Would you dance if I asked you to dance? Would you run and never look back Would you cry if you saw me crying Would you save my soul tonight? Would you tremble if I touched your lips? Would you laugh oh please tell me these Now would you die for the one you love? Hold me in your arms tonight?
I can be you hero baby…I can kiss away the pain I will stand by you forever…You can take my breath away

Have I told you how good it feels to be me, when I`m in you? I can only stay clean when you are around. Don`t let me fall. If I close my eyes forever, Would it ease the pain? Could I breathe again?
Maybe I`m addicted, I`m out of control, but you`re the drug that keeps me from dying. Maybe I`m a liar, but all I really know is You`re the only reason I`m trying.
DO YOU KNOW
‘Do You Know’ also known as the ‘The Ping Pong Song’ was the first single from Enrique’s album ‘Insomniac’. The song was released in 2007 soaring high on the international charts all over the world.
Do you know what it feels like, Loving someone that`s in a rush to throw you away. Do you know what it feels like, To be the last one to know the lock on the door has changed. Birds, flying south is a sign of changes, At least you can predict this every year. Love, you never know the minute it ends suddenly, I can`t get her to speak. Maybe if i knew all the things that took to save us, I could fix the pain that bleeds inside of me. The look in your eyes don`t say the same about me, I`m standing on the edge and I don`t know what else to give.
RING MY BELL
Enrique’s pop and R&B album ‘Insomniac’ was a huge hit in itself but ‘Ring My Bells’ went on to become a huge chart rocker from his fourth English-language album. The intrinsically shot video was highly talked about too.
Ring my bells, ring my bells Ring my bell, ring my bells Sometimes you love it…Sometimes you don’t Sometimes you need it then you don t then you let go Sometimes we rush it Sometimes we fall It doesn’t matter baby we can take it real slow Cause the way that we touch it`s something that we can t deny And the way that you move oh you make me feel alive So come on…. Ring my bells, ring my bells!
