Counting On You lyrics

I want you to be my little lover
I want you to be my power glide
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, dont misunderstand me
Cuz theres a rumor going round
Somebodys gonna let me down
And I dont know what its all about
Or if its true
Im counting on you

I want you to drive my el dorado
I want you to fly my aeroplane
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, dont misunderstand me
Cuz theres a rumor going round
Somebodys gonna let me down
And I dont know what its all about
Or if its true
Im counting on you
Counting on you

Well I saw your reflection in the river
And I swear I heard you in the wind
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, dont misunderstand me
Cuz theres a rumor going round
Somebodys gonna let me down
And I dont know what its all about
Or if its true
Im counting on you
