I put a spell on you – I love you anyhow, And I don’t care If you don’t want me, I’m yours right now…il hear this song that breaks my heart and think of you and I think of you and think of you…I can see a lot of life in you, yes I can see a lot of life in you and that dress looks nice on you…I can really love Really love Really love Really love Really love Love love love love Love love love love …you used to call me on your cellular device (late) at night…that could only mean one thing…When you’re on the outside baby and you can`t get in I will show you you’re so much better than you know. When you’re lost and you’re alone and you can’t get back again I will find you darling… I’ll still be lookin’ in your ebony eyes And we’ll go on and on, and on…I need somebody to love, And when I’m lonely, if someone would only, Want to be sweet and kind…She walked in through the ‘out’ door…..built like she was she had the nerve to ask if I would do her any harm…I love the, I love the way you love…Oh what’s love got to do, got to do with it What’s love but a second hand emotion… Cause I know you could possess my body, That’s why I don’t wanna love you – That’s why I ain’t gonna love you, Cause I know you like to be in charge, But with me you know you couldn’t control me, don’t cha?, Cause you know Id make you drop your guard, Cause I’d have you eating your ego…I’m feelin’ myself, I’m feelin’ myself I’m feelin’ my, feelin’ myself I’m feelin’ myself, I’m feelin’ my, feelin’ my, feelin’ myself I’m feelin’ myself, I’m feelin’ my, feelin’ myself I’m feelin’ myself, I’m feelin’ my/ Male or female, it make no difference I stop the world, world stop…Carry on…You cry out in your sleep, All my failings exposed, And there’s a taste in my mouth, As desperation takes hold… lets get suspect, lets get wet, every little defect gets respect, just protect, what you expect/ You walked into the room tonight your lips reflect the light…now I wanna be your dog. And now I’m ready to close my mind, And now I’m ready to feel your hand, And lose my heart on the burning sands, And now I wanna be your dog…When you kiss me I just gotta, Kiss me I just gotta, Kiss me I just gotta say :…And baby I can see you’ve been fucked with too But that don’t mean your loving days are through…And if a double-decker bus, Crashes in to us, To die by your side, Is such a heavenly way to die.. Set me free, why don’t you babe? Get out my life, why don’t you babe? you really don’t want me, just keep me hanging on… Mama, they call her bad girl, All because she wanted to be free, But I’m in love with the little girl, And I believe that she loves me… Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me…Ive been loving you too long – My love is growing stronger, as you become a habit to me, Ohh, I’ve been loving you too long, I don’t wanna stop now..
