Written by Alx Kawakami (SESAC) Eric Berdon (SESAC)

I watch you dance, all night,
I wanna feel your body close up next to mine.
It’s like a flame inside,
When that funkulele takes you for a ride.

Shaking in your grass skirt
Show a little under,
So much more I wanna see.
Cocos on your brown skin
Knockin’ to the rhythm,
Don’t you wanna set me free.

She’s spinning like a fire knife,
An angel dressed in smoke and light
I’m gonna let her burn all night,
She’s spinning like a fireknife.

Hey...Let me touch your lips, feel the heat,
I need to taste some sugar ohh I need a treat.
I just can’t wait, till dawn,
My knees are weak but my heart’s going strong

Sweatin like a Mai Tai
Meltin on your shave ice
Hit me with a hurricane
Pull me in the rip tide
Toss me on the shoreline
I wanna ride again


from Rise & Shine, released August 9, 2016
