Lyrics
I sparkle, loving the way that I do  (it is true)
I feel so good just having you
Breathlessly and eager, submission isn’t easy for me
We were so loving, wasn’t we? I’d always known it could be

Don’t want to do nothing, tied against your will
This ain’t no cheap thrill, you got to know just how it feel
If you think you’re going to fall, all you have to do is call
I have nothing but myself and I give myself to you

Say child tingle sparkle, I hope the love never breaks away  (fire burning everyday)
Keep a little fire burning everyday, and save all the warmth for you
Just want you to know when your jealousy shows  (understand)
Understand there will be no other man but you, baby
You can believe this love in me as I believe in you

And when times are low and I am really on your mind
Everybody needs some time, something funky good and kind
And you always seem to please me and you wear me down so easy
Good work is never done until the morning comes

Just want you to know when your jealousy shows
Understand there will be no other man but you, baby
You can believe this love in me as I believe in you

Don’t want to do nothing, tied against your will
This ain’t no cheap thrill, you got to know just how it feel
And if you think you’re going to fall, all you have to do is call
I have nothing but myself and I give myself to you

When times are low and I am really on your mind
Everybody needs some time, something funky good and kind
Breathlessly and eager, you got me round your finger
A sparkle with the fire, you always take me higher
You always seem to please me, you wear me down so easy
Good work is never done until the morning, the morning comes

Català – Brillar
Brillo, m’encanta la manera com ho faig  (és veritat)
Em sento tan bé, tan sols, tenint-te
Sense alè i delerosa, la submissió no és fàcil per a mi
Estàvem tan carinyosos, oi? Sempre havia sabut que podia passar

No vull fer res, lligada en contra de la teva voluntat
Això no és una emoció barata, has de saber exactament què se sent
Si creus que cauràs, l’únic que has de fer és trucar
No tinc res més que a mi mateixa i em lliuro a tu

Petita espurna de formigueig, espero que l’amor mai es trenqui  (foc cremant cada dia)
Manten un petit foc cremant cada dia, i guarda tota l’escalfor per a tu
Només vull que sàpigues quan la teva gelosia es mostra  (entén)
Entén que no hi haurà un altre home fora de tu, noi
Pots creure en aquest amor meu com jo crec en tu

I quan tenim moments baixos i estic realment en la teva ment
Tothom necessita una mica de temps, alguna cosa original, bona i amable
I sempre sembles complaure’m, i em portes cap avall fàcilment
La bona feina mai està acabada fins que arriba el matí

Només vull que sàpigues quan la teva gelosia es mostra
Entén que no hi haurà un altre home fora de tu, noi
Pots creure en aquest amor meu com jo crec en tu

No vull fer res, lligada en contra de la teva voluntat
Això no és una emoció barata, has de saber exactament què se sent
I si creus que cauràs, l’únic que has de fer és trucar
No tinc res més que a mi mateixa i em lliuro a tu

Quan tenim moments baixos i estic realment en la teva ment
Tothom necessita una mica de temps, alguna cosa original, bona i amable
Sense alè i delerosa, em tens al voltant del teu dit
Una espurna del foc, sempre em portes més amunt
Sempre sembles complaure’m, em portes cap avall fàcilment
La bona feina mai està acabada fins que el mati, el matí arriba
