Corinne Bailey Rae – Green Aphrodisiac Lyrics

By Azlyrics

[Verse 1]
Laying in the grass in the afternoon
Something kind of magical in sunlight
Flowers uncurl in the garden
Shoots are coming up again, it’s springtime

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s new like the day I saw your eyes
Green like the leaves unfurling up against a blue sky
Blossom leaf falls in a slow dance
Swaying got me in a trance, so high
It’s all green, all new, and I want to spend it with you

[Chorus]
Lost in your wonderland
Green aphrodisiac
Kiss me, your lips taste of honey
Songbirds and bees start a-hummin’
Come to my wonderland
Green aphrodisiac
The same thing that grows in the garden
Flows in me and you

[Post-Chorus]
I want to go where all the rainbows start and flow

[Verse 2]
Just when I thought it was not to be
Holiest of mysteries, it’s all green
And everything that I have planted has grown
And all it needed was time, earth, water, and the sunlight
Down to the middle

[Chorus]
Lost in your wonderland
Green aphrodisiac
Kiss me, your lips taste of honey
Songbirds and bees start a-hummin’
Come to my wonderland
Green aphrodisiac
The same thing that grows in the garden
Flows in me and you

[Post-Chorus]
I want to go where all the rainbows start and flow
How could I know it was Sunday?
How could I know you would take over my mind?
I want to know where all the flowers unfold
Cause I know that
The same thing grows in the garden, flows in me and you

[Bridge]
Aphrodisiac, green aphrodisiac
I want to go with you
Where it’s green and all the flowers grow
All the water flows, all the memories go
Just for the afternoon, ooh baby

[Breakdown]
Aphrodisiac, green aphrodisiac
Kiss me your lips taste of honey
Songbirds and bees start hummin’
Oh, out to the garden
I’m, I’m foolin’ around with you, oh, oh

I want you there
When I get out
And the grass is wet and the lilac is in the air again

[Outro]
You (na na na na na)
Oh (na na na na na)
Oh, ah-ah (na na na na na)
Oh, oh, oh, oh (na na na na na)
(Na na na na na)
(Na na na na na)
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
(Na na na na na)
(Na na na na na)
(Na na na na na)
(Na na na na na)
(Na na na na na)
