Girl, give it up, go and run away To the arms of a magic day Where you can stay Where you can find yourself Find yourself Lose your fear, 'cause there is no one here Do what you want to do There's nobody stopping you, no Give yourself and let the music take you far Then you will know who you are Baby, getting higher We're getting higher Movin' with the vibe Let the rhythm make you fly You are the one! Baby, isn't this fun Tonight Whoa-oh oh ohhhh, whoa-oh You and I I know we can move if we try You know this is how it should be Baby, getting higher We're getting higher Open up your eyes, Everyday is a surprise You are the one Baby, the only one Tonight We're getting higher We're getting higher, Start again from here And a new you will appear You are the one, Baby, isn't this fun? Tonight
