original lyrics, Santana: Smooth

Man it's a hot one 
Like seven inches from the midday sun 
I hear you whisper and the words melt everyone 
But you stay so cool 
My munequita, my Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa 
Your my reason for reason 
The step in my groove 

And if you say this life ain't good enough 
I would give my world to lift you up 
I could change my life to better suit your mood 
Cause you're so smooth 

And just like the ocean under the moon 
Well that's the same emotion that I get from you 
You got the kind of lovin that can be so smooth 
Gimme your heart, make it real 
Or else forget about it 

I'll tell you one thing 
If you would leave it would be a crying shame 
In every breath and every word 
I hear your name calling me out 
Out from the barrio, you hear my rhythm from your radio 
You feel the turning of the world so soft and slow 
Turning you round and round

Man, no I'm not one
Of heaven's angels or the saving son
I hear the truth and yet the words just pass on through
I am such a fool
Mi no perfecto, I'm in my sin but I must let go
You're my reason for living
The pump in my heart

And if you say this God ain't real enough
I would give my life to show you truth
Cause He changed my life, and everyday's amazed
Who thinks I'm crazed?

You came down from the heavens unto the Earth
To give every sinning woman and man a second birth
You're not the kind of God to be taken lightly
I'll give you my heart, have it sealed
Please don't forget about me

If I've learned one thing
Its that I need you behind my every step
In every breath and every word
I need your strength helping me out
Gone from the conscious, I see your vision in my dreamless sleep
I feel the churning of my mind, so hard and you're
turning me round and round
