Lyrics

Verse 1 (Madonna):
I'm tired of being far away from home
Far from what can help, far from where it's safe
Hope it's not too late
Rush, rush, rush on you, love, love, loved on you
Love you like a fool, put my trust in you

Pre-Chorus (Madonna and Swae Lee):
'Cause you're the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous
The feelings never fade
I don't think we should play with this
Said come, come give me strength
I don't think we should wait for this
'Cause you're the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous

Chorus (Madonna & Swae Lee):
Ooh (Ooh), my cravings get dangerous
Ooh, I don't think we should play with this
Ooh (Ooh), my cravings get dangerous
Ooh, I don't think we should wait

Verse 2 (Madonna and Swae Lee, Both):
'Cause I'm just me (Yeah), that's all I can be (Ooh)
Something real (Yeah), something I can feel
You know I just can't change, this is how I'm made
I'm not afraid, take me to that place

Pre-Chorus (Madonna and Swae Lee, Both):
You're the one I crave (Crave)
And my cravings get dangerous
The feelings never fade
I don't think we should play with this
Said come, come give me strength
I don't think we should wait for this
'Cause you're the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous

Chorus (Madonna and Swae Lee):
Ooh (Ooh), my cravings get dangerous
Ooh, I don't think we should play with this
Ooh (Ooh), my cravings get dangerous
Ooh, I don't think we should wait

Verse 3 (Swae Lee):
You're on me, I don't think you should wait (Wait)
You're only one pull up away (Away)
You're down to ride, you ride me like a wave (Ride, yeah)
I gave you a sensation (Ooh)
A loner, days we used to chase
It's do or die, yeah, my love life can get crazy (Crazy)
It's on the line, girl, you're risking everything (Thing)
It's over-X-rated

Bridge (Madonna and Swae Lee):
Ran so far to try to find the thing I lacked and there it was
Inside (Side) of (Of) me (Me)
Ran and ran and ran so fast, a thing to last, and there it was
I hear (Hear) you (You) breathe '(Breathe)

Pre-Chorus (Madonna and Swae Lee, Both):
'Cause you're the one I crave (Crave)
And my cravings get dangerous
The feelings never fade
I don't think we should play with this
Said come, come give me strength
I don't think we should wait for this
'Cause you're the one I crave
And my cravings get dangerous

Chorus (Madonna and Swae Lee, Both):
Ooh (Ooh), my cravings get dangerous
Ooh, I don't think we should play with this
Ooh (Ayy, ooh), my cravings get dangerous
Ooh, I don't think we should wait

Outro (Swae Lee):
It's on the line, girl, you're risking everything
