watch my demons dance
Watch my demons dance
Oh no
Demons dance
Oh no
Demons dance
Oh watch those demons dance baby
